WILDLANDS EXPRESS SERVICE
 

Masks are required to be worn by all passengers and the driver on our Wildlands Express Shuttle.

We are reducing the number of seats for sale to allow more space between guests.

Shuttles are sanitized between runs. 


The Wildlands Express is a convenient and inexpensive way to get to and from the world famous Airport in the Sky and see Catalina's wildlands. If you're lucky, you may spot a Catalina Island fox, bald eagle high in the sky, or bison roaming the hills. Shuttle leaves from the Conservancy's Trailhead visitor center in Avalon at 708 Crescent Avenue.
