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.
Our family had the daunting task of taking three of our loved ones out to sea. Donna was there to help with suggestions and vital information. Captain Steve handled the ship with incredible expertise and our first mate, Jack, gave us exceptional customer service from the moment we boarded to our departure. Thank you Jack for smoothly guiding our event; you made it possible to focus on the day’s emotional energy without much thought to the process. Our family is blessed with the memories!
Had a great time for my Mother’s 50th Birthday! Considering the limitations we had because of the spill, Mike still made it very memorable and we were able to fulfill the entire experience for what we paid for. He was flexible and added to the fun. We will definitely consider booking again in the future. Thank you!
My family and I celebrated my dad’s 70th birthday and everything was perfect. We were a family of 21 and fit perfect. Thank you to the three of you for making this day special with no worries.
Anyone looking to book and host your party or any event will definitely not regret booking with Doug and Donna. Booking was easy! They were very communicative from beginning to end, and they were very helpful with suggestions to host my birthday party/guests. They accommodated to my specific requests. :). Their staff was helpful, friendly, and attentive. We all had an amazing time! The only thing I’d say is that 2hrs went by too fast then again that speaks on how much fun we were having. Nonetheless, I’d still consider booking a little longer for future bookings. ;)
Amazing captain, gave us fun tidbits about the crazy houses along the harbor, and showed us a great experience for my birthday boat ride! Even showed us a couple places where we could jump off into the water for an added memorable experience. Would absolutely recommend booking with him!!!
Sergio is great! Nice guy, friendly, and a pleasure to work with. He went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. One of the jet skis is larger than the other, but both are a ton of fun. He had good recommendations in the area and was patient with us. Great trip, definitely recommend.
