Shopping in Avalon’s small boutiques, dining in a seaside restaurant and admiring the harbor, dotted with shiny white yachts, can fill up a morning or afternoon. Then, throw on your swimsuit for some snorkeling, rent a bike to see more of the island or try your luck with a fishing pole. Golf, Segway-rental, scuba diving, kayaking, camping, hiking and parasailing are also available.
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!
As with all previous bookings with this company, it was very enjoyable experience from the pick up driver to the tour to the return journey. Knowlegeable people, friendly staff and an excellent choice of tours.
Look forward to my next booking.
Thanks to everyone
This trip was one of the best of our stay in California. Catalina is absolutely beautiful. We did snorkelling and kayaking while we were there. The shops are gorgeous also. The boat trip out is delightful and takes an hour. We came across a huge pod of dophins on the way so the cat stopped for everyone to take pictures. Fabulous place to visit. If we went again though we would find our own way to Newport Beach and get the cat out to the island and either spend a long day there or over night. Do not plan to do any activity that is long as you do not get much time on the island at all. Unfortunately the time we were able to spend on Catalina was only 3.25 hours which was no where near long enough. The boat dropped us at 11am and we had to be back at the dock at 3.15pm. The trip to the boat at Long Beach only took 45 minutes from Anaheim but going back to Anaheim was a 2 hour trip as the driver had to go to Huntington Beach to pick up a couple. I personally would not do this tour again as the time on Catalina is far too short and returning to Anaheim is far too long.
