I have now been so fortunate as to have visited Catalina on three separate occasions. The first was while on a cruise, which was just enough to inspire me to go back for more. On my second visit, I booked a jeep tour with Catalina Transportation Services. I desperately wanted to see the interior of the island. I knew I wanted to go from Avalon to Two Harbors to get a good look at the island and to compare the two harbors. Instantly upon meeting Chuck, my friend and I knew we were in for an amazing day. Chuck was warm, friendly, welcoming and enthusiastic. His prospective was both extremely interesting and entertaining. He was not just a tour guide, he had the knowledge of someone with deep family roots on the island. He knew the spots just right for a beautiful photo, took photos of us surrounded by the beauty of Catalina, pointed out the wildlife and plants native to the island, and added humor all along the way. He answered every one of our questions and showed us more in four or so hours than we could have ever dreamed of. Chuck brought Catalina to life for us and made us thirst for more.
Well, I just recently returned to Catalina for my third visit. This time there were three of us in my group. My first priority was to book another jeep tour and ask for Chuck! We were so happy he was available, and we had another amazing day out and about on the island. If you find yourself visiting the island in the future, you must not miss out on the opportunity to truly see the island's beauty and learn details from someone who knows them inside and out. Be certain to ask for Chuck, you will be glad you did!!!
