Catalina Island Tour, Activities & Adventures

Visiting Catalina Island is an adventure to remember. The island is a vast playground to explore and experience. You’ll be enchanted by the beautiful and breathtaking vistas. There are so many things to do around the island that you’ll find yourself coming back for more.

We offer land and ocean adventures in both Avalon and Two Harbors, and chances to explore all of the areas in between. From the Zip Line Eco Tour, to the Skyline Drive Tour, to the Avalon Scenic Tour, you can see all of the island on one of our land adventures.  If you prefer the sparkling ocean, we offer a number of water adventures including Ocean Runner Dolphin Tour, Flying Fish Boat Tours (seasonal) and the Glass Bottom Boat Voyage to name a few. Our newest offering, the Catalina Falconry Experience, gives guests the opportunity “ to be a falconer!” Get up close to nature’s swiftest predator and take a lesson on how to hold and call a hawk to the glove.

If you’d rather explore on your own, we offer exceptional hiking and biking trails, 18-holes of golf, miniature golf, disc golf, equipment rentals, opportunities for diving, snorkeling, kayaking and stand up paddle boarding. SCUBA diving in Catalina is unparalleled in Southern California. Let’s not forget about the beach! Descanso Beach Club, with it’s crystal clear water, offers a private sandy beach, cabana rentals and massages by the sea.

Take in a first run movie at the iconic Catalina Casino or take a behind the scenes tour of this historic gem. The possibilities are endless.

Whatever activities and adventures you choose to enjoy on Catalina Island, we hope it’s a memorable experience.
