Whether you are visiting the Island for the first time or just need to get away from the mainland for a brief respite, a day trip to Catalina provides an irresistible escape from the ordinary.
One of the most delicious Catalina day trip activities is a Taste of Catalina Food Tour. With visits to several restaurants, a tour guide well-versed in local history and culture as well as samples of both culinary creations and cocktails, food tours are one of the top attractions on Catalina. Avalon restaurants include a wide variety of options sure to please any palate and the Taste of Catalina Food Tour provides an ideal overview — tempting the taste buds at six Catalina dining establishments.
No matter the season, the Catalina ferry schedule provides plenty of time to experience a food tour on a daytrip to Catalina Island. Morning departures are available on Catalina Express ferries and Island Express helicopters every day of the year. Catalina Passenger Service, which operates the Newport to Catalina ferry, is available daily in the summer and on weekends through much of the rest of the year. After your Catalina tour, you’ll have time for a bit of sightseeing and shopping on your own before your return trip to the mainland.
