The indispensable Video Guide to Catalina Island for boaters (and landlubbers too!) This video is a must-see before you sail and while you're there. It includes everything you need to know about cruising to tranquil Catalina island, just 20 miles from busy Los Angeles off the California coast. The video covers mooring technique, anchoring, and a complete circumnavigation of the island describing the most popular harbors and anchorages.
Produced by Mark Ritts and Ted Field, longtime creators, writers and producers of award-winning national television series and documentaries.
During the video, you'll visit Avalon Harbor, the Isthmus, Cherry and Fourth of July Coves, Howland's Landing, Emerald Bay, Catalina Harbor, Little Harbor, and many others. The video also takes you onshore to visit the quaint town of Avalon, the isthmus outpost of Two Harbors, and the picturesque interior where buffalo roam--decedents of a herd imported for a 1930's Western Movie.
