Most visitors to Catalina Island off the coast of Los Angeles see only the quaint coastal town of Avalon during their trip. This 4-hour 15-minute tour takes you to the island's interior in a 12-passenger eco-friendly H1 Hummer. This is the only scheduled off-road tour that travels into beautiful Cape Canyon and the steep, rugged Sheep Chute Road, where Catalinas herd of American bison live. Look for American Bald Eagles and emerge on the rarely seen windward side with tremendous views. On your return, stop for lunch at Avalon's Airport-in-the-Sky, 1,600 feet (488 meters) above sea level.

    This was an excellent tour. Keep in mind that we were informed by the tour guide that there was a 50/50 chances that we would see bison. (We actually saw two.) However, the scenery is breathtaking and worth the price of admission.

    I loved this ride. The Humvee was a blast and the driver took us all over to find bison. we came withing 20 feet of a small heard. Was soo much fun and a fun ride. I will do this again next time im there. Also check ot the east end tour. That takes you to the top of the world great ride also..
