“A Bad End to a Good Time”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Great stay until we wanted to get on the boat home. We stood a little out of line and a harbor department employee scolded us. When one of our party questioned her, she told us she was off duty and called the Sheriff on us. We tried to communicate with a superior and they refused to find us anyone to communicate our concerns to. Beautiful place horribly managed.

“Sailing to Two Harbors”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

Two Harbors is a great place for a weekend trip. Its mostly undeveloped, but there is are a couple places to eat and a bar with a DJ and dancing that attracts everyone on Friday and Saturday. You can camp, but why not just charter and boat with some friends and sleep aboard. You can fill you days with swimming, snorkeling, and hiking.

“Highlight of My Year”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

Every year I come to Two Harbors with a group of my closest friends and it is hands down my favorite memory. You feel as though you're in the Mediterranean with the perfect amount of laid back and non-business without leaving behind the comfort of civilization. Much better than the crowded and over rated Avalon. Could easily stay my entire summer here.

“Banning House at Two Harbors Catalina Island”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2011 via mobile

When I go for a fun trip of scuba diving from the Los Angeles Area this is where I stay.
It has cool surroundings with a glob of old western History thrown in
the main lodge takes you back in time and allows great views of windward and lee sides of Catalina
The diving and snorkeling is excellent on this side of the island
you do need to plan ahead because there are not a lot of services on the west end of the island
one resturaunt one dive shop and irregular ferry service
