“On the pier, we had some good discoveries here”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

Well worth the trip, we found out alot of information and also made our game plan (which we didn't have earlier.) Highly recommend the package deals, much cheaper than buying one excursion at a time.

“Catalina Conservancy Tours”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

The group which owns 88% of the island is the Catalina Conservancy and they give a variety of tours into the interior of the Island. These are the only official tours with guides who know the history, the geology, the flora and fauna of the island and I would recommend that you take their tours rather than some others. We took the 3-hour jeep tour and had Andrew as our tour guide He is marvelous and kept a constant spiel going about the history, geology and nature and filled with little anecdotes and stories about previous inhabitants. He also lived on the island during the 2007 fire and has some harrowing stories about that. Our group of 4 really enjoyed his tour and would recommend the Conservancy especially.

“Very effective programs”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

The bureau has the merchants working on the same page. For example, on your birthday you get a ribbon that gives you a free boat ride to and from the mainland, free lunch at the Buffalo Nickel, free coffee and ice cream, free miniature golf, discounts everywhere. They also promote a bunch of other events and maintain an excellent webpage so you can find events.
