POWER SNORKELING AT CASINO POINT

This exciting new way to snorkel uses a special handheld unit with a propeller that enables you to experience the spectacular beauty of the kelp forest in a completely new way.  Light, compact and portable, the power snorkel unit, called a Diver Propulsion Vehicle (DPV), allows you to cover more distance than you might not otherwise cover.

You will be met by a friendly certified Snorkeling Instructor and receive expert training on how to operate your DPV safely, while being fully supervised at all times throughout the tour.

After instruction, you will walk into the ocean and the excitement begins.  You will cruise through the clean, clear waters effortlessly like James Bond, in a unique and thrilling experience!

This 45 minute excursion is safe, fun and environmentally friendly and is ideal for beginners or advanced swimmers.

TRADITIONAL SNORKEL TOUR

– CASINO POINT 

Your excursion begins at the Casino Point where your instructor will orientate you with your equipment, proper snorkeling techniques and explain important safety procedures.

As you enter the water from shore, you'll begin to notice the diversity of marine life Catalina has to offer. Our instructors will teach you about Catalina's algae-based ecosystem and how it correlates to the fastest growing plant in the world...giant kelp. Keep in mind, this tour is not just a snorkeling tour, but also a marine eco-tour.

Also, your snorkeling instructor feeds the fish food during the tour so you're able to witness a "feeding frenzy". Imagine snorkeling with hundreds of fish just an arm's reach away! Some of the more common fish viewed: Garibaldi, sheephead, calico bass, senorita fish, blacksmith, opaleye and kelp fish.
