Catalina Express Ferry

Catalina Island Ferry: discount tickets.

Want to know where to get tickets for less on Round-Trip Ferry Transportation to Catalina Island? You have a choice of three options with the offers listed below. Catalina is a popular island getaway this time of year, and it’s just a short 22 miles off the SoCal coast, an hour ferry ride away. You’ll have plenty of time to shopping, relax on the beach, snorkel, kayak, golf, see the sights, play all day in the sun or work on your tan. Both my husband and I are California kids from way back, and this is one of our favorite ways to enjoy a day away from the city.

Both Catalina Island Ferry discount offers below are for high-speed ferries (catamarans), making the trip easy and fun. The Catalina Express promises a smooth, comfortable crossing with well-appointed interiors, sun decks, full bars, refreshments, and snacks.
