We were a group of 21 women and a token husband from a Simi Valley womens club. The hotel collected our lugagge at the pier. Our rate was combined with roundtrip Catalina Express. Parking there at Long Beach $15 for each day. It was $45 total parking. We were first greated by a Pod of Whales on the 1 hour boat ride. Rooms were very nice, with in room coffee, tea shampoos etc. Wonderful continental breakfast with several juices, bagels, croissants etc. We arrived by 11:30am and purchased our tickets at the hotel desk for the 2 hr 15 min Skyline Tour that started at 2:15 that same day. Wonderful tour. We even were able to see a lot of Buffalo. We were back by Happy 1/2 hour. Advise, if you want two glasses of wine, get your first, find a seat and go get your second right away. The first night a few in our group didn't hurry so they only got one. First night was a nice Gewurztraminer and a merlot. The second a Merlot and a Riesling. Each night was a different tiny slice of bread and little cheeses. Of course we all brought wine, snacks and pretty much monopolized the beautiful fire pit for two nights afterwards. Restaurants, everything close by and within walking distance. My friend and I took the Casino tour the next day for $18 Senior Rate and it was well worth it. 9 of our ladies ziplined the second morning. And had a wonderful time. 3 of them were stuck in the middle (one at a time) and had to be sent a sand bag. In Catalina all cars are a Golf Cart or a Autoette. Worlds smallest Fedex Truck. Our group has already decided to go back next year at the same hotel.
