Santa Catalina Island's beautiful scenery, pristine water and abundant boater services make it the ideal boating destination. There are several hundred moorings available for rent in Avalon Bay, which is a dinghy-ride away from the City of Avalon. Dinghy docks, pump-out and fuel stations and other services for boaters are available nearby.
When you arrive use VHF Channel 12 to contact the Harbor Patrol, who will meet you just outside the mooring area to assign and possibly escort you to your spot. Mooring assignments are temporary and fees are based on mooring size and length of stay. All mooring fees are payable upon arrival. .
Because Avalon Bay is a No-Discharge area, Harbor Patrol officials will ask you to drop a dye tab in your waste tank. If you do pump overboard the water around your boat will change color and you will be fined and asked not to return for an entire year.
