Catalina Island Explorer is a comprehensive online Catalina Island Guide providing information about tours, accommodations, restaurants, boat rentals, diving, sailing, camping, activities, nightlife, and all Catalina Island attractions.

Created by a small group of us who are regular visitors to the island, working together with local Catalina Island businesses. Our goal is to bring you the best, most up to date information, special offers, and money saving deals! We love the island as much as anyone, and we’ve spent literally thousands of hours researching the best ways to visit the island, interviewing local businesses, and traveling and taking photos by land, sea and air.

Catalina Island is truly a gem waiting to be discovered. The staff at Catalina Island Explorer are here to help you research your trip and plan in advance, so you can take advantage of all the island has to offer, at the best rates!
