The Santa Catalina Island Company offers two tours of the Catalina Casino: “Discover the Casino” and “Behind the Scenes”, at 40 minutes and 90 minutes respectively. The “Behind the Scenes” tour contains everything in, and builds upon, the “Discover the Casino” tour. If you have the time you’d be well-advised to take the full “Behind the Scenes” tour. Both tours access the Avalon Theatre and the Ballroom and its outdoor terrace, although all tours are subject to daily operations.
