Catalina Ferry

Take the Catalina Ferry to Avalon and Two Harbors for a scenic and relaxing trip.  Every time I visit, I use Catalina Express as my ferry transportation.  The boats are on time, comfortable, clean, have restrooms, food and drinks plus they provide a nice ride.

The trip from Dana point is usually on medium sized boats and the trip takes about 90 minutes.  From Long Beach the trip is about an hour and usually on the larger boats.  Hint !- If you are susceptible to motion sickness, take the shorter trip on the larger boat that leaves from Long Beach.  While the ride is usually smooth, weather can occasionally factor in and provide for some rough seas.  Additionally, you can depart from San Pedro.  The San Pedro route offers boats that stop at Two harbors on the way to Avalon.  See the schedule below for details.




Take a look at the current Catalina weather and 5 day forecast.

Check out current conditions before you get on the Catalina Ferry.  Here is a live view of Avalon Harbor and Two Harbors.
