Dear Island Lover,
Come have some FUN IN THE SUN on Catalina Island this summer! Let the locals show you the way with unique adventures created by islanders that want to share their beautiful island lifestyle with you!
Catalina Island Outback Tour & Beach Picnic
This is Catalina's best kept secret, it's where the locals go on their day off! Venture outside of Avalon and enjoy the quiet beauty of Catalina Island's outback - where the buffalo roam. The 16 mile drive through Catalina's interior provides amazing views and photo opportunities. After your adventurous ride through the hills you will arrive at Little Harbor, one of the island's most beautiful beaches to enjoy a picnic lunch on your island style day off. After about 3 hours of free time to kayak, hike, beach comb, or just kick back under your beach umbrella...your adventure continues with the drive back to town on a different route through enchanting Middle Canyon, home to the island's fresh water reservoir and Pimu, the resident bald eagle who you will stop to visit. After a day at the beach and driving "the loop", you will have experienced the best of Catalina Island. Tours are daily 10am - 4pm $139.00 per person (approximately 3 hours at beach). For more information on this tour call Wet Spot Rentals 310-510-2229 or visit their website www.catalinakayaks.com.
