Need an excuse to get to Catalina on Summer Sailstice? If so, join Blue Water Cruising Club members at Big Geiger Cove, Catalina Island.
The Blue Water Cruising Club is a non-profit corporation founded in 1945 and has leased the shore facilities at Big Geiger Cove since 1953. The Blue Water Cruising Club maintains no mainland facilities and its focus is the use and maintenance of the Cove facilities for members and their families. The Club is small, limited to no more than 55 boats and their owners, to ensure that all members have the opportunity to use the Cove and the facilities, even during the busiest summer weekends. The club is not full and is accepting applications for membership. Learn more at BlueWaterCruisingClub.org.
BWCC was founded in 1945 in San Pedro by a group of families seeking adventure at Catalina Island after the seaports were reopened toward the end of WWII. Several generations later, BWCC continues to thrive as a family oriented club for boaters to share new experiences on the ocean. Since 1953, BWCC has maintained its cove, Big Geiger, at Catalina Island in a way that preserves its beauty and serenity as our founding member families did 70 odd years ago. Big Geiger is a gorgeous cove with good sand for anchoring and modest accommodations ashore for club events, camping, snorkeling and other activities. Among our most popular events going back to the early days of our club are the Treasure Hunt, Easter Egg hunt, Labor Day Luau and July 4 games. Many of our members have cruised their boats to exotic destinations including Hawaii, the Galapagos, New Zealand, Alaska—and beyond!
