Island Express Helicopters

1175 Queens Highway South, Long Beach



If your stomach is prone to queasiness, the only good way to reach Catalina Island is on a quick 15-minute helicopter ride. Located just across the street from the "scary ferry" (offering two-hour rides with hundreds of others on choppy seas) dock in Long Beach, the copter port for Island Express Helicopters beckons. Approximately $136 per person round-trip, and reserved seating is available from 8 a.m. to sunset daily. Visit the website for information on hotel/helicopter packages.
