Bring your next group out to Avalon where they can remember its colorful nostalgia while creating new memories.


As your boat docks in Avalon, your group will feel as though they are pulling into a small port in the Mediterranean.

To kick off their island adventure, take your group on the Discover Avalon Tour where guests can discover the enchantment of Avalon on this delightful journey along the beach front, up thehillsides and through the heart of this friendly and historic town. Learn about colorful local attractions, history and folklore. (Duration: 50 minutes. Call Catalina Express for group tour reservations.)

Now that guests have a better idea of where things are after their city tour, they can enjoy one of the many local restaurants within Avalon’s 1.5 square miles. If individuals are looking to maximize time exploring on their own, we recommend grabbing lunch at Antonio’s, which has quick and easy food to go.

Stroll along the palm tree-lined streets of Avalon and delight in unique discoveries like artisan jewelry, Catalina-inspired artwork and island themed souvenirs. Catalina is known for its original tile and offers distinctive gifts bound to please anyone. To satisfy your sweet tooth, stop by Lloyd’s of Avalon for mouth-watering saltwater taffy, fresh candy apples or ice cream.
