Catalina Adventure Tours’ aquatic guides unlock the secrets of undersea living during 45-minute group tours lead by a USCG-licensed captain. Safely submersed below sea level aboard the military replica SS Nautilus, groups of up to 45 search the waters for rapidly growing ladder kelp, boisterous fish, and reflections they think are sea spirits. Wide viewing ports immerse passengers in oceanic ambiance, and feeding systems on both boats let passengers jettison food for hungry fish (food torpedoes are available for an additional fee). Passengers on the bright yellow SS Nautilus also embrace their submarining alter egos, interacting with staff members clad in military-style garb while reading mission briefings or studying pictures of local species of fish and other sea life on an extra-large plasma screen. Catalina Adventure Tours also runs evening missions, with guides serving as curators of ocean nightlife and designated drivers for seahorse discotheques.

Catalina Adventure Tours

Catalina Adventure Tours’ aquatic guides unlock the secrets of island living during submarine and glass-bottom-boat tours or interior land excursions. Safely submersed below sea level aboard the military replica SS Nautilus, groups of up to 45 search the waters for rapidly growing ladder kelp, boisterous fish, and reflections they think are sea spirits, and those riding in glass-bottom boats start feeding frenzies among hungry schools gliding below. Alternatively, guests can spy bald eagles and buffalo during an Inside Adventure tour or gaze over cacti speckling the foreground of sweeping ocean views from the Wrigley Memorial & Botanical Gardens on the City Botanical Garden tour. Catalina Adventure Tours also runs evening missions with guides serving as curators of ocean nightlife and designated drivers for seahorse discotheques.
