"Planning the trip" Santa Catalina Island Favorite Tip by iam1wthee

Santa Catalina Island General: 24 reviews and 24 photos

Favorite thing: If I had to do it again, which I will, I would stay overnight on this island as opposed to going back to the hotel on the mainland. There is a lot to see and do for nature lovers of both land and sea. From the airport go here first and stay maybe 2 days then go to the mainland.

For those of you who do not heed my advice please note that there are more sailings to the island on Saturdays and Sundays from and to Long Beach. You want to arrive very early in order to take advantage most of the tours and other activities that are there. Please note that the earliest boat from the mainland to the island my not reach on time for you to make your trip.
