The best way to explore Catalina's wildlands is by scheduling a naturalist guided custom open-air Catalina Island Conservancy Jeep® Eco Tour. On the tour you might see bald Eagles soaring high above, the shy Santa Catalina Island fox, and American bison. Not to mention the rare plants and archaeological sites. Come see Catalina's wild side for yourself!

Though pricey at $70/person, it was a very interesting and informative tour in an open jeep conducted by Charles, our tour guide and driver. We were lucky to see bisons along the way from the Airport in the Sky back to Avalon.
