Franko Maps Two Harbors Santa Catalina Island Card
Detailed underwater identification of sealife is just the beginning of the possibilities for this multi-hued, super high-quality, glossy laminated map and fish guide. Pick it up and you’ll see what we mean. Measuring approximately 6” x 9” they’d be great as little place mats for hors d’oeuvres plates, coasters for tropical drinks, promotions for sea food restaurants, or just colorful souvenirs for you and your guests of some great underwater adventure you’ve had in an exotic location.
Laminated to protect against water. Very detailed images.
Side 1 shows Franko’s Map of Two Harbors, which is virtually the same map of Two Harbors that also appears on side 2 of Franko’s Map of Santa Catalina Island. Two Harbors has long been a favorite destination for diving and other forms of fun for Franko and family. It has been the site of Franko’s Annual Two Harbors Jugglers Jam, where dozens of juggling friends get together. The area is shown in beautiful green hues of shaded relief, with topo lines for the hikers. Every important place in the Village of Two Harbors is mentioned and located on the map, as is the route to the well-loved Two Harbors Campground. Numerous local dive sites include Bird Rock, Ship Rock, Eagle Reef, Little Geiger, Juicy Reef, Eel Cove, Jake’s Beach, Lion Head, Cherry Cove, 4th of July Cove, Isthmus Cove, Harbor Reef, Big Fisherman’s Cove and the Isthmus High Spot on the Catalina Channel Side of the Island, and Pin Rock, Catalina Harbor and Catalina Head on the seaward side of Santa Catalina Island. The map also indicates that the Two Harbors area is great for kayaking, which of course I can attest to as a fact.
Side 2 is Franko’s Santa Catalina Island Fish Identification Card. Included is an array of over four dozen Santa Catalina Island kelp forest creatures amongst a swirl of blue water and kelp. The variety includes the California State fish, the Garibaldi, and many of the most commonly seen fish and invertebrates in Catalina’s kelp forests. Sheephead, blue shark, leopard shark, rockfish, perch, white sea bass, yellowtail, bat ray, giant sea bass, horn shark, halibut, kelp bass, sculpin, blackeyed goby and many others are there. Invertebrates include the ochre seastar, sunflower star, bat star, strawberry anemones, spiny lobster, Spanish shawl, gorgonian fan, sea cucumber, octopus, and purple urchin. Note that Little Fisherman’s Cove to a small degree, and Big Fisherman’s Cove to a large degree are very noteworthy snorkeling spots for viewing leopard sharks. Near the USC Marine Science Center at Big Fisherman’s Cove there are numerous moray eels in shallow water.
