Long Beach Cruise Terminal

Long Beach, CA

The Basics

Long Beach is a destination in and of itself. Sunbathe or surf at Hermosa or Huntington Beach; secure time-saving skip-the-line entry to the Aquarium of the Pacific; or head out on a whale-watching boat ride, bird’s-eye view helicopter flightseeing experience, or immersive sailing lesson. For those with more time in the area, day trips to nearby San Diego, downtown LA, Anaheim, or Orange County are convenient ways to explore and sometimes include port pickup and drop-off.

Parasailing was a blast! It was also great to be able to walk the length of the island easily. I wish there were general seating indoors as well as outdoors.

Catalina Express Round-Trip Ferry Service: Long Beach or San Pedro to Avalon
It was three seniors all 75 years young and the first time on the island we had fun though like little kids. We paid for a tour, but I don’t know if we got what we paid for. We did get a tour on a tour bus, Thank’s to a lady named Dede, who really helped us, because it was our first time on the island. But overall we had fun and I will suggest the Island to everyone I speak to. The people were very friendly and helpful, young and old. So thank you very much

The most memorable part of the trip was the ride from Long Beach, California to Catalina, Island. Seeing the ships waiting to dock and looking at various scenery including San Pedro was fun and very memorable.
