Eco Tours Provide Natural Fun in Santa Catalina

Eco tours are guided tours across areas that are known to be pristine or fragile. The method of transport is low impact and focuses on education instead of short-term entertainment. The proceeds from these tours usually go towards local conservation. The Island of Santa Catalina is controlled by the Conservancy organization. The Conservancy is responsible for planning a few eco tours that will appeal to nature enthusiasts and wildlife lovers.

The Jeep Eco Tour is a program that takes visitors into the “rugged” parts of town; this refers to the interior sections of the island as well as the seaward side. Jeeps can travel for a half day or full day. Many travelers think of these jeep excursions as mini-safaris, because of their rough nature.

The Avalon Summer Naturalist Program is based in Avalon. This program offers nature walks, hiking, campfire and some interactive learning. This is a free educational program. The Conservancy invests in the education of children. In the past, they have organized events to help inner city kids travel on a boat ride and learn about island care. The Conservancy also has support groups for boating enthusiasts, horseback riding fans and divers.

The Catalina Zip Line Eco Tour is an example of a popular eco tour. Guests start at Hog’s Back Gate in Avalon and travel through Descanso Canyon and make their way to Descanso Beach. The tour lasts about two hours. Eco-tours in Santa Catalina are fun not only because you get to experience the rough terrain, but also because your hosts give you presentations on historical and cultural facts about the island.

If you are traveling to Santa Catalina, why not arrange to take an eco-tour before you head back home? An eco-tour provides more than just scenery—it is an adventure in learning, and one that will benefit you as well as the beautiful Island of Santa Catalina.
