125th Anniversary Tours
See and learn about iconic Avalon venues and attractions
Visitors have been enjoying Catalina’s scenic beauty since the 1890s, when the Catalina Island Company built Hogsback Road up to the ridge above Avalon and began taking guests on exciting horse-driven stagecoach rides into the island's interior.
To celebrate its 125th anniversary, Catalina Island Company is offering two exclusive narrated tours that visit many historic venues and explore Catalina’s early beginnings as California’s Island Escape™.
Guests who participate in either Wrigley's Catalina or Magnificent Mt Ada can show their ticket stub and receive $2 off admission at Catalina Island Museum, which is featuring a special exhibition that commemorates William Wrigley Jr. and the execution of his vision for Catalina Island - especially during his first year of ownership in 1919.
Enjoy scenic canyon and ocean views as you see and learn about many venues and attractions built by the Catalina Island Company and visited by millions over the years.
This tour takes you inside Catalina Country Club, originally the Cubs clubhouse and home to the Bobby Jones Trophy and a huge collection of sports memorabilia. You’ll also see and learn about:
- The site where Wrigley’s Chicago Cubs held Spring Training from 1921 to 1951
- Former Bird Park, a popular attraction that housed thousands of birds for 40 years
- Catalina Chimes Tower, which has chimed every 15 minutes since 1925
Magnificent Mt Ada
In addition to the sights included in Wrigley's Catalina, this tour takes you inside:
- Historic Avalon Theatre in the iconic Casino, one of the first theaters designed for “talkies”
- Mt Ada, the former Wrigley mansion and Avalon’s only Forbes Travel Guide 4-Star hotel
