Special Luggage Information for divers, campers and group travelers

May 2011

Catalina Express announces an updated luggage policy.

 

Due to a number of back injuries to our employees, we have reduced the maximum allowable weight per piece of luggage.   Each individual piece of luggage is to be no more than 50 lbs.

 

Updated dimensions of the current fleet are allowing us to increase the allowable dimension to baggage.  These dimensions are 37” x 23” x 23”. The weight and dimensions have been determined to meet the size restrictions of all of the Catalina Express fleet which includes 4 monohull vessels that have conveyors for luggage storage.  The Catalina Express service from three ports on the mainland and its frequent schedule requires flexibility in the use of its fleet.  Thus, requirements in dimensions are universal. 

 

Catalina Express encourages passengers to pack for one trip on the ramp to the dock, if necessary passengers needing a second trip are asked to communicate with Express employee who will work to assist them.

 

The Following Articles May Be Carried On Board At Passenger’s Own Risk And Liability For Loss, Damage Or Theft. Space Available Only.
