You are probably already familiar with the free birthday rides offered by the Catalina Express to Catalina Island. Some 350,000 people have ridden to the island for free on their birthdays since the program began in 2011, but this year the deal is being tweaked to encourage passengers to bring a friend.
Last week the Catalina Express announced the inception of the ‘Share Your Birthday Ride Promotion‘ whereby any passenger booking a departing trip on the day of their birthday will be able to bring a friend free of charge. Simply put, it’s two for the price of one.
With a general seating fare costing $36.75, any birthday passenger buying two adult ride tickets would save $73.50 on the round trip. The offer is valid for departures/returns from all of Catalina Express’ mainland or island ports, and a return trip must be completed within 30 days.
