Buffalo Jeep Tour
This is our most popular tour. Spend 2 1/2 hours in the backcountry of Catalina. Keep your eyes open and you may see American Bison, Bald Eagles and the Catalina Island Fox roaming freely.

Your journey will begin on a scenic route and stop at the "Airport in the Sky.” From there you will continue to the windward side of the island for a view of Catalina’s rugged, unspoiled Pacific Shoreline (Little Harbor & Shark Harbor).  As you head back towards Avalon you will make your way to the Wildlife Studies and Eagle Aviary/Habitat.  Here you will meet Pimu (Bald Eagle) & Nee-Peech (Golden Eagle), Catalina’s ambassador eagles. 

Two Harbors Jeep Tour

Scenic Airport in the Sky Jeep Tour
Spend 1 1/2 hours enjoying the scenic route into Catalina Island’s backcountry and up to the historical Airport In The Sky.  The airport sits 1,600 feet above sea level, one of the highest points on Catalina Island.

The Airport In The Sky was commissioned by the Wrigley Family and officially opened in 1946. Two mountaintops were leveled and the remaining canyon filled in to create the 3,200-foot runway.
