All of our excursions depart from and return to the main (“Green Pier”) in Avalon (on Catalina Island) unless otherwise arranged ahead of time. As you walk onto the pier, about three quarters of the way down, you will see signs for the floating docks “G” and “H” on the right, with ramps leading down to them. This is where we pick you up. Please stay up on the main pier until the captain greets you and tells you it’s time to come down to the boat.
We ask that you arrive 10 minutes prior to your departure time, and be ready to go, as these docks are for pick-up and drop-off only. If you arrive and don’t see our boat, don’t panic! Be patient; you may be early and our boat just hasn’t arrived yet, or we may be waiting for our turn to pull in.
You can easily arrange cross-channel transportation to Avalon from the Los Angeles area by contacting one of these three providers:
- Catalina Express (ferry service)
- Newport Flyer (ferry service)
- Island Express Helicopters (helicopter service)
When planning transportation to Avalon, remember to give yourself at least 10 minutes to walk from the ferry terminal, or take a cab from the helipad to the Green Pier.
