POSTPONED: The Isthmus - A Three Hour Tour with Sven Kirsten


More details to come soon. If you already purchased tickets, we will be reaching out to you. 


Join us for a very special "Three Hour Tour" to the Isthmus with Sven Kirsten, guest curator of the Tall Tiki Tales: Catalina as a South Seas Island exhibition on Saturday, June 3rd.

Sven will guide a group of intrepid explorers on a boat trip from Avalon to what is now known as Two Harbors to discover the relics of Christian's Hut and other South Sea movie locations at the Catalina Isthmus. A respite of lunch and cocktails on the beach next to the Harbor Reef restaurant will strengthen the expedition members for the cruise back to Avalon. 


9:45-10:15 am: Check-in with museum staff on the green Pleasure Pier

10:30 am: Board the Cyclone in Avalon and begin the adventure

11:15 am: Arrive in Two Harbors

12-3 pm: Tour(s) and Lunch (specifics TBD)

3:45 pm: Line up to board the Cyclone

4 pm: Travel back to Avalon 

4:45 pm: Arrive in Avalon

Travel on the Cyclone and lunch are included in the ticket price. All beverages, including any cocktails, will be available for purchase individually. 

Please note: The museum will stay open until 6 pm to accommodate those who wish to visit the Tall Tiki Tales: Catalina as a South Seas Island exhibition after we return from Two Harbors.

Members $125, Not-yet-Members $150 (Use this code: FOR2HARBORS to receive 25% off the ticket price)

We recommend making any hotel or travel arrangements to and from the island early. An overnight stay is not necessarily needed to participate, but we suggest making it a tiki weekend by also attending our First Fridays at the Museum: Taller Tiki Tales the evening prior to this tour.
