Catalina Island is just an hour away aboard our fast and sleek boats out of Long Beach, San Pedro and Dana Point. We are committed to offering the most advanced, state-of-the-art watercraft available while maintaining a high level of dedication to...more

There is a parking garage for Catalina island visitors. Fee I am not sure . But you will find it hassle free for sure. Make sure you have some time before your Catalina express ride, last minute hurry is not advisable.
