Catalina Island | Visit Catalina Island Catalina Island is an island located off the Southern California coast. The size of Catalina Island is approximately 22 miles long and 8 miles wide. William Wrigley, Junior was instrumental in the development of Catalina Island, he originally bought the island in 1919 and it was improved with the Casino, a hotel, and the Casino building which is still there,  however it is utilized as a movie theater. There is an airport at the top of the island, and many planes will fly in just for lunch and have a very popular Buffalo burger. And Buffalo do roam the island! Catalina Island is located 32 miles from Newport Beach, and the interesting thing is, there are many days when you don't see it at all due to the fog. The photo below was taken from the Newpo...

Pleasure Pier and Catalina Casino - A Great Combination - Speechless Sundays         Another gorgeous day on Catalina Island with the Green Pleasure Pier (isn't that a great name?) in the forefront and the Catalina Casino in the background.   I even got a little time in the beautiful blue water today while watching others play.

The Catalina Flyer is Off for Maintenance - However, the Catalina Adventure is Here    The Catalina Flyer leaves from Newport Beach and goes to Catalina Island for a wonderful day of adventure in Avalon.   It is temporarily off duty for maintenance.  However, I took the Catalina Adventure to Catalina today, and it was a lot of fun. It is significantly smaller than the Catalina Flyer and for now no bikes or coolers are allowed due to space restrictions.  For me, the joy of being out on the bow enjoying the wind and watching and actually feeling the waves, more than made up for the difference in size.   So, if you're planning on taking a trip to Catalina, you can still go from Newport Beach and enjoy the new, temporary catamarand.

Catalina Island Pelicans       I have been fortunate to live around the Pacific Ocean nearly my entire life and never tire of the beauty that is available at any time here.  This day, I was fortunate to capture a picture of two pelicans who apparently share my appreciation of the ocean.

Day Trips from Orange County - Catalina Island     Catalina Island is one of the eight islands that makes up the Channel Islands archipelao.g   Located 26.2 miles off the coast, Catalina Island is a great day trip.     You can jump on the boat in the morning.  Enjoy a day on the sand, shopping or in the interior of the island observing the wild life, and still be back in time for dinner.   It's very convenient to hop on the Catalina Flyer and take a quick 75 minute trip.  After enjoying the ocean, sea lions, dolphins and whales, you'll land at Avalon and have just a few minute walk into town.         Getting around Avalon, Catalina's main town.  Is easy.  It's a mile square, and everything is in easy walking distance.  This lovely little town feels like a small mediterranean village.   ...
