45 Minute Semi-Submarine Tour of Catalina Island From Avalon
Discover the underwater world of Catalina Island during a 45-minute ride on a semi-submarine. The semi-sub allows you to view the marine life of Avalon Bay as you dive six feet (two meters) below the surface at Lovers' Cove. Stay dry as you get a close look at fish feeding around the submarine, then take in views of the island from your vessel's top deck during the return journey to Avalon.

* A traveler said: "We thoroughly enjoyed the tour led by Frankie. His personal stories were a lovely addition to the history of this amazing building. We hope to someday return to attend an event in the ballroom. We highly recommend this tour. Our only complaint was in booking the tour itself. During the online booking process, there was no option to choose the time of the tour. It was not clear that we had to call Viator, who then gave us another number to call to arrange the time of our tour. Then when we arrived at the casino, there was difficulty pulling up the booking. I had the receipt on my phone and the lovely woman working at the ticket desk went ahead and let us into the casino as the tour had started minutes beforehand. Viator needs to make.it clear to those booking online that there are further steps to securing the time of the tour."
