How to Get Here
If you want to arrive to the Catalina Wine Mixer in true Step Brothers style, get a group of friends together, or invite that special someone for an exciting ride aboard IEX Helicopters. Or, you could come to Catalina aboard Catalina Express or Catalina Flyer. If you have a plane, you could fly into Catalina’s Airport in the Sky. If you have a boat, you could get a mooring through the Avalon Harbor Department.
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.
