HOST:
This is a self-guided field trip. You do not have a host. Parent is responsible. Please make sure to fill out our liability form below.

LEARNING:
A custom-designed educational packet will be paired with this field trip. As part of this educational itinerary, you get to download our Catalina Island Packet.

WHAT TO EXPECT:

Hop aboard the Catalina Express in Long Beach and relax on the 1-hour journey across the Pacific to Catalina Island, where you’ll arrive in Avalon, the southernmost city in Los Angeles County.

 

When you get off the ferry, walk just five minutes into downtown Avalon to begin your independent exploration of the island. This is not a guided tour—your time on Catalina is your own to do whatever you wish. However, your added excursion is part of your itinerary. There are no changes, cancellations allowed with this package.

 

Admire views of the waterfront along Avalon Bay, perhaps visit a restaurant or café, go shopping or do something more active (all at your own expense). The number of vehicles on the island is limited, so enjoy the pedestrian-friendly streets of town.

 

Return to your original departure point on the ferry when you’re finished on the island.

 

Long Beach If you have time before or after your ferry departure or arrival at Catalina Landing, perhaps check out some of Long Beach’s attractions, such as the Aquarium of the Pacific. You can grab food and drinks at the Catalina Lounge or Catalina Deli if you need something before or after your ferry ride. The ferry service runs daily (schedule varies by season) and can accommodate surfboards, strollers and bikes.
