CATALINA — Boaters who will be spending the Thanksgiving holiday weekend on Catalina Island can find many dinner options on the island, from a traditional sit-down feast to a Mexican-style Thanksgiving meal.

In Two Harbors on Nov. 24, boaters can enjoy a large traditional Thanksgiving dinner at the Harbor Reef restaurant, where diners will be given the option of ordering a whole turkey or a plate dinner. The whole turkey dinner, carved at the table, also includes all the traditional Thanksgiving sides. To make reservations, call (310) 510-4215.

In Avalon, boaters can choose from a variety of menus. El Galleon Restaurant, Antonio’s Pizzeria & Cabaret and Mi Casita will offer boaters special Thanksgiving dinners throughout Thanksgiving Day.
