The time allowed on the island was too short. We were only able to have lunch ado some shopping. There was no time for miniature golf or driving a golf cart. In addition, the parking situation is abysmal! We had to renew parking online every two hours! It was very disruptive and inconvenient.

Our only real dilemma was the parking around Catalina Flyer. When you are trying to get there on time, we had to drive around to find parking. Not very well marked. The ship was packed and seating was a bit difficult to get. People were friendly and the staff very kind. We were disappointed that we were unable to get a golf cart to further explore Catalina, but we had arrived after a large cruise ship arrived. But we really enjoyed walking around. However, I think you do need more than one day on Catalina. We missed a lot. After arriving, you really only have about 5 hours before you have to line up for boarding.

The ride was a bit more choppy than I expected. My friend got a bit seasick. But the crew was really great.

It was good- but having to line up hours before to be able to get a seat is a lot. They should allow selection at booking

Our crossing was very smooth - both ways. The crew was great. It seemed pricey - even adding additional fees for high gas prices.

Fun ride. Crew was great, especially in taking some time on the way back so that we could enjoy the dolphin pod that we came across.

It was hard to book on line, and with the service charges we weren't told about, the savings were minimal, about 15.00 dollars for the four of us. The young lady at the ticket window was very helpful, and the boat was fine, though it was very cold on the trip over. Catalina is a wonderful place and we will go back.
