Don’t miss out on birthday island

Are you hoping your next birthday will consist of a little more than a few cards and some well wishes on Facebook? As you may know, your favorite Southern California Island destination has been helping vacationers celebrate their birthdays in grand style.

For the last several years, Catalina Island has been “birthday island;” thanks to a promotion driven by Catalina Express. The Catalina ferry offers free rides on your birthday – provided you register in advance on their website. In addition to the free ride, you’ll also get a ribbon telling the world that it’s your special day. That ribbon will be the source of birthday wishes from shopkeepers, restaurant servers, tour guides, bartenders, deck hands and random strangers all day long. Even better, you’ll find a wealth of wonderful special offers, upgrades and freebies from island businesses.

Catalina Island Vacation Rentals has its own special offer, which includes 10 percent off two nights or more and a bottle of bubbly, making it the perfect reservation to make in order to explore all that Birthday Island has to offer.

That popular promotion is coming to an end, so make sure and take advantage of all the fun – the promotion will conclude on December 31, 2014.  Note that registration will open March 1st for birthdays after April 30th. Plan now to spend a little time on Santa Catalina Island and rather than just a few “Happy Birthdays” from your Facebook posse, you’ll be posting an album of getaway photos.
