Long Beach shuttle buses transport passengers to and from cruise ports and hotel accommodations. The large buses run to and from the aquarium, the popular Queen Mary, and scenic Long Beach. They also provide transit to several others of the area’s most prominent tourist attractions.
In addition to bus services, Long Beach also provides a catamaran that accommodates a large group of people and transports them from Downtown Long Beach and Alamitos Bay Landing. This is just another small convenience that the Island has to offer. For a small fee, individuals can choose to board water taxis or Aqua Buses during the warmer months.
