Traveling to Catalina Island

Runners may travel to Catalina via the Catalina Express or by a Catalina helicopter service. With up to 30 trips a day, the Catalina Express offers year round service to Catalina Island from ports at San Pedro, Long Beach, and Dana Point.

If you are bringing a bike over with you on the Catalina Express, you will need to make a reservation for your bike too! Please make your reservations ahead of time, as there is limited space on the boat.


There will be a mandatory course talk that all participants MUST attend in order to pick-up their packet. NO EXCEPTIONS! With so many athletes competing, we need to make sure every athlete is made aware of safety procedures and protocol out on the course.

  • Did the Sprint Triathlon in 2018

    Loved it! I will definitely being doing it again this year. The bike killed me, but I plan to train harder on that. Unfortunately, my goggles broke right before the swim so I had to do backstroke. I will hopefully have better results next time.
