We enjoyed the boat ride to Catalina. We had “drink drinks” on the way to Catalina. It was a smooth ride and we saw dolphins. We went to Descanso Beach for sunshine and lunch. We avoided the morning crowd and rented golf carts at 2:30pm. We had just enough time to enjoy the island. Thanks!

I loved how covid-conscious the crew was and that they made people inside wear masks and were patient, but firm with the naysayers. I was a little nervous about leaving from Orange County since I'm from LA, but seeing the crew take masks seriously inside made me feel much more comfortable. GREAT price! Totally worth it!

Very nice trip. Boat was crowded but comfortable. Get there at least 45 minutes early unless you plan to sit in the top which can be cold and windy. Take a hat and jacket.

About The Catalina Flyer from Newport Beach

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.
