Traveling to Catalina Island

Runners may travel to Catalina via the Catalina Express or by a Catalina helicopter service. With up to 30 trips a day, the Catalina Express offers year round service to Catalina Island from ports at San Pedro, Long Beach, and Dana Point.

If you are bringing a bike over with you on the Catalina Express, you will need to make a reservation for your bike too! Please make your reservations ahead of time, as there is limited space on the boat.
