Catalina Island, Little Harbor & Two Harbors

Oct 01, 2019 - National Geographic Sea Lion


Our last day in the Channel Islands started a little rough, full of swell, giving a fair amount of movement to the ship as we made our way toward the morning’s anchorage. However, with teamwork from everyone on the bridge, deck and staff, we were able to get guests ashore safely for the morning’s activities of a variety of hikes at the very scenic Little Harbor! Once everyone was back aboard National Geographic Sea Lion repositioned to the more leeward side of the island, to the small community of Two Harbors. Here we had a chance to either go ashore to explore the town or do a lovely Zodiac cruise along the dramatic coast. The final touch of the day was put on by our incredible hotel staff, a cocktail hour on the sun deck, with margaritas and lots of good food!
