There are hundreds of mooring spaces available within dinghy distance of romantic Two Harbors and outlying coves. Mooring fees will no longer be collected on the water. The guest will be instructed to go online, call our office or come up to the end of the pier to pay their mooring fees and get their information into our database. Space may be limited during three-day and holiday weekends.
The moorings around Santa Catalina Island are leased to private parties but rented when available. Mooring charges are based on the size of the mooring and the length of your stay. Moorings are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Check-out time is 8:00 AM. If you wish to extend your stay, please contact the Harbor Patrol via VHF Channel 9 to check availability.
Note: Tidal changes will affect your mooring. Lines need to be adjusted periodically as tide changes add or remove slack.

Mooring regulations change during the winter months. Please refer to the following guidelines for mooring in the winter:
The State of California leases all Santa Catalina Island submerged lands, jointly to the Santa Catalina Island Company (SCICo) and the Catalina Island Conservancy (CIC) (except moorings between Frog Rock and Pebbly Beach, which are held in trust by the City of Avalon).
This “California State Submerged Lands Master Lease” controls all aspects of mooring use. A copy of this document is on file at the Harbor Department office.
Two Harbors Enterprises (THE), a wholly owned subsidiary of SCICo, and CIC have jointly formed Island Recreation Enterprises, LLC (IRE) which acts as the agent/operator in administering the conditions of the submerged lands lease. IRE then subleases to individual boaters the right to use a specific mooring.
Boaters may join a waiting list to sublease a mooring in any given cove. A small annual administrative fee is applied to stay active on this list.
Individuals with a sublease agreement may assign their mooring to boats that fall within the size configuration of that mooring.
Unreserved moorings are assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis. Sub-lessees must reserve within 24 hours in advance of their arrival time for weekdays, and by Thursday evening at 8:00 PM for weekend use.
Please observe the five-mile per hour, no-wake speed limit near mooring areas and anchorages.
Please do not run generators from 10:00 PM-7:00 AM.
Anchoring is at your own risk. Courtesy to other boaters is of utmost importance. Anchoring is permitted 100 yards outside the mooring area and is administered by the Two Harbors Harbor Department. If you have questions about anchoring, please contact the Harbor Patrol via VHF Channel 9.
Dogs must be leashed at all times. Always clean up after your pet. Free refuse bags are available at the base of the pier. Do not tie dogs to patio, walkways or other places, or leave them unattended. The Catalina fox population is still recovering from an outbreak of canine distemper virus. Prior to coming ashore, please make sure your pets have all their current shots, including the distemper vaccination.
