Catalina Island Family Travel
Catalina is fun for the entire family. We have adventures and tours suitable for every age. We’ve put together a sample 3 day itinerary perfect for family travel.
Catch a ferry boat from Long Beach, San Pedro, Dana Point or Newport Beach to Avalon. Stay at the beautiful oceanfront Pavilion Hotel. Upon arriving in Avalon, you’ll be greeted by a hotel representative who will accompany you to the property and assist with your luggage.
Experience the Undersea Expedition, learn fascinating facts about the underwater gardens while viewing Catalina’s unique marine world from a semi-submersible vessel. When you return, parents can enjoy a complimentary afternoon wine & cheese pairing offered at the Pavilion Hotel, and the kids can enjoy some juice and cheese or play on the adjacent beach. Step next door to enjoy an early dinner at the family friendly Avalon Grille. Stroll along the waterfront towards the Casino on your way to catch a first fun movie at the famous Casino Theatre. End the night around the Pavilion Hotel’s Catalina Fire Ring before retiring to your room for a great night’s sleep.
Enjoy the Pavilion Hotel’s complimentary deluxe continental breakfast before setting out on the Scenic Avalon Tour, or rent a Golf Cart and explore Avalon on your own. Later, relax and take in all that Descanso Beach Club has to offer including oceanfront private cabanas, kayak and snorkeling equipment rentals, along with great food and drinks. You might also be interested in trying out our Zip Line Eco Tour or climbing Wall. (Minimum age for the Zip Line is 5 years old for tandem and 10 years old of solo) In the afternoon, it’s off on another adventure as you set off to spot dolphins on our exciting Ocean Runner Dolphin Tour. Dinner is at Avalon’s newest restaurant, the Bluewater Avalon, where you’ll relax and reflect on your day of adventures. After dinner, venture down the front street for a special ice cream treat.
Start the day off with our complimentary continental breakfast in one of the Pavilion Hotel’s courtyard lanais. Stop at the Catalina Island Museum and get a glimpse into Catalina’s unique history. Enjoy a casual game of miniature golf with the whole family at the Miniature Golf Gardens. Prior to lunch at the Avalon Grille, stop and shop along Avalon’s front street for special mementos of your island vacation. If traveling back on the ferry through Long Beach, make sure to stop at the Aquarium of the Pacific prior to heading home.
