Catalina Island is reopening. What you should know before visiting
Catalina Island, which took interim measures to reopen in May, is now making greater progress.
A spokeswoman said the company will also reopen its five campgrounds June 15. In mid-May, the company reopened its moorings to all boaters at Two ports and areas from White’s Landing to Emerald Bay.
In addition, the company opened cabanas and lounge chairs at Descanso Beach Club and palapas and restaurants at the Descanso Beach Club on Friday. Harbor Sands at Two Harbors and the outdoor bar at Harbor Reef Restaurant. The company had also planned to open its mini-golf course, but after further examination of the LA County pandemic health order, the spokeswoman said, management decided to wait instead.
the Catalina express, which had cut back to two round trips per day between Long Beach and Avalon (the island’s only town), pushed its schedule back to three trips per day on Tuesday, a representative said.
The Express is also restarting service from Dana Point, offering one trip per day in each direction. San Pedro service is expected to follow soon. (All passengers are required to wear a face mask over their nose and mouth.)
the Catalina Chamber of Commerce reported that many of the island’s parks, harbors and beaches are open with limited services, including sit-down service at some restaurants.
