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 Avalon Canyon Trail Tour takes you on an open-air biofuel H1 Hummer for a 50-minute narrated tour that offers a historical perspective of Avalon Canyon and rarely seen views of Avalon Harbor and iconic Casino. The Avalon Harbor Lights Tour takes you on an open air biofuel Hummer east along the waterfront past Lover’s Cove before heading up to Mt. Ada for spectacular views of the twinkling city and harbor lights below.
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. And the new Catalina Aerial Adventure offers five self-guided, self-paced courses—each made up of rope ladders, log bridges, balance beams, zip lines and other challenging elements. The Zip Line Eco Tour & Catalina Aerial Adventure are available at Descanso Beach, along with our Rock Climbing Wall.
