Santa Catalina Harbor

Posted by Picasa

Sailing Directions -- 1853

"The harbor is on the SW side of the island by the same name. It's approaches are bold and clear from hidden dangers. When abreast of the entrance which is marked by a low neck of land extending across the island. At some distance from it the land appears like two very high islands. Stand in for the opening and anchor on either side at Ballast Point. Inside of Ballast Point there is hardly room for a vessel to swing at her anchor, but as the harbor is perfectly land-locked, she can moor by running a hawser to the rocks and lie with perfect safety."
