Pre-CIMI Information

On Monday, March 13, 2017, Eastshore's sixth grade students will journey to the Catalina Island Marine Institute (CIMI) at Toyon Bay on Catalina Island.  Do you want to know what your child is doing and learning?  Then look at this site as blogs will be posted throughout each day.  We're all looking forward to a wonderful learning experience.  We have dial-up internet on the island, so posts may be slow.

We depart on Monday, March 13, 2017, from Catalina Passenger Service at the Balboa Pavilion, 400 Main Street, Balboa, California 92661. Students must arrive by 7:45 a.m. and the boat leaves at 9:00 a.m.

Balboa Pavilion
400 Main Street
Balboa, California  92661

          Take 405 freeway north toward Long Beach.  Exit on the 55 freeway toward Newport Beach.  The freeway becomes Newport Boulevard.  Newport Boulevard merges with Balboa Boulevard.  Continue on Balboa Boulevard.  Turn left on Main.  Main dead-ends into the Balboa Pavilion.  The Catalina Passenger Service is located on the boardwalk next to the fun zone and ferry.  There is ample parking if a right is made on Main Street.  Parents have been towed for parking in lots posted “for customers only” as well as ticketed for not paying the parking meter.
          The second way to get to Balboa is to take Jamboree to Balboa Island.  The street will change to Marine once you are on the island.  Turn left on Park and then turn left on Agate.  Take the ferry across the bay.  We meet next to where the ferry arrives, so you might want to park on Balboa Island and walk on the ferry.

See the Power Point posted on each teacher's Cavas page that shows where to meet on Monday morning.
