    What to Expect
    Set sail on a 45-minute cruise to the pristine waters of Lovers’ Cove. With hourly departures from Avalon Bay's Green Pier, explore the undersea gardens that lie just offshore beneath the surface of this ocean oasis. Peer down through the glass bottom of the Sea View as it glides over breathtaking kelp forests that sway in a graceful underwater ballet.

    As you journey through liquid space, your guide will point out unique and colorful marine life as you marvel at the exquisite loveliness of the Garibaldi, Kelp bass, Leopard sharks, opal eye fish, bat rays, moray eels, sardines, and, yes, even the occasional friendly sea turtle, that make their home in the cool currents.

    You can even feed the fish through specially designed food tubes. Cost of the fish food is extra, but the spectacular number of fish it attracts is an exhilarating sight to see! As you cruise back across the glistening waters to your harbor, enjoy breathtaking views of this island paradise and contemplate the natural wonders that Catalina Island has offered you this day.

    Didn’t go very far. Could have included more stops to see different fish. Rather short and not much to see

    The Captain was kind and informative. The staff had fish food readily available. I would recommend this trip for any parent taking their child on a get-a-way or vacation.

    You hardly leave the harbor. Putter two stops away, see some sea bass and not much else. Young kids were entertained so for those families it may be okay, but if not don't waste your time...

    I booked this excursion for my parents. They could not go because of not feeling well. Called and spoke with Catalina island glass bottom boat representative. She said we can not give you return. You can use ticket for one year and re book it....More
