Getting Here

All of our excursions depart from and return to the main (“Green Pier”) in Avalon (on Catalina Island) unless otherwise arranged ahead of time. Our boat will be docked wherever there is space along the outer part of the pier. We will provide you the captain’s phone number so you can coordinate and know the exact location if you don’t see the BarcoIris when you arrive.

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.
