Long Beach Cruise Terminal

Long Beach, CA

The Basics

Long Beach is a destination in and of itself. Sunbathe or surf at Hermosa or Huntington Beach; secure time-saving skip-the-line entry to the Aquarium of the Pacific; or head out on a whale-watching boat ride, bird’s-eye view helicopter flightseeing experience, or immersive sailing lesson. For those with more time in the area, day trips to nearby San Diego, downtown LA, Anaheim, or Orange County are convenient ways to explore and sometimes include port pickup and drop-off.

Scheduling the trip through Viator was extremely easy and flawless. The boat rides to and from Catalina Island were on time. It was also a surprise that there were snacks and drinks of all kinds available for purchase on the boat rides! We had a great trip.
