Attraction details
Owner description: The ONLY adventure that takes you around the rugged west end and the back side of the Island. Experience the Island from both the land and sea. Half of the group will travel to scenic Two Harbors by RIB boat and half by biofuel H1 Hummer. After enjoying lunch at the West End Galley, travelers will switch vehicles for the return journey. Now you can experience the rugged interior and beautiful Catalina coastline all on one exciting expedtion.

cool little trip, not many fish varieties, but still cool, especially for kids. We got a good discount 58 bucks for 5 people. it is a 30 minute ride. I mean you need to be prepare to fork out cash to stay on this island, especially with kids.

“Alot of money for something that really has little to offer”
Reviewed 23 July 2012

If you compare the hourly cost of these tours you'll understand how expensive Catalina can be and obviously a bit of a tourist trap. Note the island beyond Avalon is basically a desert, brown, dead and dusty. Wildlife? What a joke you may see a few Buffalo but all the goats and pigs have been removed from the island. Deer, foxes and other wildlife is rare. You'll basically be driving around on dusty dirt roads passing other tour operators seeing brown grass, fences and poles. You're best sticking to the shore and ocean along the coast line.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 19 June 2012

We went on the Ultimate Land/Sea Adventure and had a great experience. We enjoyed both the boat ride and Hummer adventure. We were able to see a large pod of dolphins, bald eagles and their nests, sea lions, bison, and foxes. The views from the both the water tour and from above on the land tour were spectacular. We got some great photos. The guides were fantastic. They were very knowledgeable and entertaining. They made the tour so enjoyable.

“Best Way To See Everything On Catalina”
Reviewed 1 June 2012

This truely is the best way to see the island! First, you go on a thrilling two hour ride on a very fast rib craft boat that takes you to parts of the island that are rarely seen.You stop in certain coves/boat in camp sites and get the history of the coves. When going from cove to cove, you get to do a little wake jumping on the boat. It was awesome... almost as awesome as the dolphins that where splashing around with us. After the boat ride, you get lunch (included in the price) in the only restaurant in Two Harbors. The seared ahi tuna salad was amazing. After lunch you head back to Avalon on a hummer that takes you on a 2 hour narrated tour through the interior. It's the best way to see what makes Catalina special. It's a 5-5 1/2 hour tour, but you get to see everything. Truely amazing!
