Chip and his son, Zack, 3rd and 4th generation family on Catalina Is provide a insider's knowledge of the history, wildlife and nature trails -- along with a great lunch and kayak -- all included -- at a secluded beach on the windward side of the island. Our five hour tour was the highlight of our time on the magical... More

We had an overall fantastic experience. Our trip to Little Harbor was excellent and filled with entertaining stories and facts about the island. As a family, we had no complaints.

Decided to consider stand up paddleboarding. There are three places in Avalon that will rent these things. I watched some people at the first place, most fell in. I asked their spotter a few questions, and he just kept saying it is easy, just go out and get the hang of it, and shrugged off my questions. They were not... More

On that tour, we were the only ones signed up, which meant that we went in a pick-up truck. We didn't know what to expect being just us and the guide. We were very pleasantly surprised. Our guide knew just about everything there is to know about the Island. His love for the island was really shining through. There were... More

My husband and I recently went on the full-day Outback tour with tour guide and local legend, Chip Upton. Chip was born on Catalina Island and had all kinds of great stories about growing up on the island, both historical and humorous! He took us all over the interior of the island and we made a stop by the Airport... More

Epic day with the Wet Spot cast. Very fun, adventurous, and educational (tour by a 3rd gen local). This was the best day on the island. We recommend this for families, couples, or solo adventures!!

My daughter and I booked a full day outback tour this past week, and I am so glad we did. We were excited to find that we were the only people booked that day, so it was me and my daughter and Cindy (our tour guide) and her daughter. Cindy grew up on the island, and thus was able to... More

We booked a land tour and because no one else booked this tour we had a private tour with myself, my husband and our tour guide: Cindy. The tour was absolutely excellent. Cindy is a local from the area and took us around most of the island. We stopped at unusual places along the coast and in the interior of... More

Great guide, inside stories from a third generation Avalon native. Highly recommended. Nice to be in a van rather than in the wind and dust of the open air vehicles.
