6 CATALINA EXPRESS MAGAZINE 2019–2020 Welcome Aboard IT IS MY PLEASURE TO WELCOME you aboard the Catalina Express. I was born and raised on Catalina Island, and I invite you to experience everything this unique destination has to offer. From scenic beauty to high-adventure activities, there is something for everyone here. From one converted fishing boat in 1981 to a fleet of eight modern, fast boats, we’ve come a long way. We now carry over a million passengers a year with up to 30 departures daily to Avalon and Two Harbors from San Pedro, Long Beach and Dana Point. On behalf of the Catalina Express staff and crew, I want to convey my appreciation for choosing to begin your journey with us. Have a great time on the Island and we look forward to seeing you on board again soon.
