Catalina Island Meetings, Events and Group Gatherings

California’s Only Island Resort Meeting, Event & Group Destination
Just 22 Miles off the southern California Coast 

Catalina Island offers awe-inspiring beauty, convenience, and truly unique and extraordinary group and meeting locations. Combine this with an incredible array of on-and-off-water activities plus fresh air and star-filled nights and you get a memorable location. Located in Los Angeles County, Catalina Island is a scenic hour-long passenger ferry ride and a 15-minute helicopter flight from the mainland.

You’ll find 800 guest rooms within walking distance from one another, and one-of-a-kind meeting and event venues not found elsewhere including the largest contiguous ballroom in the country with 29,000 square feet of pillarless space for up to 1,400 attendees and an event lawn with a stage overlooking the ocean.  For smaller gatherings, there is a Mediterranean-style Country Club and an oceanfront beach house perfect for executive and board retreats. Catalina Island offers a variety of challenging and enjoyable group and team building activities including five self-guided, self-paced rope and adventure courses, escape rooms, scavenger hunts, food tours and inland tours all designed to engage your attendees and build camaraderie.  An abundance of pre-and-post meeting and event activities are also available, including scuba diving, ziplining, snorkeling, sport fishing, hiking, biking, parasailing, concerts, festivals and beach-lounging.

Add the selection of restaurants and bars catering to individuals and groups and you’ll see why your attendees will always have something to do and enjoy on Catalina Island.

Adventures, Activities & Things to Do

With so many fun things to do on Catalina, you'll want to plan ahead so your group can experience all that the island has to offer. Make your family reunion, corporate function, bachelorette party, or team building event a memorable excursion. It doesn’t matter if you are a group of 10 or 100, Catalina has something that everyone will enjoy.

Land on the island by either helicopter or boat and set off on a golf cart tour or rent some bikes and explore the island. Feeling adventurous? Strap in and ride our five separate zip lines with a starting drop of over 600 feet above sea level! The longest zip line is approximately 1,100 feet long and you will reach a cruising speed of up to 35 miles per hour.

After an experience like that your group is bound to bond. After your meeting, gather together to get your sea legs on the glass-bottom boat, or rent some jet skis and fly across the water. Make some memories together with your wedding party on a happy hour cruise or whale watching tour.
