Catalina Island Hike and Kayak
Catalina Island is 54 miles of rugged coast line, open country side, and numerous coves and private beaches. Our adventure begins with a helicopter ride over to Pebbly Beach from the main land where we will begin our first day of hiking. Navigating around the southern tip of the island we will enjoy spectacular views of the rugged coastline as well as the chance encounter with a herd of buffalo.
Our first night is spent on the Pacific side of the Island in a secluded cove with a nice dinner and a chance to swim in the ocean. The following morning we depart along the Trans-Catalina trail to Two Harbors for lunch. Loading up our kayaks we begin the next phase of our adventure by paddling down the eastern coast and into our camp for the evening. With an early arrival into camp there will be plenty of snorkeling opportunities. The islands remote coves offer a sense of seclusion making this adventure an ideal weekend getaway.
Day 1: You will board the helicopter in either Long Beach or San Pedro in the morning and transfer 15 minutes over to the island. Viewing the island from above is a great way to see the contours and inlets along the coast. Upon arrival to the island we will transfer to the trail head where lunch will be waiting. We will have a moderate 8 mile hike down the western slopes of the island finishing at our camp in a secluded cove. Dinner will be served at camp.
Day 2: After an early breakfast we will depart along the newly created Trans-Catalina trail. This trail undulates over the islands many peaks and valleys showcasing amazing views of the islands rugged western coast. Our morning hike covers 4 miles before reaching the shores of Two Harbors on the eastern side of the island. We will load into our kayaks and begin the second leg of our journey paddling the islands coast. We will kayak approximately 6 miles to a secluded cove where our camp will be for the night. We will arrive into camp early with plenty of time to enjoy the beach and opportunity to try fishing these waters.
Day 3: With a later start we will have breakfast at camp and depart back to our final destination of Pebbly Beach. Along the coast we will come across plenty of marine and bird life as we paddle the remaining 10 miles back to base. We will have lunch on the beach before meeting our helicopter in the early afternoon for a scenic ride home.
