I visited Catalina Island only once before and would like to go again! I was thinking it may be fun to go as a group but that may be difficult to coordinate. I picked a random date in 2020 but figured we can try and go sometime in the new year and this date is just a placeholder. RSVP if you are interested in going to Catalina Island as a group!
We took the Catalina Express from Long Beach last time and I see they have a 9:50am ferry to Catalina and a 7:30pm back to Long Beach so we can plan to take the ferry at those times: https://www.catalinaexpress.com/
