Transportation To and From Catalina Sea Camp
Catalina Sea Camp staff will escort campers to and from Catalina Island aboard a large boat (700-passenger) leaving from the Queen Mary Terminal in Long Beach. Campers prone to seasickness should take anti-motion sickness medication. The fee for transportation to and from Catalina Sea Camp is included in the tuition. Due to the location of the dock, you may have to pay for parking. If there are changes or emergencies that will affect camper pick-up or drop-off time or location, you will be notified by email, phone blast, and text.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, Catalina Sea Camp will not be providing transportation from and to the Los Angeles International Airport. Travel guidelines will likely change before summer and it is difficult to predict what restrictions will be in place. We are currently asking that all campers arrive by private transportation.
Report to the Queen Mary Terminal to check-in at the Catalina Sea Camp staging area.
Drop-off timing will be staggered as we will be operating a “drive-thru drop-off”. The schedule will be as such.
Last Names Beginning with A-F – Drop off between 11:00 AM-12:00 PM
Last Names Beginning with G-L – Drop off between 12:00 PM-1:00 PM
Last Names Beginning with M-Z – Drop off between 1:00 PM-2:00 PM
The boat will depart at approximately 2:30 p.m. LUNCHES ON THE DAY OF DEPARTURE ARE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF EACH FAMILY. Campers should have eaten lunch before they get on the boat. The snack bar on the boat will not be operational due to COVID regulations. Campers must keep their masks on during the entire crossing.
A map has been provided for you with directions to the terminal in Long Beach (see Parent Guide). Sea Camp staff will be stationed at various locations in the parking lot to help direct you. For your safety, please heed all signs, follow directions and instructions of staff.

Campers should arrive from camp at the Queen Mary terminal at approximately 12:00 p.m. Please make arrangements to pick your child up at the terminal at the appropriate time. Please bear in mind that the boats are not always on schedule, and we request your patience should they run late. Any camper not picked up within 1 hour of arrival in Long Beach will be charged a late fee of $50.00 per hour. This charge must be paid upon pickup of camper.
