Experience Santa Catalina Island’s “outback” in a comfortable, open air, H1 Hummer powered by biofuel. With spectacular views, wild habitats and educational displays, this is truly a unique tour.This tour ventures through scenic Middle Ranch Canyon and explores Cape Canyon in the heart of Catalina's interior. You’ll see the Middle Ranch habitats of the American Bald Eagle and Catalina Island Fox. Then it’s off to the scenic Little Harbor overlook on the windward side of the island for spectacular views. You'll travel to the Airport in the Sky, 1600 feet above sea level where you will enjoy a complimentary lunch and visit the Conservancy Nature Center’s educational displays.

We had an amazing time. Great food at the airport. Charles was our driver and was very knowledgeable about our surroundings and the wildlife and plants. Saw a bald eagle up close and some of the best views ever. Highly recommended

How "bumpy" is this tour? My father in law has a bad back, so I am wondering if this kind of off-road tour would be problematic for him?

Response from CatalinaSCICo | Property representative |
It is bumpy and goes on unpaved roads. We do not recommend to anyone with back problems.
