Tour the Tuna Club of Avalon

Founded in 1898, the historic Tuna Club of Avalon was previously restricted to public access, but now the museum has partnered with the historic clubhouse to offer docent-led tours for groups of eight or more.

Trophies, artifacts, and photographs are among many relics exhibited in the club, documenting the history of big-game fishing and the first recorded rod and reel catches of tuna, marlin and broadbill swordfish. The Tuna Club’s greatest legacy stems from its founder, Dr. Charles Frederick Holder. A pioneer in ocean conservation, Holder instigated the first regulations to govern big game fishing. To this day, its members strictly adhere to the rules as dictated by the original charter, and the club remains committed to ethical angling, conservation and preserving the sport’s great traditions. The Tuna Club's illustrious history includes a number of famous anglers, such as British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, movie director Cecil B. DeMille, actors Charlie Chaplin, Bing Crosby and Stan Laurel, writer Zane Grey and United States Presidents Roosevelt and Hoover, just to name a few.

Reservations must be made 2-4 weeks in advance
