Great Experience

Saw lots of fish. Very enjoyable. Only wish it lasted longer and there was more seating around the windows. You had to lean over the person you were sitting with.

Fun short excursion

This was a fun short activity. We were able to pay a little extra and send out fish food resulting in seeing lots of huge fish right next to the window. I highly recommend taking some Dramamine before this excursion if you tend to have motion sickness.

The whole family enjoyed this tour. We went with 2 children (5yo & 8yo), and they really loved seeing all of the different fish and feeding the fish.

The Catalina semi sub is perfect for families and children that need a break from the Catalina boardwalk. The tour guide had to deal with an impolite guest and was very professional.

A fun time under the sea
March 11, 2020
Took my wife and two kids (14 and 13) for a ride on the submarine. Although the sub does not fully submerge, you are a few feet below the water line so you have a great view of the seascape around you. We passed along kelp forests and saw many varieties of fish. The fish understand that food is involved and they make themselves known when the sub passes by. The food torpedo is a neat touch especially for those who want to get a selfie with a bunch of fish behind them. The ride was comfortable and not too crowded. A good time for folks of all ages.

It was very cool to be able to see the fish right outside the windows. It was a short excursion but the kids & adults loved it, plus you had a lot of time to explore other things! Catalina Island was nice.

If you want to get up close to fish and even be able to see their scales, this is the tour for you! If you are trying to decide between this and the glass bottom boat, both of which are owned by the same company by the way, this is definitely the better one to view fish. You will be in the submerged part of the submarine, but it never goes fully under the water.

Fun and exciting
November 24, 2015
This is a fun excursion for all in the family, and it's educational too. An hour flies by and you wish this excursion would last longer. Only downside our guide was not very excited about his job, he sounded bored (probably been doing it too long) but it was exciting for the rest of us. They could use clarity with directions when boarding submarine.
