      Catalina East End Hummer Expedition

      Catalina Island, California, USA
      From (USD) $71 Per Person
      Highlights
      • East End drive: Head into the rocky hill country of the interior, climbing 1,500 feet above sea level on a mountain trail known for sightings of eagles, foxes, even bison.
      • Low carbon footprint: These highly modified open Hummers run on biofuel, keeping with the Catalina Island Conservancy's mission to protect the island's ecosystem.
      • Stunning views: The central hills offer sweeping panoramas of the island's natural beauty. To protect that beauty into the future, 10 percent of tour proceeds go to the Conservancy.
      About This Catalina Island Tour

      Catalina Island has been, at various times throughout history, a Spanish territory, a smugglers' haven, and a hunting ground for Russians and Americans seeking the pelts of sea otters and seals. Today, it's a popular getaway for those seeking a relaxing escape surrounded by natural beauty. The Santa Catalina Conservancy, the non-profit group that maintains the island, is dedicated to making sure they get just that.

      The Conservancy protects most of the island, and they've been extremely effective. One of their successes is the island's bald eagle population. Once upon a time, DDT contamination almost spelled doom for the bald eagle population on Catalina. But concerted efforts to "rebirth" the species has led to the hatching of nine chicks in the last eight years, from nests scattered across the island.

      As you head out of Avalon in an open-air biofuel H1 Hummer, you'll get a bird's-eye view of the Conservancy's efforts. Following eucalyptus-lined roads and rugged off-road trails that climb up to 1,500 feet, you'll experience spectacular views of the city, the canyons, and the coastline. Let's not forget about the wildlife you may spot: eagles, Catalina foxes, and maybe even a bison or two.

      From the top of the mountain, there's nothing you can't see, and you may feel like the world is a little smaller and more manageable. And that's an altitude adjustment you just can't pass up.

      Ferrying foxes

      The endangered Catalina Island Fox is smaller than a Yorkie, but it's the island's biggest predator, feasting on mice, lizards, birds, and insects. The fox has been an island resident for perhaps as long as 3,000 years, but how they got there is a big question. They may have floated over from the mainland on debris or logs, or they may have been brought over by Native Americans.
