Boat-In Campsites are accessible only by boat or kayak. Each of the nine locations are on the leeside of Santa Catalina Island (same side as Avalon). A ranger will check you in to your Boat-In Campsite. In order to reach the island, boat transportation is the most popular and easiest way to travel. Catalina Express passenger boats leave from San Pedro, Long Beach, and Dana Point. The Catalina Flyer departs from Newport Beach. All of those ports access Avalon, on the east end of the island. In order to travel to Two Harbors (the Isthmus) on the west end of the island, passenger boats leave from San Pedro only. Boat transportation is for people, no vehicles allowed. Another way to reach the island is by private boat or plane/helicopter. The Safari Bus from Avalon to Two Harbors runs daily but seats are very limited and reservations are required. The Safari Bus is not a tour. It is transportation between Two Harbors and Avalon with stops at Black Jack trailhead, Catalina Airport In-the-Sky and a bus change at Little Harbor. There is no scheduled fairy between Avalon and Two Harbors. There is no bus services to any of the Boat-In campgrounds.
