Choose from Four Options

  • $19 for a snorkeling tour of Lover’s Cove for one (a $45 value)
  • $35 for a snorkeling tour of Lover’s Cove for two (a $90 value)
  • $34 for a power-snorkeling tour of Lover’s Cove for one (a $69 value)
  • $59 for a power-snorkeling tour of Lover’s Cove for two (a $138 value)

Both tours explore the same territory and include snorkeling equipment: a mask/snorkel (prescription masks available), fins, a wetsuit, a snorkeling vest, and a view raft. The power-snorkeling tour comes with a Bladefish—a compact, handheld propeller which pulls snorkelers through the water. After leading a brief tutorial, instructors guide visitors on the Lover's Cove snorkeling tour. The waters teem with brightly colored marine life, such as blue-dotted starfish and the bright-orange garibaldi—a fish so tame it will often eat french fries straight from divers' hands. Guides also plunge down to the seafloor, bringing back up marine animals for tourists to experience firsthand. After about 45 minutes of guided snorkeling, participants get time for free swim. As there are no onsite changing facilities, guides advise visitors to wear their swimsuits beneath their street clothing. Towel rentals ($3) and locker rentals ($2) are available.

Diving Catalina

Just off the coast of Southern California in the waters surrounding Catalina Island resides an underwater civilization as awe-inspiring as the city above. To see it, the experienced divers of Diving Catalina outfit explorers of all skill levels to swim over the marine landscape, leading journeys into the protected Casino Point Underwater Dive Park and the kelp forest. In addition to guiding tours, Diving Catalina also rents snorkeling equipment and leads classes that range from introductory dives to advanced, postcertification scuba training to become the next Aquaman.
