Catalina Island has a ton of tours of the island. I think at least three to four of those tours are on retro looking buses without windows. Perfect for picture taking. The Avalon Scenic Drive is a tour of the west end of the island and cost $15 per person. We were comped for the tour because we couldn’t do the water activities. The tour was alright. Our driver was this old lady and she definitely put in her two cents. The scenery was pretty but her driving was kinda scary. She would tell us we could take pictures and she’d stop but she didn’t stop. The roads up those mountains are real narrow mind you. There were multiple times where I thought we wouldn’t make it to the bottom. I took some nice pictures of the bay and the water on the west end. The East End tour still stands as my favorite. I apologize if this post doesn’t make any sense. I got back from Nebraska yesterday and I got sick. I’ve been asleep all day and just woke up about 45 minutes ago.
All the tours meet at tour plaza and line up under a sign. This is the scenic sign.
That’s the road for cars going both ways. It was super tight especially since we were in a bus.
Palm trees from Pasadena! 🙂
Cool sign towards the end of the tour
One of the many houses she showed us. We learned a lot about the island’s history and Mr Wrigley.
Descano Beach! 🙂 It’s a private beach where you can drink booze and it’s legal.
Next up is the East End Tour. It was my favorite activity on Catalina.
