Avalon Taxi Service

Demand-Response Taxis on Catalina Island

Our taxis meet every boat when they dock at the boat terminal. If you need transportation outside of the City of Avalon, you must make a reservation in advance. At the top of the boat terminal you will see our yellow sign for Taxi. If one is not there when you arrive, please call our taxi dispatcher at (310) 510-0025 and another taxi will be dispatched to you. If you are arriving via helicopter, please notify the terminal personnel and they will summon a taxi for you. Taxi hours vary by season. Our taxi service is for the City of Avalon. However, we do offer private shuttles for a variety of locations on the island. For transportation to locations outside of Avalon, please visit our page on private interior shuttles and make your reservation today.
