Our tour guide was Cindy. We had so much fun on our expedition. She had us laughing in between giving us greats facts about the Island. We saw buffalo, deer, and we were able to watch the bald eagle eat. The views were beautiful!!

Our family of 5 took this tour yesterday and absolutely loved every minute of it. What an extraordinary experience to see and ride through the beautiful mountains and valleys. Bear was our tour guide and his enthusiasm, humor and knowledge of Catalina and its history was beyond compare. His relaxed and soothing voice added to the remarkable experience, especailly as...

We had a great time on the tour with our driver Charles. He was so knowledgeable about the island and we learned so many things, it was definitely educational as well as a beautiful ride. My kids are 9 and 7 and grumbled at the thought that they would be bored on a 4 hr jeep ride around the island.... More

I took the Cape Canyone Expedition with Bear and found to have a memorable ride. It was a cold and foggy morning, which resulted in riding the hummer as a burrito. It also did not help that it started to rain, but Bear was very endearing to the passengers (including myself) to keep our hearts warm with a delightful humour,... More

Four hours in a Hummer is a lot easier than hiking the same trails for a couple of days. Our guide, Bear, made the whole tour fun, exciting and informative. He is very knowledgable about every little detail of the route. Be prepared for a bumpy, dusty ride! Everyone got a bottle of water, & we made a lunch stop... More

I've been to Catalina many times, but I never really "new" the island until I took this tour! Bear knows very nook and cranny of the island, as well as all the amazing stories to go along with it. He made it a true "don't miss" experience. Don't do as I did for many years before and question whether its... More

I took my granddaughter for a 4 day trip to Catalina for her 13th birthday. We did many activities and in the end she said her favorite was the Cape Canyon tour with BEAR. She wants to go again next time we go and told me we need to make sure to ask for Bear's tour. The scenery is beautiful... More

Booked the tour and thankfully we went the day before to get the tickets. They told us no one under 5 yrs of age could go. That pretty much canceled us out (two of my kids are under 3!) Their web site and call center never mentioned it. The manager told us the tour is not for any kids who... More
