***Hosted by BnB (Black-n-Burbank 20s - 30s). Let's start summer 2019 off with a bang!!! If you have yet to experience this, a day trip to Catalina Island is a must for anyone living in or visiting Los Angeles. Located just about 26 miles off the coast of Long Beach, this beautiful island is the perfect local getaway that everyone can enjoy because there are a million different activities that can be done on the island. We will have a set itinerary for meeting up as a group, with free time in between for people who want to go off and do their own activities. We will stay in communication using GroupMe, so please download the app and join the group using this link: https://groupme.com/join_group/49307585/7ybJhJlY To get started, you will want to purchase your round trip tickets for the Catalina Express. Please be sure to carefully read the "Travel Policy" on their website and make sure you understand it before purchasing your tickets. You can arrive anytime during the day and meetup with group members that are already on the island. I will be on the island early to ensure the itinerary is set and to do my amateur photography thing. I recommend reserving your ferry tickets as soon as possible as Saturday mornings sell out fast. Use this link to purchase your round trip tickets on the Catalina Express: https://ssl.catalinaexpress.com/ There is an itinerary below to help guide us throughout the day. You do not have to stick to the itinerary if you do not want to. You are free to come and go as you please. If you have any questions, please ask them in the GroupMe chat so that everyone attending is up to date with the discussion. I hope to see many of you on the island!!! ***Here are a few links to some cool activities to do during free time: Golf cart rental: This is the best way to explore the ins and outs of the island. http://www.catalinaislandgolfcart.com/ Ocean Tours: Glass bottom boat voyage & Undersea Tour https://catalinaadventuretours.com/ Zip Line Eco Tour: https://www.visitcatalinaisland.com/things-to-do/land-tours/zip-line-tours/ For many other activities to check out, visit: https://www.visitcatalinaisland.com ***Itinerary: Arrival/Free Time: 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM (This will be a great time to take lots of photos and grab some souvenirs) Brunch: 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM (Pancake Cottage or Original Jack's Country Kitchen) Free Time: 12:30 PM - 03:30 PM (There is a beach party from 1 - 5 PM at Descanso Beach Club) Lunch: 03:30 PM - 05:30 PM (Avalon Grille or El Galleon) Free Time: 05:30 PM - 07:30 PM Dinner/Departure: 07:30 PM - 09:00 PM
