Pier
“Spending the night in Catalina (the lovely island off the coast) is a great idea, but we're so close to the boat that makes the channel crossing that you can easily take the first boat out in the morning and the last boat home in the evening. It's not expensive, there's a ton to do in Catalina, and you'll be out in the open ocean for about a half an hour each way. So fun!”
