Catalina Island: Undersea Expedition
Take the Catalina Express from the Dana Point port for an hour boat ride, only 22 miles off the coast of Southern California. The fun doesnt stop there! We will be taking the Undersea Expedition tour aboard the Sea Wolf, a semi-submersible vessel. Ticket price includes Catalina Express ticket and Undersea Expedition tour.
Come face-to-face with Catalinas abundant marine life by cruising five feet under water in a spacious, climate-controlled cabin. Every passenger has their own seat and port hole plus youre free to roam about the cabin seeking other viewpoints. Youll see an incredible array of undersea dwellers: bright orange garibaldi, spotted calico bass, urchins, rockfish and bat rays, just to name a few. This is more than a tour; its an undersea adventure.
Catalina Express operates its ticketing and docking from the offices of Dana Wharf Sportfishing in beautiful Dana Point Harbor. This port is located just off the 5 Freeway and is convenient for travelers coming from San Diego or Orange County.
