There are a couple of jeep tour companys that take you into the Catalina Island back country, but only one is part of the Catalina Island Conservancy which is a non-profit organization which pretty much manages most of the island. The jeeps are not the large Hummer type that carry a boatload of people. These are real jeeps that carry... More

What an awesome time we had on our tour with Chris at the wheel. We were graced with fabulous weather. It had rained during the night so everything was fresh and the views were incredible. The jeep is open air so dress in layers with hats, gloves, etc. it can get windy! We saw bison and a bald eagle. Chris... More

We took the eco jeep tour on our recent visit to catalina island during the recent Thanksgiving holidays. We did our tour on Friday and were the only folks on our jeep. As a result our family of 3 got a customized tour. The jeep only had a canopy at the top and provide complete view on all directions. The... More

We had one day to visit the Island and decided to take a half day private jeep tour. Our tour guide was Andrew Hobbs and he was great. He was very knowledgable and interesting. He took us all around the interior and we were able to see a couple of bald eagles, red tailed hawk and bison. He took us... More

Took the 4 hour tour with Steve Pillman and covered the whole island beyond Avalon. Steve was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the island, was able to answer all our questions and had a good sense of humor. He was considerate of his passengers and brought snacks and drinks on the tour. The views of the ocean and the... More

Took this tour recently while on Catalina. Not only did we get to see the bison (several of them and several times) we also got to see the foxes. Our guide was knowledgable and very funny - which made the time go by quickly. Pointed out all of the sites of interest, and punctuated that with a lot of island... More

This tour was so worth the price. We learned so much about the island from our tour guide Ceasar and he found the buffalo ! We were very close to them. We were planning on renting a golf cart to explore the island and I'm so glad we changed our minds. We learned so much about the island and island... More

My husband and i decided that we wanted to see more of the Island than just the Town of Avalon. Did we ever make a great decision; Andrew was very interesting and he had a great knowledge of the Island. We took 3 hours and we didn't see the time go by so quick. Animals and great views!

This was well worth the money to us because our wonderful driver and guide, Charles, answered all the things we'd been wondering about for the previous day. The ride took us into the back country and up to gorgeous views of the area, including Avalon. The jeep was comfortable--a nice sunscreen--and they provided a bottle of water. This was a... More
