Its one way to get to Catalina Island. No luxury, just a boat that ferries you back and forth. If you love boating, this may be your thing. I just wanted to get to Catalina.

The song is not exactly correct, it is not 26 miles to Catalina, but it is like a pleasant visit to Monte Carlo. You cannot take your car, so wear good shoes and it can be cool at times. An ocean adventure without the formal clothes for dinner.
