My portfolio is now updated with a whole new section for Catalina Island pictures.
I hadn’t been to Catalina Island in a long time and decided it was time to take a trip to get in some photos. Catalina Island is a really popular day trip destination for the Southern California crowd. It’s like a mini tropical island but just off the coast of Southern California and one of my favorite places.
Catalina Island is definitely a unique place. It changed hands a bunch of times until the Wrigley chewing gum family took over in the early 1900’s and shaped it into what it is today. If you want to go there the most popular way is on a ferry like the Catalina Flyer in Newport Beach or Catalina Express which has service from Long Beach, San Pedro and Dana Point. You can also get there by helicopter, boat, and plans charters. There are very few cars on the island and there aren’t any available to rent. A lot of the cars are odd little mini-trucks I’ve never seen anywhere else. To get around you can rent golf carts, bicycles, or go on a vehicle tour.
