Mooring Around Catalina Island

Although moorings around Catalina Island are leased to private parties, they are rented on a first-come, first-serve basis whenever they are not in use. Moorings fees are based on the size of the mooring and the length of your stay. To rent a mooring, just call Harbor Patrol on VHF Channel 09 when you arrive, and give them the name of the cove where you wish to moor. 

There are four general mooring areas:
  • Isthmus Cove, Fourth of July Cove, and Cherry Cove
  • Emerald Bay, Howland's Landing, and Little Geiger
  • White's Landing, Moonstone, Hen Rock, Buttonshell
  • Catalina Harbor, Wells Beach

Mooring lessees can call or email the Harbor Department for their reservation. Please call 310.510.4253 for mooring information. Check-out time is 8:00 AM. If you wish to extend your stay, please contact the Harbor Patrol on VHF Channel 09 to check availability.

Two Harbors Waitlist Information

Boaters may apply to the Wait List to become a Mooring Site Sublessee. There are 11 coves for which you can apply. Each cove listing has a $25 start-up fee, with an annual maintenance fee of $10 per cove listing. The average time for obtaining a Mooring Site Sublease and Service Contract is between 10 to 32 years, depending on the cove. 

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 24 hours in advance of their arrival time for weekdays and by 8:00 PM Thursday for weekends.
