Safari Island Adventure

An Outback Journey

Climb into an open air safari vehicle for a guided eco-expedition that takes you to the outback areas and coastal canyons of the Island Conservancy, home to wild animals like buffalo, Channel Island fox and bald eagles. In this 2.5 hour tour, you’ll journey up the tree lined “old stage coach road” from sea level to an elevation of 1604 feet. Featuring picturesque scenery, your bumpy transport makes it’s way through rugged terrain, venturing through Gallagher’s Cove and Toyon Bay, and coastline areas such as Goat Harbor, White’s Landing, and Rippers Cove (view the map here). The wild animals roam free which makes every sighting an exciting bonus. On clear days, enjoy the 360 degree panoramic views. Bring a camera!

The fee to the Catalina Island Conservancy directly supports the preservation of the animals, endangered species, and endemic plants on Catalina Island.

Bus tours leave from The Cabrillo Mole.
