Land Adventures on Catalina Island
From breathtaking vistas to incredible wildlife, there is so much to explore in and around Santa Catalina Island. Our land adventures offer you a way to take in the beauty and rugged landscape of our incredible island oasis. Most land tours originate in Avalon from the Tour Plaza, located between Sumner and Catalina Avenues.
The Avalon Scenic Tour is a perfect introduction to Avalon if it’s your first time visiting the island. The Skyline Drive will take you along the scenic drive into Catalina’s protected wilderness, with a stop at the Airport in the Sky. The Inland Expedition takes you on a comprehensive 3.5 hour tour into the heart of Catalina's rugged interior. The East End Adventure offers an unforgettable trip to the summit, above Avalon, in our unique, open-air, biofuel H1 Hummer. The Cape Canyon Expedition, an extreme off-road adventure, takes visitors on a 4 hour trip into Santa Catalina Island’s rugged “outback” in an all-terrain, eco-friendly H1 Hummer. To experience the Island’s wildlife at night, take the Summit Night Adventure, a 1.5 hour trip to seek out buffalo, foxes, bats, and owls.
For thrill-seekers, we offer the Zip Line Eco Tour. Travel three quarters of a mile over five consecutive zip lines at heights of above the canyon floor at speeds pushing 45 mph. The Zip Line Eco Tour is available at Descanso Beach, along with our Rock Climbing Wall.
