When visiting Avalon, and you want to see some Bison I suggest experiencing the Bison Expedition hosted by the Catalina Island Company. The Bison Expedition is an exhilarating 2-hour educational adventure into the interior of Santa Catalina in search of beautiful Bison that roam the protected Chaparral landscape of the island. Venture along the precipitous cliffs and through the picturesque interior in a 14-seated Hummer through Middle Ranch Road and up to Blackjack Campground. The Hummer is open with a sun canopy so you can feel the wind in your hair and marvel at the 360-degree views of the stunning landscape and the ocean. I embarked on our tour mid-February. It was a perfectly clear and warm day. We could see the mainland across the channel. The Hummer runs on ecofriendly biofuel, and throughout the entire tour, our driver was giving us essential information about the history of Santa Catalina, the wildlife, and the major hotspots.

This experience was absolutely AMAZING! My daughter and I had never been zip lining before, but my husband had done it once. First, they put on your gear and do a safety demonstration. Then it’s a bus ride to the top of the mountain. Our group had 7 people in it which was perfect, but they can take up to 15 which might mean a lot of waiting happens between zips. They perform a 10 step safety check before each rider goes. As a RN, I’m all about safety first so that made me feel good! The second zip is the longest at about 40 seconds. Our guides, Kenyon and Carly were awesome and made my slightly nervous daughter much more at ease and confident that she’d have fun. Thank you for that!😊 After zipping and gear removal there’s a photo booth where you can see your pics. The entire photo package is $50 which is a bit pricey, but at $20 for a single photo the package makes more sense. I highly recommend this tour when you come to Avalon! You won’t regret it!

I went with my Family. I had planned to let the guys go while I enjoyed a drink at Descanso Beach but when we got there and there was an opening I went for it. It was fun to cheer each other on. My Sons we’re proud of me. It was really fun and our guides were amazing. What beautiful views from the top!

I have a birthday weekend coming up and booked Journey to the Sky after seeing so many wonderful reviews. I booked in mid September and here it is, less than 24 hrs before our tour and they call to cancel my tour because they booked up and because I bought a “voucher” through TripAdvisor they cancelled my reservation!!!!! I am not a complainer, I generally go with the flow, as this is my first time being to Catalina I really wanted a land tour (I already have a boat tour) but they are ALL SOLD OUT!!!! I am beyond upset...do not book thru TripAdvisor!!!!!!
