The girl who was working that day was really helpful letting me know flying fish season peaks in July but hadn't started yet at the time I visited and also giving me info on tours. She also readily told me which items were from local artist, which was nice.

I LOVED this gallery - in fact, my whole family did. They had the most unique items, all from local artists. I bought a great flying fish sculpture, but honestly, I wanted at least 10 things in that store. Not your typical tourist shop - very cool items you won't see anywhere else. Worth spending a little more to get... More

Most of the gift shops along the waterfront are the standard, kitschy junk for tourists. This place has unusual and beautiful sea-themed jewelry and glass sculptures. No photos were permitted inside. I purchased a cute glass sculpture of a fish, suitable for wearing as a very, very large pendant necklace or a tiny wall hanging. It's a nice memento of... More

This shop has beautiful and unique jewelry that represents the flavor of Catalina at very affordable prices.

The staff here was very helpful and friendly... More
