Choose from Four Options

  • $14 for a 45-minute tour aboard the glass-bottom Sea View for two (up to a $36 value)
  • $25 for the above tour for four (up to a $72 value)
  • $29 for a 45-minute tour aboard the SS Nautilus semisubmersible for two (up to a $68 value)
  • $55 for the above tour for four (up to a $136 value)

The Sea View coasts through the waters of Lover's Cove as the captain points out fish and plant life beneath the glass-bottom vessel. A replica of a US Navy nuclear-operated semisubmersible, the SS Nautilus emulates the experience of diving below sea level with sound effects and bubbles outside the window. Throughout both tours, guests of all ages can wave at wild fish swimming about the hull and even feed them from drop tubes and torpedo chutes.

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.
