KAYAK / ELECTRIC BIKE – Package 107
Your package includes cross channel transportation from Long Beach to Avalon aboard Catalina Express. Once on the island, you will check in with Catalina Tours Bike Center to pick up your electric bike for the day. Our bikes have an electric motor to aid you on our flat and hilly terrain. You will glide over the road in Catalina style. After all, you are on vacation, why not enjoy the ride. Our electric bikes are fun to ride on and they will thrill you no matter where you ride. Our friendly staff will give you full instruction and a map of the area so you can enjoy every minute of your day. Add a child/pet/gear trailer, child seat or bike mounted stereo speakers below to customize your bike rental. Stereo speakers plug into your smart phone, iPod or Mp3 player. Our bikes can not go into the interior of the Island.
After lunch you can ride your bike to Descanso Beach for your kayak adventure to Frog Rock. Your two hour tour begins next to beautiful Descanso Beach. Here, your qualified instructor/guide will fit you with a Coast Guard approved paddle vest and teach you the basic techniques for paddling your ocean-going kayak. No experience is necessary, as these sit-on-top kayaks for two are fun, stable and easy to maneuver.
As you glide above giant kelp forests and numerous varieties of fish, your guide will also point out interesting landmarks, birds and plant life. There’s always something wild to see… a Harbor Seal may peek at you from the offshore rocks; a Bald Eagle may snag a fish from the water nearby. A scenic 40-minute paddle with interpretive rest stops will bring you to Frog Rock Beach and an opportunity to land and stretch your legs or take a quick swim in the cool sea. You’ll also enjoy an energy snack and bottled water before starting the leisurely paddle back to Descanso Beach. At the conclusion of the tour, your hosts will present you with a souvenir certificate to commemorate your Catalina Kayak Expedition. Adventure, natural history, fun and light exercise – a perfect combination.
When you return, it’s back on your bikes for the remainder of the day to explore, shop or have dinner before returning your bikes and checking in with the Catalina Express.
You can also upgrade your Catalina Express tickets to Commodores Lounge, which is the first class section on their boats. You will receive pre boarding, reclining leather trimmed seats, snack and a cocktail or drink. Why not cruise to the Island and back first class!
This package also includes discount coupons valid at Avalon’s best restaurants, shops, boutiques and walking tours.
Package Available: Year around, weather permitting.

Dress comfortable for the time of year you are visiting for the electric bike rental. During the summer wear your bathing suit under shorts and a shirt for kayaking. In winter they will provide water resistent windbreakers and pants. Be aware that you can get soaked on the Kayak tour, so you might want to bring a dry change of clothes with you, just in case.
