The USC Wrigley Institute offers transportation, Monday through Friday, from the mainland to the USC Wrigley Marine Science Center on Catalina Island. This service is available to those engaged in classes and research projects. Occasionally, due to repairs, maintenance and scheduled inspections, USC's boat is unavailable. Under such circumstances, passengers are asked to seek alternate arrangements through commercial carriers (see our transportation page).
Reservations must be made by 3:00 p.m. the day prior to travel. To arrange for transportation on the USC boat, please send a message by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org or call the main office at the Wrigley Marine Science Center at (310) 510-0811.
For last minute cancellations or questions regarding boat transportation, call/text the Miss Christi at (213) 700-4508.
