A lot of kitschy stuff to buy on the main drag. However, if you choose to take an excursion...

About Catalina Island, California

Catalina Island is only 22 miles off the coast of Los Angeles, but it seems a world away. Stroll the quaint streets of Avalon and explore the adventurous village of Two Harbors. Hike past grazing buffalo and dive into crystal clear water brimming with life. You'll have a great time no matter what you choose to do.

I rented a golf cart in Catalina Island and we went off exploring following the map that was provided. Enjoyed it immensely. The Catalina Cantina...LOVED IT!

We rented a golf cart for $45! It was so cool to see all of Catalina Island on our own! If you want to go kayaking, get off the ship and you can rent kayaks for $15 an hour! Way cheaper then the excursion. Just a little tip;) Shops area was fun to walk around. We really liked Catalina Island.

Rented a golf cart and did a pre-planned 12-mile scenic route. BEST homemade ice cream at Scoops and great Fish & Chips at Avalon Seafood.

I love Catalina. We were married there. Rent a golf cart, go on a boat, go parasailing, there is so much to do. Just chill out and people watch, go to the Museum, or have a bite to eat. It is what you make of it! If you are bored then you are lazy and aren't trying!

We loved Catalina Island. We took a golf cart around the island, visited some shops, and ate a wonderful lunch.

I didn't do an excursion, but I enjoyed the ride on the tender boat, walked up Crescent Avenue, bought a Kahlua Espresso milkshake at Scoops, and sat on a bench overlooking the beach and just watched people swimming, relaxing, walking, and parasailing. So relaxing!

Liked the tender boats used to go to Catalina as they were roomy and comfortable. Did not buy an excursion but enjoyed walking around the town..
