Catalina Express was founded in July 1981 by Doug Bombard, his son Greg Bombard, and Tom Rutter; they started the first year with a 56-foot 60-passenger monohull vessel.
In 1989 the company went from a single port location to two locations, one in San Pedro and one in Redondo Beach, which was redrawn three years later.
In the 1990s the company acquired their first catamarans and built additional customized monohulls, Avalon Express, Catalina Express, and Islander Express, which are all in service today.
In the summer of 1998, the express added a port location in Dana Point, and in early 2000 the company completed the current route network with an additional location in Downtown Long Beach.
