Catalina Island Ridgetop Eco Adventure

29 reviews
Travel up above the town of Avalon to an elevation of 1,500 feet (457 meters) on this tour of the southeast end of Catalina Island. Aboard an open-air biofuel H1 Hummer, you'll get bird's-eye views of the island and Pacific Ocean on this exploration through 5 miles (8 km) of rugged terrain. Admire the coast and canyons, and journey along a eucalyptus-lined road to return to Avalon.

Our Conservancy tour stopped here for a midpoint rest and we found both the high (for Catalina) location and historic nature most interesting. The airport only serves private planes so there is usually not a lot of traffic.

This is the quickest way to get to the mainland by air where the mainland can be seen in the distance on a clear day. This is mainly a heliport.

We took the shuttle to the airport to view some of the Island, take a hike and suggested by a few the excellent bison burgers and other food items. The ride was fine, saw some wildlife and views. The hike was great, foxes, birds, and a bison. The airport, the atmosphere, and view great, but the food and prices criminal. Eating at Burger King 4 stars in comparison.

Great tour up the mountain learning all about Catalina Island! Airport In The Sky has breathtaking views and an awesome interactive museum showcasing historical facts about the island and also all the endemic species use of wildlife there. Nice little restaurant where hot chocolate, HUGE homemade cookies and a variety of other gnoshing goodies are available. Lots of people in our group ordered their hamburgers and fries which looked delicious! Highly recommend! 🎉🎉🎉
