Leap day is coming up at the end of the month, and Santa Catalina Island is hoping to see you on that "extra day" in 2016.
Feb. 16, 11:30 a.m.: The Leap Over to Catalina package sold out on Monday; it's no longer available.
To win you over, the Santa Catalina Island Co., which oversees tourism as well as lodgings and transportation on the island, has put together a string of discounts just for Feb. 29.
Here's what $29 per person will get you at the island's seaside town of Avalon:
— a room at the Hotel Atwater,
— a round-trip boat ticket,
--a three-course dinner at Avalon Grille.
The savings are great on this offer. But the trick is taking Monday off (prices are good only on Feb. 29).
As a price comparison, boat tickets alone usually run about $74, and the best available rate at Hotel Atwater would cost $111 a night on leap day.
Here's how you can get this deal:
Register for free online anytime before Sunday.
On Monday, you'll receive a promotion code via email that allows you to book the $29 specials. Follow the instructions and book through the Santa Catalina Island Co. website.
