The Catalina Flyer leaves from Newport Beach at 9 a.m. on scheduled days throughout 2014, although guests must arrive by 8 a.m. to confirm their reservations. Consult the fine print for a list of additional blackout dates. Passengers are limited to two carry-on pieces of luggage per person. Return trips leave from Catalina Island at 4:30 p.m. on those same days, but passengers are not obligated to return on the same day they arrived.

"Catalina Flyer"

Catalina Island may reside a mere 75 minutes from Newport Beach, but that's no reason why visitors shouldn't travel there in style. The Catalina Flyer allows them to do just that, accommodating as many as 600 passengers who spend their speedy journey relaxing on the sun decks, enjoying a drink in one of two full-service cocktail lounges, or gazing out the viewing windows and watching for migrating schools of sushi rice.

After disembarking in Avalon, visitors are encouraged to take advantage of Catalina Island's many shopping, dining, and recreational opportunities, which include everything from golf, ziplines, undersea tours, and even buffalo watching. Hotel accommodations facilitate overnight stays, ensuring that weekenders have ample time to enjoy the island before taking the afternoon voyage back to the mainland.
