Catalina Express Moves to New San Pedro Terminal

Press Release
Sunday, July 22, 2012

The only ferry service serving Santa Catalina Island from mainland USA ports shifts its San Pedro, California facility.

Cataline Express is moving to a new San Pedro passenger terminal close to the old one and it will be open for service in time for the summer season. The multi-million dollar project in cooperation with the Port of Los Angeles includes an upgrade of the adjacent passenger parking.

The terminal will retain its address of Berth 95, known as the Catalina Sea and Air Terminal.

Service by boat to Catalina originated from the Wilmington/San Pedro area in the 1800s. The current Berth 95 was built in 1966 and was originally the port for the Catalina Steamer. Most recently, as China Shipping expanded into the Berth 95 area, Catalina Express leased the land and building only 500 feet away to continue Catalina Express service.

Catalina Express’ fleet of eight boats will continue to rotate as needed between the ports of Long Beach Downtown Landing, San Pedro, and Dana Point, although San Pedro is the only port offering ferry service to Two Harbors,
