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.
Take a journey through the rugged interior of the island
As you venture ten miles into the rugged interior, you will view the protected side of Catalina Island seldom seen by most visitors. Have the chance to encounter wildlife such as bison, deer, bald eagles, ravens, or even the Catalina Island fox.
There is a photo opportunity around every turn as we climb to the Airport-in-the-Sky. At this stop, visit the Nature Center and peer down at one of Catalina’s original Native American gathering sites. The fee to the Catalina Island Conservancy directly supports the preservation of the animals, endangered species, and endemic plants on Catalina Island.
Tours leave from The Cabrillo Mole.
