Buy your tickets from the Catalina Express directly, you have to call them to schedule after buying this anyway. We didn’t know that and ended up driving 2 hours to Long Beach for no reason as trip advisor doesn’t actually book your ferry. This is basically a gift voucher.

Definitely stand be a window on the trip over to Catalina. A lot of passengers were sea sick, so that wasn’t pleasant!

The staff is friendly and helpful and we had a pleasant experience. They have reduced the amount of passengers by 33% due to COVID, which is great, but on Thursdays, they only have one departure leaving Catalina at 5pm. We just wished they would have offered an earlier one as well.
