Catalina Island is a must-see gem off the coast of Southern California, 30 miles away from Long Beach. You can reach the island on the express ferry, which takes about an hour and departs daily from Long Beach, arriving in Avalon. Once you get to Catalina, the options for outdoor activities are endless. It’s a haven for boating enthusiasts, scuba divers looking to explore the magical kelp forests, and families looking to see dolphins, whales, sea lions, and all types of seabirds.
A private yacht charter with a USCG-certified captain on Catalina Island will give you an insider look at highlights of the island, including the developed parts of Avalon City and Two Harbors Village. Here you can explore the shops and restaurants on the island. So much of Catalina Island is inaccessible to people, as it's preserved nature, but you can see the natural beauty of the island the best from a boat. Overnight charters are available if you’re looking to stay on Catalina for multiple days, and want the experience of sleeping on board a boat, while also getting a full view of all angles of the island.
If you’re looking to go snorkeling, paddleboarding, kayaking, scuba diving, or just relax on a boat with a cocktail, you can find it with a Catalina Island boat charter. Cooling off with a swim is a must during the hot summer months. Another popular adventure for visitors to Catalina Island is a fishing charter. Catch Seabass, yellowtail, and halibut on your deep-sea fishing adventure in the Pacific. All equipment can be included in the price when you book a boat rental or charter, so let your captain or owner know what you’re hoping to do during your visit to Catalina Island.
Harry and Alex made our time fishing really awesome. We had some new fishers on board, and they were patient enough to teach us what we didn’t know. They took us out to a really great couple of spots where we caught some excellent keepers, and were very sociable and comfortable/fun to be around. We will definitely be back again!
We booked with Daniel for a bachellorette party and he was super accommodating with good recommendations! I would highly recommend everyone to book with him!
