Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your tour starts in Avalon, where you'll meet your driver-guide and hop aboard your Hummer. 

Set off along Pebbly Beach Road, taking in views of the rocky coastline, and start climbing up as you turn onto East End Road. The views continue to get better; if it's a clear day, you might be able to see San Clemente Island in the distance. Next, enjoy a view of Avalon Canyon, and head toward the summit overlook, passing by Wrigley Reservoir.

From the overlook, enjoy a photo op of the leeward side of Catalina Island, the San Pedro Channel, Avalon, and possibly even the mountains of mainland California on a good day. Then head back toward sea level as you drive past the eucalyptus trees of Stagecoach Road to reach Avalon, where your tour ends at the starting point.

Bear vs bison
, Oct 2020
Amazing tour and our guide, Bear made it so. Not only did we get to see a dozen or so bison, Bear was so fun and very informative throughout the excursion. I highly recommend this tour.

The bison!

The seats are really small! So if you are tall and bigger, it will be a challenge! Tour guide was amazing! I recommend this tour with aplomb.

Great RIDE the hummer vehicle is a trip and it came with blankets needed yesterday because it was deliciously cold! Great VIEWS yesterday the day following some rain made for stellar long-range gazing as well as short range animal views! Great FUN our driver Charlie was educational and so personable! Wonderful way to get to know this island in a more intimate way behind-the-scenes and from-up-above. :
