What You Can Expect

Catalina Island Zipline Eco-Tour from Anaheim or Los Angeles

Catalina Island Zipline Eco-Tour from Anaheim or Los Angeles

Following morning pickup from your Los Angeles or Anaheim hotel, board a shuttle for transport to the Long Beach Landing Terminal to catch the ferry. 

Aboard the ferry, enjoy the smooth ride to Catalina Island, just 22 miles (35 km) off the coast. As the boat sails away from the mainland, check out the fabulous views of the Southern California coastline receding in the distance.

Disembark the ferry in Avalon, Catalina's largest town. Meet your guide at the zipline launch spot, a 15-minute walk away through the charming town. Meet your expert adventure guide for a short safety briefing and orientation, then get fitted for a harness and helmet. 

Clip in and zip away, starting at the Hog's Back gate in the hills above Avalon. Travel on 5 consecutive lines, some at heights of 300 feet (91 meters) above the floor of Descanso Canyon. You'll reach speeds of up to 45 mph (72 kph), stopping at several eco-stations to learn about the island's history and ecology from your guide. 

End your 2-hour zipline adventure ends at Descanso Beach. Board the ferry ride back to Long Beach, where you’ll be picked up and taken back to your hotel for drop-off.

Another great day out. It was great to get away from the craziness that is LA. Our driver arrived in time and was extremely friendly. Catalina was beautiful, great swimming, kayaking and exploring before our Zipline adventure. Great guides, super friendly and they made the experience very memorable!
