As all good things, they will come to an end, on December 31st, 2017.
On what started as celebrating Catalina Express' 30th anniversary, back in 2012. It was a good, long six-years ride on celebrating your birthday on Catalina Island with freebies and discounts.
So all you Libras, Scorpios, Sagittariuses, and early December Capricorns, you all better enjoy the free Catalina Express ride on your birthday. It's a fun, thrilling, yet relaxing boat ride from Long Beach Harbor to Catalina, feeling the salt sea air breezing through their hair. Enjoying a game of cards, while sipping on mini champagne bottles. It's California hospitality as its best.
Come to the Lobster Trap https://www.catalinalobstertrap.com/ for the freshest seafood, can't help it. Their seafood was caught that morning. For real Catalina treat and for your next holiday dish to impress, feast on their Catalina Local Lobster stuffed with creamy bay shrimp stuffing or try something healthy and fancy, as such their From the Sea entrée. You pick the fish then you pick the topping. This Pescatarian always choose the crisp macadamia nut bread topping over bass. Oh, how this scrumptious scribe will miss you on her birthday.
Greg Bombard, President/CEO, says, “Catalina Express wishes to thank its more than 45 island partners who participated in the Birthday Island program over the past six years, offering discounts, perks and value-added products and services for birthday celebrants. This program made visitors’ special day on the island even more meaningful with other visitors, residents and business owners wishing them a happy day.
“We launched the program not only to celebrate our 30th anniversary, but to provide an incentive for visitors to get a ‘taste’ of the new Catalina, which has grown and evolved with the opening of new attractions, restaurants, culture and entertainment.”
After 2018, keep your eyes out for new promotions and contests from Catalina Express.
