CIVR Blog: What You Don't Need To Bring


Packing. For some of us, it’s a portentous first step of vacation fun. For others, it’s just one more chore to get done before the fun starts.  Whether you like packing or not, there are several things you can leave at home.

If your Catalina Island vacation plans include scuba diving, you can find plenty of equipment here. With two dive shops on Catalina, you can rent everything from masks to fins, so don’t worry about renting regulators, buoyancy compensators or wetsuits, as you’ll find it all here at affordable rates. Even if you have your own gear, leave the really heavy stuff at home. Dive tanks and weights can be rented here, so there’s no need to drag them onto the Catalina ferry.

Traveling to Catalina with a baby? Going anywhere with an infant – or a toddler — requires a copious amount of time, patience and stuff. Your Santa Catalina Island vacation however, doesn’t require nearly as much baby gear as you may think. You’ll find that you can rent high chairs, cribs and booster seats on the island, just ask your friendly Catalina Island Vacation Rentals Reservation Specialist for more information.

One of the many benefits in choosing a Catalina Island vacation rental for your Catalina accommodations is the full kitchen you’ll find in all of our Catalina properties. Cooking breakfast, lunch or dinner can be a fun way to make your vacation more affordable and personable. Luckily, you’ll find a relatively well-stocked grocery store that has everything you need to whip up a delicious meal or two, so don’t worry about bringing groceries to the island.
