Cost: $875, make checks payable to: Joseph Paquet Studio, LLC.
Transportation, Meals and Hotel are the responsibility of each student.

Airline Tickets: I recommend an early morning flight to Orange County Airport (John Wayne) as you will need a shuttle and boat. Plan to arrive on Saturday or Sunday.
* Remember, you will need a plane, shuttle and boat, so apportion your time accordingly.

Shuttle and Boat to Catalina Island: You can save by getting both tickets through Karmel Shuttle 1.888.995.7433.

The shuttle takes approximately 1 hour to “The Landing” at Long Beach for the Catalina Express Boat. You must be there 1 hour prior to boat departure and off-season boat departures are reduced so call for schedule.
