We left the dock of Long Beach approximately 8am, headed to Catalina Island. The ocean was calm with a bit of hazy overcast in the air. We were one of the firsts ones in our group, on the Catalina Express. The boat ride was smooth, it only took us an hour to get to the island. Our plan… go directly to the golf cart rental place, only a few steps from the landing. Luckily we were the firsts ones there, no lines at all. We did a little research before deciding which golf cart company we wanted to go to. We chose Catalina Golf Cart Rentals because of their reviews; the cost amount (buy 2 hours for $100 cash and get one hour free), and they also offered a split in your time on the island.
Catalina Golf Cart Rentals gave us golf cart driving lessons, a map, some clues on how to use the map, and off we went to explore Catalina Island. It was a fun ride. Noisy yes, but fun for sure. In one area we got lost, but that was alright, it is always more fun to get a little lost and see things that are not on the map. In one of the areas we were supposed to turn left but we turned right. If someone would not have stopped us perhaps, we would have ended on a one-way road. We did not get that far to find out. We turned in the correct direction and off we went for some more exploration of the island. By the time we got back to the cart rental it was exactly half-time. The worker there was going to give us back some money, but when I explained to him that I wanted to do a split, he was happy to help. He told us what we could see while we went into town. We did a little shopping and eating in town.
In the afternoon, it was time to get a cart again and see some more of the island, we had left off in the morning. We went back to get a golf cart and found no lines to wait in. Right away we got into our new cart and drove away. We stopped at all the beautiful scenic places and took pictures and videos of the island. We even stopped by a big tree and listened to the birds singing to each other.
I could not imagine what kind of day we would have had without the golf cart. We highly recommend the Catalina Golf Cart Rentals. They were friendly, easy to work with and knowledgeable about the island. After we gave back our rental (2 minutes early), we headed back to the Catalina Express ticket office. I upgraded our boat ride by $15 each ticket. This gave us early entrance to the vessel and we got to go into the lounge area where they gave us complimentary drinks and a snack. We had a nice hour ride to Long Beach.
