Snorkeling Catalina ushers pairs into the waters of coastal California in search of underwater- and seaside-wildlife encounters. Snorkeling excursions introduce first-time flippers to underwater life, with experienced guides to help novices maneuver underwater sea gardens and identify dense concentrations of fish. Snorkelers witness schools of fish soldering coral reefs, and feed fish that are local to the Catalina waters. Snorkeling Catalina hosts trips throughout the day and provides lockers and changing rooms to switch from superhero costumes to the appropriate gear.

Slicing east on a high-speed inflatable powerboat, dolphin-and-sea-lion excursions trace a path along the Catalina coastline in search of mild-mannered water mammals. Tours visit the rookery of sea lions at Seal Rock, where guests observe the animals and may catch a glimpse of their rare and sacred whisker-waxing rituals. Boats then shove offshore, past secluded coves and beaches, in a search of pods of dolphins, which sometimes approach the boat to say hello or play cross-cove games of Marco Polo.

Snorkeling Catalina

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.
