Not just an island. Another world.

Search Avalon California

No more than a short boat ride away from the mainland awaits an island paradise filled with beauty and charm and plenty of things to do. Explore the island's beautiful interior, take the kids on a glass-bottom boat ride, stay at one of the many beautiful hotels or inns, and dine at romantic restaurants.

While on the island enjoy many activities such as air tours, ocean tours, city and interior tours, bicycling, boating, fishing, golf, hiking, Jeep Eco-tours, kayaking, parasailing, sailing, SCUBA diving and snorkeling, shopping, day spas, tennis, and activities at the harbors.

There are many options to get to the island but if you would like to take the Catalina Express take the Long Beach Freeway (710) south. Follow all signs to the Queen Mary. Enter the Queen Mary parking lot and follow the blue line.
