How to Get Here

Most people come to Catalina aboard Catalina Express, Catalina Flyer or IEX Helicopters. Some fly private planes into Catalina’s Airport in the Sky, while others come by private boat and receive a mooring assignment via the Avalon Harbor Department. The choice is yours.

What to Wear

While we encourage everyone to find their own island rhythm and style at the Catalina Wine Mixer, keep in mind that it’s a sunny beach setting with warm sand and soft grass, so cool casual clothing and flat comfortable shoes are recommended. If you want to take a dip in the crystal blue waters of Descanso Cove, you’ll need a swimsuit. Kayaks and snorkel gear are also available for rent. Don’t forget the shades and sunscreen.
