A great way to explore and experience the beauty of Catalina Island is by getting out on the water. The sparkling ocean surrounding the island is filled with dolphins, whales, sea lions, and an array of fish including the California flying fish and the Garibaldi, the bright orange fish that is the official marine fish of California.
Take a trip on our Ribcraft in search of dolphins on the Dolphin Quest Tour, get up close and personal with native fish from the comfort of our semi-submersible vessel on the Undersea Expedition or on our Glass Bottom Boat Voyage, take a nighttime cruise in search of the California flying fish on the Flying Fish Boat Trip (seasonal) or motor down to the island’s West End village of Two Harbors on the Blanche W on the Sundown Isthmus Cruise (seasonal). Our Avalon boating adventures depart from the Green Pleasure Pier.
If you just want to get in the water, you can do that too. Our new Catalina Sea Trek Eco Tour allows you to walk on the ocean floor and view the incredible beauty of the marine world around Catalina Island. The Catalina Island SNUBA diving experience is unforgettable. Don’t miss the Casino Point Marine Park in Avalon, Southern California's first city-designated underwater park.
With so much to see and do on Catalina Island, you’ll find yourself coming back for more. Don’t miss opportunities for our land adventure tours where you can explore some of Catalina Island’s interior areas or enjoy a Scenic Tour of Avalon.
