$580 for two people. Don’t use this company. They will rip you off. Tours start late. You miss seeing half of what they advertise.

The price from LAX to Catalina is $1500. We do not go in to Avalon, we land at the 'Airport in the Sky' Catalina Airport. Please let me know if you have any further questions. Thank you!
