Feb weather

I am tagging along with hubby to a conference in Newport Beach and we plan to extend our trip with a few days over the weekend of February 11-13. Catalina looks like the perfect getaway, however, I am concerned about travel to and from the island during storms.

Your thoughts...

February can be stormy and it can be beautiful. Today is January 3rd and the temperature outside is in the lower 80's with flat, calm seas. The ferry will go over to the island unless the winds are up and the seas are very high. That happens on occasion but not as a rule. It is difficult to predict the weather in the winter months. The best ferry (IMO) is Catalina Express

out of Long Beach. It is closer to the island and takes less time on the water. There is a ferry out of Newport Beach but it will not run as often and will take longer to get to the island.
