Perseid Meteor Shower Cruise!


Update! Friday evening will have clear skies! Get ready to learn the constellations and see some meteors streaking across the sky! The Delta Aquarid and Perseid Meteor Showers are now active! The cruise is with other groups and is now full. People who have not RSVP'd yet can go on a waiting list in case spots open up. The boat leaves at 9:00 pm, so try to arrive at the boat by about 8:30 pm to board. The parking lot is the same parking lot as The Queen Mary boat. Enter the Queen Mary parking lot and look for Catalina Classic Cruises. The boat is docked near the parking lot and is visible from the parking lot. The gates show a parking fee, but because we leave late, the gates are left open and the parking is free. The cost for the cruise is $70 per person, cash only, payable when boarding the boat. Please try to bring the exact amount. The temperatures will be comfortable, in the low 70’s, but you may want a sweat shirt or light coat since the air can be cooler on the water. You cannot bring alcohol on the boat but you can purchase beer, wine, and mixed drinks on the boat. You can bring some snacks on the boat. The boat also sells snacks like pretzels, candy, chips, etc. The boat only accepts cash for food and drink. Thank You!
