Avalon & Twin Harbors for 2nd Anniversary

Hello,

My husband and I are staying in Avalon for a few nights and then staying at the Banning House for a couple of nights. Is there anyway to get over to Twin Harbors from Avalon besides the bus? We would love a water taxi transfer. Is that an option?

Also, this will be our first time staying in Twin Harbors. Any romantic suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you!

Catalina Express used to have an option from Avalon to Two Harbors. It's seasonal, though and I'm not sure they have that option anymore. I would call them and ask since it's not 100% clear on their website:

The Safari Bus is really you only option now that I'm aware of.

We were married at Banning House Lodge 20 years ago. We love to just hang out at the lodge and enjoy the views. You can have dinner at the Harbor Reef restaurant though I would not necessarily call it "romantic". You might be able to get a quiet table,depending on when you are going over.

it's not cheap but the Marina Del Rey boat has trips to Two Harbors from Avalon:

catalinaferries.com/avalon-two-harbors.html

It looks to be a 45 minute ride.

I believe they go from Marina Del Rey to Avalon, then over to Two Harbors where they stay until 4 pm and make their way back to Avalon and then to Marina Del Rey.

No trips on Tuesdays nor after summer.
