Going to Catalina Island on the Catalina Express is a treat itself. The ride is smooth, you can enjoy the ocean and even see some sea animals.
What if I told you your experience can be even better? Yes, you heard that right. You ride towards the amazing Catalina Island can be great just for few extra bucks. Just for $15 per person (each way) you can get the commodore lounge upgrade. The upgrade includes the following:
The Commodore Lounge which is the VIP lounge on the Catalina Express!
It is still recommended that you get there at least an hour before departure. The Catalina Landing area has restaurants and bar, so you can enjoy some food and drinks while you wait for the boarding time. The cool thing with the Commodore Lounge Upgrade is that they have a designated line to board the boat. You board first with a short line. Then you head to the second floor to the private area for the Commodore Lounge ticket holders. You are greeted by the very friendly and helpful employees. They serve you, on your seat drinks and snacks. And for about one hour you get to relax on the very comfortable seats. Read, sleep, watch the ocean. Your choice. Just do it in style and comfort from the Commodore Lounge.
