We went over from San Pedro. It was well run and we had a beautiful trip both ways. Really lucked out on the weather and the sunshine. It's a very fast trip and it is a smooth ride and the staff are nice.

We needed a quick trip to the Isthmus to meet some boating friends. The company is very well organized. Boarding and packing were excellent and the trip was smooth and uneventful. We spent about 15 minutes each on leaving LA harbor and our approach to the Isthmus. That left about 20-30 minutes in open water. We also went on the earliest morning trip. This is the calmest time of the day. We have gone several times with them and had excellent trips.

Can't go wrong taking the Catalina Express over to Catailna either for the day or a few days. Catalina is magical & to have this boat that makes a trip in the morning & end of day is a fantastic way to get over there.

The ride over and back to Catalina was very nice and enjoyable. All of the crew onboard were very nice. The checkin at Dana Point Marina was quick and easy. All the employees who helped with the checkin were super friendly. The boat ride was a little over an hour but didn’t seem to take a long time. Would definitely recommend! The Marina at Dana Point was also beautifully decorated for Christmas.
