Catalina Express offers year round service to Avalon and Two Harbors with up to 30 daily departures from ports in Long Beach, San Pedro and Dana Point. Its fleet of eight hi-speed, sleek vessels takes you to Catalina in an hour.

Catalina Island is a cute place that’s popular with scuba divers, hikers, families and anyone who needs to get away from the city or wants to take a romantic escape. Catalina weather is best in spring and fall. Summer days can be overcast until noon or later. In winter, storms can make the ferry ride unbearably choppy.

If you’ve only got a day, your best bet is to hang around town in Avalon. Walk along the waterfront. Sit and watch the people or do a little shopping. Once you’ve completed your experience, come back to the main land and stay at the Comfort Inn & Suites hotel in Long Beach next to the Long Beach Convention Center.
