Catalina Adventure Package

jeep4 SMALL

CATALINA ADVENTURE PACKAGE

 

3 Day / 2 Night Package

 

 

 

 

Okay!  You asked for an Adventure Package, well,  here it is!  If you want serious fun, this package delivers.  It is a three day, two night package.  We include cross channel transportation from the mainland, and our most adventurous tours.  After you check into your hotel, the rest of the day is open to just relax, do some shopping, and enjoy a nice dinner in town.  Continental Breakfast is included each morning at the hotel.

.

Your second day will start with a three hour Jeep tour (Tour 770) to the interior of the Island. This is no bus tour.  You will be going out with a naturalist from the Catalina Conservancy.  They are the folks who own the Island and are the ones who operate this tour.  You will be going with the best.  See the Airport in the Sky, Wrigley Ranch and vineyards, Two Harbors overlook, Middle Ranch, and Eagles’ Nest stage stop.  You may see Buffalo, Bald Eagles, Channel Island Fox, Ravens and much more during your tour.

.

Once back in town it will be time to board your parasail vessel (Tour 932 & 931)  and head out to sea to enjoy the beautiful scenery as you glide 600 feet above the water. You don’t get wet on this tour because you are gently lifted out of your seat and back into you seat.

.

On day three it’s your choice of a Half Day Electric Bike Rental (Tour 807) , complete with map, helmet, bottle of drinking water and a bike basket for your gear. Head off on your own to explore Avalon at your pace.  Our electric bikes ride just like a regular bike but have an electric motor to wisk you along the flat areas and do most of the work on the hills if you want them to.  If a bike ride is not for you, chose the Frog Rock Kayak trip (Tour 740).  Your guide will share their knowledge of the Island as you paddle down the coast to Frog Rock.  The tour will land at Frog Rock and take a relaxing break before heading back to Avalon.  You will also enjoy our kelp gardens and crystal clear water as you kayak along your route.  You may also encounter some of our Island wildlife.
