Exploring Catalina Island is a never-ending voyage of discovery that involves adventures both above and below the water, natural history and human culture. Several companies can help guide you on that voyage of discovery, with tours, adventures and more.
Catalina Coastal Tours, a local family-run company, offers a range of unique tours that allow a glimpse of the island seldom experienced by most visitors. With a 24-foot boat, limited to only six passengers, Catalina Coastal Tours offers an intimate tour experience that is ideal for exploring Catalina’s wild coastline. One of their top tours offers a boat trip to White’s Landing, just down the coast from Avalon, and includes beach and water activities, like kayaking, stand-up paddling and snorkeling as well as lunch or dinner. Catalina Coastal Tours also offers an hour-long sea lion and dolphin tour to experience the popular mammals. Sightseeing, fishing and custom tours are available as well. An astronomy tour takes place in Avalon and includes an in-depth look at the night sky with telescopes and the guidance of a trained astronomer.
Catalina Coastal Tours is located at Pebbly Beach Road just across the street from the basketball courts. For more information call (626) 290-2888 or visit their website.
