Crusie. Music. Yoga. Run. Explore.
Hop on our big red 3-decker boat as we cruise to Catalina Island for a day of sunshine and adventure! Fuel up with coffee, refreshments & brunch bites on the Sea Deck.

Once on the island, find your zen with a 10-minute Mid Day Meditation & 45-minute Dj powered yoga class with Rebbeca Ryan @rebeccaryanfit. After a nice stretch, our run leader will pump you up, and blast you off on a quest through one of the most scenic trails southern California has to offer. Want to hike it? No problem, soak in the scenery – it will be sure to impress!
After the 5K, we chose our adventure:

What do I get with my ticket?
Your ticket to the Xanadu Catalina Island Adventure, guarantees you a wristband (given to you upon check-in & boarding the day of the event) for our Xanadu Cruise, yoga festivities, 5K island party, as well as access to all of our vendors, Xanadu stickers, give-a-ways, and sunset dance-off in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Pretty dope right?
What is the difference between a team and an individual?
Being alone ranks just below dying by buffalo. While there’s nothing wrong with running alone, splashing through the finish line with your friends seems a little more fun than splashing the fish.
Rally your friends, create a cool team name, dress up in your most festive matching island swag, and call it a day!
Can I volunteer?
This isn’t North Korea. Of course, you can. Just email us at Heidi@thexanadulife.com
