For years Catalina Island has received great media attention yet there has been many first time visitors to the island who live in nearby cities such as Long Beach and Anaheim. The retention of these clients that live within a 100 mile radius will be the key to ensuring continued growth in the upcoming years; however, utilizing access to the main global distribution systems will allow TourCatalina.com to create packages for customers all over the United States and even the world. By connecting air, helicopter, boat, rentals, tours, activities etc together, we can engage a much larger audience.”
