One day each year the museum partners with the Tuna Club of Avalon to reveal the rich history and traditions of sport fishing on Catalina Island. This tour offers a rare glimpse inside the world-famous Tuna Club, a nationally registered historic landmark and the oldest fishing club in the world. It is the birthplace of sport fishing. Trophies, artifacts and photographs are among many historic objects exhibited in the clubhouse, documenting the history of big-game fishing and the first recorded rod and reel catches of tuna, marlin and broadbill swordfish. The club’s historian, Michael Farrior, will lead each tour sharing numerous fishing stories, information about the club, and its ongoing conservation efforts.
All proceeds benefit the Catalina Island Museum.
