Operators of the powerboat Cyclone announced the addition of evening runs between Avalon and Two Harbors for Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Cyclone transports Catalina Island visitors from Avalon to Two Harbors within 40 minutes (versus one-plus hour between the two cities via private vehicle and about two hours by Safari Bus).
The boat’s operator stated the added runs are due to a 70 percent increase in ridership. Those boarding Cyclone are provided with a narrated cruise as they navigate to Two Harbors, where they can pursue various activities such as hiking, camping or kayaking.
The Catalina Island Co. hopes the addition of evening runs would translate into increased business for Harbor Reef Restaurant and Harbor Sands.
Tickets between Avalon and Two Harbor are $15 each way and available for sale at Green Pleasure Pier, Two Harbors Visitor Services or any other Catalina Island Co. ticket booth. Online purchases are available at visitcatalinaIsland.com/thboat.
