Snorkeling allows mankind to explore uncharted oceanic worlds, exposing them to exotic underwater specimens such as the bashful sea dragon, the 3.14-tentacled octo-pi-pus, and the electric Funnoodle. Study a high-voltage menagerie with today's Groupon: for $59, you get a two-hour snorkeling adventure of Lover's Cove for two adults, including masks, fins, snorkel, wetsuit, and instruction (a $100 value) plus additional equipment and accessories (a $56 value) at Snorkeling Catalina (a $160 total value with tax), located in Avalon.
The snorkeling adventure for two sends aqua-browsers on a nautical voyage to Lover's Cove, a subaqueous paradise bustling with blossoming underwater gardens and blithesome marine life. Dry-footed landlubbers embark to their destination in a custom 20-foot Caribe vessel, beginning their fathomless odyssey with a one-hour guided tour of the cove. After that, daring doggy-paddlers are left to their own devices for an additional hour, free to feed the fish and cast metaphorical pearls of wisdom to literal pearls of oysters. All adventurous Ahabs are bestowed with snorkeling gear, sunglasses, fish food, and an underwater camera for capturing maritime tourist spots. Though everyone planning to use this Groupon should know how to swim, no prior snorkeling experience is necessary.
Snorkeling tours are available daily all year long. Reservations are recommended.
During Snorkeling Catalina's boat tours, snorkeling trips, and private sightseeing charters, visitors come face-to-fin with marine life. Tour guides lead revelers through shallow and deep waters and pilot inflatable boats offshore so passengers can snap photos of seals and dolphins. Back on land, the full-service snorkeling shop outfits guests with necessary equipment, such as flippers, masks, and underwater ovens for fish who don't like to eat soggy bread crumbs.
