Experience a universe of wonder beneath the waves. You do not need to be a certified diver or even know how to snorkel in order to view the kelp forests at Descanso Beach.
Our specially engineered undersea helmets allow virtually anyone to safely and comfortably walk along the sea floor and view the incredible beauty of the marine world around Catalina Island. Underwater guides will take you on a walking tour along the sea floor, past the towering Giant Kelp Forest, pointing out the vast array or sea life.
Catalina Island is known around the world for its incredible diving and water conditions. Underwater visibility typically ranges from 40-100 feet and temperatures reach into the seventies in the summer time.
Hundreds of species of marine plants and animals make their homes around the island and in the waters off Descanso Beach. It is not uncommon to be surrounded by teeming schools of mackerel or anchovies; spot a sea lions or a solitary bat ray gliding through the blue; or even to catch a glimpse of an elusive octopus or California Lobster hiding among the rocks.
Come join us on a journey that you will never forget!
Ages 12 and up.
