Come spend the day in Catalina Island's waters for the opening of Lobster hunting season! These waters teem with life due to the cold, nutrient-rich waters, making every dive a new experience and ideal for hunters and photographers alike. Scuba diving and snorkeling enthusiasts who come to enjoy clear waters and abundant sea life find it free of mainland pollution and surf. The depth ranges from the rocky shoreline to 95 feet deep. Primarily the park consists of the fastest growing plant in the world, Giant kelp (Macrocystis pyrifera).
This will be a boat dive trip. Aboard the Explorer Boat, we can seemingly dive off the boat in several dive point locations that Catalina Island has to offer. Whether our diving location is Indiana Rock Dive Point or East Arrow or any other, you'll be able to explore the underwater world off the shores of Catalina Island, and catch as many Lobsters as regulations allow you to!
Most trips will yield 3 dives.
