Taxi service is available from the Catalina Island ferry terminal, as well as the taxi stand, located on the corner of Crescent Avenue and Metropole Avenue, to all areas of Avalon.

The Catalina Island Company offers free shuttle transportation to Descanso Beach in the summer months, including a stop at the Catalina Casino, on a regular daily basis. The bus departs from the Via Casino arch at the beginning of Casino Way.

Shore boats are available in both Avalon and Two Harbors.
