Catalina Island Day Trip

Wonderful trip...didn't have any worries! The bus picked us up at the hotel, delivered us to the Ferry and was there to pick us back up when the Ferry returned. Loved the Island, as well!

Great trip! On Catalina Express trip over captain stopped so we could view a whale (!!) and on trip back saw a huge pod of dolphins leaping out of the water in the boat's wake. Those two things were worth the price of admission for me! The island is beautiful...with many views reminding me of something out of the movie Jurassic Park. We rented a golf cart to explore with ($80 for 2 hours with an additional one free if wanted...we used all 3 hours.). Make sure you have CASH or TRAVELER'S CHECKS for a deposit. They accept credit cards for the actual payment but want a cash or t-check for the deposit. This immediately put a damper on the trip because I carry very little cash...until a very, very nice woman asked me how much cashe I had and accepted a much lower amount as a deposit. I wound up letting her keep it as a Christmas Gift for being so nice and helping me out.Only down side to the trip is there wasn't enough time to see and do everything I would have liked to.

We had the most relaxing and wonderful time in Catlina we went and sat close with the dolfins and stayed overnite which is a must as you dont have time in one day to see and do what you want.

Great side trip for something different to do in LA. The boat ride from Long Beach is about 70 minutes so sit back and relax with a drink and some snacks. We rented a golf cart at the terminal for 2 hours ($80) and got a third hour for free. Drove around the island, stopped for lunch on the beach and got the cart back just in time. Walked around the village with lots of shops to buy souvenirs and reasonably priced T-shirts. Lots more to do like zip lining, renting kayaks, glass bottom boat ride, submarine ride and hosted tours. Could have spent more time there and we'll probably go back if we are ever in the area again.

It was great experience, I think nobody should miss a visit to Catalina Islands. It was very convenient as bus picked us up outside the hotel and dropped us back there. My husband and I loved it.

Lovely spot and would have liked to spend more time there. Ferry trip over and back was great and we saw dolphins on the way over. I want to go back as there was much we did not get a chance to see!
