About Catalina Food Tours
Catalina Food Tours, a family-owned and operated company, was born in the fall of 2012. Owner Erin Eubank was inspired by the Avalon Taste Around, an annual event that brings visitors and locals together to savor and sample the fare from Catalina Island restaurants.
She wanted to recreate this unique Avalon dining experience on a daily basis while helping our visitors learn more about Catalina. Since its inception, Catalina Food Tours has grown from our original Avalon Tasting & Cultural Walking Tour to include the Catalina Happy Hour Tour plus custom and private food experiences. Stay tuned for new offerings and events!

Erin EubankHead Foodie
Growing up, all of Erin’s summers were spent in Avalon – her family has been visiting and/or living on Catalina Island since the 1920s. In 2003, Erin and her family moved to the island full time when they purchased the Catalina Coffee & Cookie Co. Working in the coffee house along with a prestigious bed & breakfast (the former Wrigley mansion), our head foodie found a passion for supporting local businesses and sharing Catalina history. She thought the departure of her two oldest sons to college would be the perfect time to explore a new avenue.
Creating the only Food Tour offered in Avalon has been a mouthwatering adventure! Erin has since produced new tour offerings and developed fresh ways to highlight local eateries and drinking establishments while building an amazing team that looks forward to hosting you on Catalina Island.
