The Catalina Express is one of two Catalina Island Ferry service providers. The only other Ferry service to Catalina Island is The Newport Flyer, but just remember that they only perform one roundtrip per day. The Catalina Express operates a variety of boats and provide multiple boarding locations. The various ticketing locations are found along California’s coast which include San Pedro, Long Beach, and Dana Point. The Catalina Express does have the tendency of selling out during our busy season. Therefore, any potential island visitor should plan on reserving a ticket from The Catalina Express website and/or call (310) 510-1212 to speak with a reservation specialist.
