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.

One thing to remember you will need the physical ticket to board the submarine. Other than that it was a great experience for the whole family to enjoy. Little to no motion felt while under water! It’s definitely worth seeing!!!!
Spend more money

Ad for fish food wasn’t about looking at fish it was about buying the fish food to feed the fish wouldn’t recommend
