Dear Island Lover,

Recent rainfalls have turned Catalina into the lush island paradise that dreams are made of. This spring is sure to blanket the Island's hills with colorful wildflowers that reach as far as the eye can see.  In addition, scheduled to open this spring are Catalina's newest eco-adventure activities. Introducing the new Zip Line Eco Tour and Sea Trek Undersea Adventure. You'll have an experience of a lifetime visiting Catalina Island in Spring of 2010!


Sea Trek

Experiencing the magical wonders of the undersea world has never been easier. Now you can comfortably stroll the ocean floor viewing Catalina's giant kelp forests amongst the abundant variety of marine life on the new Sea Trek Undersea Adventure. Trekkers do not need any prior diving experience and don't even need to know how to swim!
Zip LineImagine flying through the air at 40 miles an hour over 300 feet above beautiful Descanso Canyon, stopping at 5 different platforms along the way to give you a chance to take in breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean and the island's vegetation below. All while learning about Catalina's unique flora and fauna.  Catalina Island's new Zip Line Eco Tour will be an adventure you will never forget!

 Runners Welcome!
The Buffalo Run on February 27th, 2010 is the ultimate in trail running using the East End trails of Catalina Island. This half marathon course takes you from sea level to a 1600 foot elevation then return to sea level. You will experience spectacular views of San Clemente Island and Avalon. The race also features the popular flat and fast 5k course. Many parts of the half marathon course are in areas that are not accessible by the public without permits. The course is beautiful, with unbelievable vistas and pristine trails that few get to traverse.
Enjoy breathtaking scenery while running 26.2 miles over the Island in the Catalina Marathon on March 13, 2010. The race traverses mostly dirt trails and roads through areas of the interior of the Island where very few have gone. Starting in Two Harbors on the west end of the Island and ending in Avalon on the East end of the Island, it is a challenging Marathon, but worth every mile! You may even run into some buffalos along the way.
