Enjoy Rarely Seen Views of Avalon Harbor and the Catalina Casino!

Climb aboard a 12-passenger open-air biofuel H1 Hummer for a 50-minute narrated tour that offers a historical perspective of Avalon Canyon and rarely seen views of Avalon Harbor and iconic Casino.

Converted to run on biofuel refined from used vegetable oil, your 4-ton, 4-wheel drive ride will take you up and around on a private trail that offers sweeping views of Catalina Island Country Club and Golf Course, the oldest course west of the Mississippi.

Along the way, you’ll pass the former Bird Park, once thought to be the world’s largest, and the Wrigley Memorial and Botanical Gardens, where William Wrigley Jr. was interred for a short time following his death in 1932. You’ll also see the site of the first Wrigley Field, where Mr. Wrigley’s Chicago Cubs held spring training for 30 years starting in 1921, five years before the more famous Chicago ballpark was given the same name.

Your instructor/guide will teach the basics of paddling and you’ll find how simple and fun kayaking on Catalina’s clear ocean waters can be. Once on the water, your guide will point out interesting and historical landmarks, birds & plants, discuss the island’s ancient to modern history, geology and ecology as you glide over nearshore kelp forests above colorful fishes. There’s always something WILD to see… a harbor seal may peek at you from the offshore rocks or  a bald eagle may snag a fish from the water nearby. At Frog Rock, you’ll land to stretch your legs, have a yummy snack and bottle of water, take a quick dip in the sea if you desire. Suitable for everyone, non-strenuous for beginners. Advanced gear available for experienced paddlers.

You will travel close to three quarters of a mile over five consecutive zip lines at heights of 300 feet above the canyon floor at speeds up to 30 mph.
After shuttling to the top of the course, high in the hills near Avalon and descending through Descanso Canyon, you will pause at several eco-stations along the way before continuing on your journey. At each station, your hosts will give you a presentation on some of the unique and interesting aspects of Catalina Island, its wildlife, history, and the areas you are passing through. Eventually exiting at Descanso Beach your journey will last approximately two hours and your memories will last a lifetime.

9:15pm to 10:30pm: Suzanne Westenhoefer Live!
No one ever accused Suzanne of being subtle, not the shuttle driver who took her to the airport, the woman she was in line with at the grocery store yesterday, and certainly not her audiences.  Subtle, she is not.
After 25 years of groundbreaking, stereotype-shattering and brutally honest comedy, she’s not about to start pulling punches now.
The kid from Amish Country who began her comedy career on a dare is celebrating a quarter century of out, open, no-holds-barred comedy.
Suzanne tells the truth. The truth is life is funny, especially when it’s fermented in Suzanne’s mind. That’s why she could never be in the closet, making her a trailblazer when she started doing stand-up in the 1990s. She was the first openly lesbian comedian with an HBO Special and the first openly lesbian comedian on “Late Night with David Letterman.”
Suzanne never does the same show twice. She can’t. She doesn’t write anything down. She charges boldly onto the stage and what happens is always a mystery and a delight. Enjoy a wild night of comedy in a city near you.
Location: Host Hotel ~ Catalina Island Holiday Inn Resort (in the Catalina Banquet Room)
Price: $30 (included with VIP Pass, preferred seating for VIP Pass Holders)
