Catalina Island Trip Report

Darin and I were looking for a beach vacation when we came across some kayak fishing articles online. After a little research we decided to check out Two Harbors on Catalina Island off the coast of Los Angeles.
The small island was a convenient paradise. We were able to drive from still winter Colorado to our island vacation with fun stops in Vegas along the way.
As soon as we hit the water our wildlife experiences were nothing short of spectacular. We saw a gigantic school of dolphins while on the ferry and it was incredible to watch them surf the boats wake with ease.

The harbor seals and sea otters were curious critters that swam all around us while we fished. Being in a kayak was a great way to get a close glimse of the wildlife. The water in Catalina was so clear it was easy to see the beautiful Garibaldi fish swimming in kelp beds below us.

One day while floating in serenity we saw an incredible Bald Eagle fly by, hit the brakes with talons flexed and dive bomb a fish within 40 feet of us while we were fishing in the LiquidLogic Deuce Coupe.

The fishing was fun and Darin caught enough Calico Bass for dinner two nights. He also brought in an shovel head shark and an eel.

The LiquidLogic Deuce Coupe sit on top kayak was a cadillac for Catalina Island. Having a sit on top is awesome for snorkeling and fishing. The LLDC's paddle holders, dry spaces and beverage holders were solid which kept everything in place and comfortable while we were slaying some Calico Bass. The boat is also very stable which was great climbing in and out while snorkeling . Even when loaded down with gear the LLDC surfed onto to some rocky beaches with ease. The drop down skeg was great for getting out of the harbor on some windy afternoons.

It isn't possible to do this island justice with photos or video so get out there and see it for yourself! We are looking forward to a future self support exploring more of the secluded beaches, great fishing and pristine paddling.
