Big Geiger Cove, Santa Catalina Island
Big Geiger Cove, Santa Catalina Island is located west of Little Geiger Cove. It has 10 anchorages and facilities for the Blue Water Cruising Club. Although there are no morrings, it is one of the best natural anchorages on the island. Big and Little Geiger coves are named for George Ledu Geiger (1912-1992)[SS#566-32-4802). Geiger attended Boy Scout Camp at Emerald Bay in the late 1920s. He built an 18-foot yawl he named the Daisy R. George. He and his wife, Thelma Julia Klots (1913-2006), had six children. The family spent summer time aboard the boat at Catalina Island.
