Who: Larry and Becky Jauregui
The trip: Avalon and Santa Catalina Island, to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary.
Points of interest: Two off-road Jeep tours in the mountains offered spectacular views of the island and wildlife, including a herd of bison. We spotted a whale breaching along the coast, otters, pods of dolphins and Garibaldi fish in the harbor. The Zip Line Eco Tour, a gift from our kids, was amazing! Five seperate lines up to 1,000 feet in length took us to speeds up to 40 mph through Descanso Canyon. It was truly a breathtaking experience.
Would you go again? Definitely! The Zip Line Eco Tour is expanding to include 10 zip lines with a free-fall experience! I don’t want to miss that!
