Being just 26 miles off the coast of Los Angeles, Santa Catalina Island is an ideal stop when you are visiting Southern California. It’s easy to get here from LAX, simply take a shuttle or taxi to the Downtown Catalina Landing Terminal in Long Beach. From Long Beach, you are just a short one hour ferry ride or 15 minute helicopter ride to Catalina Island. When you arrive on our Island, getting to our office is also easy. All that is left is to simply enjoy your stay.
