Let’s take a look back over the Avalon Harbor stats for the past three years:
Year Total Boats Arrived Nights Stayed
2019 14,246 53,740
2020 13,341 53,166
2021 14,857 57,072
While the boat stats for December 2021 fell below December 2019 and 2020, the full year stats are rather optimistic! New Year’s weekend was slow in the Harbor, but we are thankful to all the boaters who heeded the weather warnings and made other arrangements. We missed you, but hope you had a very safe and Happy New Year!
