Long Beach Cruise Terminal

Long Beach, CA

The Basics

Long Beach is a destination in and of itself. Sunbathe or surf at Hermosa or Huntington Beach; secure time-saving skip-the-line entry to the Aquarium of the Pacific; or head out on a whale-watching boat ride, bird’s-eye view helicopter flightseeing experience, or immersive sailing lesson. For those with more time in the area, day trips to nearby San Diego, downtown LA, Anaheim, or Orange County are convenient ways to explore and sometimes include port pickup and drop-off.

Catalina Express Round-Trip Ferry Service: Long Beach or San Pedro to Avalon
Everything went great. It was fun. On time and professional. Told use we needed to be there 90 minutes in advance. That was too early. Check was a little bit of a hassle to reserve space the day before.
