Catalina Island isn’t a destination; it’s a state of mind. And October is the perfect time to visit, with mild temperatures and long after the summer crowds are gone. Our annual escape to the island “26 miles across the sea” features three nights at the Pavilion Lodge, in the heart of Avalon, right on the harbor and within walking distance of countless shops and restaurants. Begin with a short flight to Southern California. Enjoy a tour and spectacular Sunday Brunch aboard the Queen Mary, moored in Long Beach Harbor. Travel aboard the high-speed Catalina Express ferry to the island. At your hotel, enjoy a wine reception each night and a continental breakfast each morning.

The itinerary includes several adventures on the island as well as plenty of free time to enjoy additional activities or time to relax on your own. Included in the package is a behind-the-scenes tour of Catalina’s famous ballroom and Casino Building. Catch a glimpse of the underwater world surrounding the island on board a semi-submersible vehicle. Additionally, view Avalon and its beautiful harbor from high above on the Inland Motor Tour; the tour follows the island’s original stagecoach route aboard a specially designed bus and visits the Native Plant Nursery, the Bald Eagle Habitat, the Airport in the Sky, and Conservancy Nature Center. A final night dinner is just steps from your hotel. A mid-morning return to the mainland by ferry allows you time for lunch in Long Beach at Parker’s Lighthouse prior to your late afternoon flight home.
