Booking a trip to Catalina

What is the best way to book a trip to Catalina for a few days? Should I book hotel and boat seprately? Is there a site that does both for better rates?

I would look at both...

The first question, which location and boat company do you want to use...

The Catalina Flyer is based out of Newport Beach in Orange County.


The other company is the Catalina Express, has multiple ports, with Long Beach being its main port.


Both websites offer package deals...

Then I would look at Hotel only deals, and then add the boat fare, and decide.

Want to do the Flyer out of OC and I think the Pavilion for a hotel but have never been there so not really sure what hotel is best?

I just booked at the Pavillion Hotel for this April, and you should definitely look at a package deal at this hotel: includes boat transportation and activities in a price that is hard to beat! We are doing the unlimited plus package with tours, zipline and ferry service: a lot of bang for the buck!
