Let’s take a look back over the Avalon Harbor stats BC (before COVID) to present:

Year—Total Boats Arrived—Total Nights Stayed





The boat stats for December 2022 exceeded December 2021 and 2019. The full year 2022 stats for the total boats arriving in Avalon were lower than 2021 and 2019; however, the total nights that those 14,076 boats stayed in Avalon exceeded 2021, 2020 and 2019!

New Year’s weekend was once again slow in the Harbor due to a severe weather warning. We are thankful to all the boaters who heeded the weather warnings and made other arrangements.

The total number of cruise ship passengers this December (29,393) was the second highest number of cruise ship passengers in the month December since the Harbor Department started recording the stats in the early 1990s. The most cruise ship passengers during the month of December was in 2003 at 32,661.
