Bison Expedition

Go in search of Catalina’s World-Famous Bison

Climb aboard an open-air biofuel Hummer and go in search of Catalina’s American Bison on this exciting 4-wheeling expedition. Descendants of a small herd left on the island by a movie crew in the 1920s, Catalina bison now number about 150 and are managed by the Catalina Island Conservancy.

Bison Expedition takes you into the heart of Catalina's rugged wilderness. You'll pass through Middle Ranch, before heading up Cape Canyon to a scenic overlook on Black Jack Mountain. And then it's down the original 19th-century stagecoach route back to Avalon. Along the way, your guide will share interesting facts about the island's history as you journey through favorite bison grazing grounds, where you’ll have an excellent opportunity to see these majestic animals in the wild. It’s a unique experience you’ll only find on Catalina Island.
