While temperatures are gradually dropping elsewhere in the country, the Southern California weather is still sunny and warm in the fall. Therefore, it may be the perfect opportunity for you to seek out the island paradise of Catalina. Because this is an experience that should be shared with those closest to you, a yacht dinner cruise San Diego with family and friends is the perfect way to make it even more memorable.
What Can You Do on Catalina Island?
Catalina is located just 22 miles off the coast of Southern California, but in some respects, it is worlds away. A visit to the island allows you to relax and slow down the pace. There are many outdoor activities available, including golf, scuba diving or snorkeling, camping, mountain biking, and kayaking. If you’re up to the challenge of backpacking, you can hike across the entirety of the island from east to west on the Trans-Catalina Trail. Other natural attractions on Catalina include the Nature Center at Avalon Canyon and the Wrigley Memorial and Botanic Garden.
On the other hand, not all the attractions on Catalina Island are natural. The Catalina Casino was built in 1929 by chewing gum magnate William Wrigley Jr. and continues to be one of the island’s most iconic features. Beautifully restored and exemplifying Catalina’s beauty and style, the Casino plays host to many events throughout the year, runs first-run movies in the original movie theater, and can be toured by those interested in its glorious history.
What Can You Do on the Way Over?
When you travel to Catalina, the journey may not be more important than the destination, but it can be at least as much fun. When you charter a yacht, you have the opportunity to see scenic ocean vistas, spectacular sunsets, and perhaps even migrating whales or sea lions along the docks.
Take the experience even further by booking a party cruise San Diego. You and your family and friends can feel like the elite as you are served a catered dinner or cocktails by professional staff on a private yacht. A party cruise is a great way to celebrate a specific occasion, such as a birthday, wedding anniversary, or rehearsal dinner. On the other hand, getting together with loved ones is reason enough to celebrate; you don’t need a special occasion.
From hors d’oeuvres to dessert, you can enjoy an entire meal on your chartered yacht cruise. On the other hand, if you’d prefer dining at a Catalina restaurant upon your arrival, enjoy the best of both worlds. Book a cocktail cruise to the island and then have dinner at a restaurant once you get there.
Why Is Fall a Good Time To Visit?
Summer is the peak season for tourists in Catalina. If you wait to visit until the fall, you can continue to enjoy the nice weather, with temperatures perhaps a little milder than the scorching summer highs, and when you get there, you won’t have to deal with the crowds. Book your yacht charter San Diego today and enjoy your fall excursion to Catalina Island.
