  • We had a great Jeep tour! A beautiful, historic island and an easy going knowledgeable guide (Ron) made for a memorable tour. We enjoyed learning about Catalina's history and conservation efforts, but the highlight of the trip had to be the opportunity to view the conservancy's two rescued eagles! The tour felt a bit pricy, but you can at least feel good knowing that the funds go to further the conservation efforts (which are extensive).
  • The bus driver that took us to the airport was very nice and full of information about his wonderful island he was brought up in. Definitely coming back.
  • Awesome Jeep tours of the island.
  • Awesome port in the sky! I flew in here on a Piper Arrow thinking the landing would be tricky at about 1k elevation after a flyby and square up, upon normal touchdown the runway appeared to run short up ahead...that was an illusion! If you approach the port normally, it will be ok! Just don't overshoot the end, that would be bad! Takeoffs may be equally scary with the possibility of engine failure at liftoff or just not being attentive to the situation! Make sure to do that walk-around check thoroughly before landing and takeoff!
