Pricey and short. Saw the same fish from shore along the pier. The trip was suppose to be 45m. Only in the kelp for about 15m. Maybe ok for kids.

Response from VisitCatalina, Manager at Catalina Island Undersea Expedition
Responded 1 week ago
We're sorry to hear that the Undersea Expedition wasn't to your liking. The vessel needs to travel to and from Lover's Cove, which does take some time. In addition to watching the fish be fed, we find that guests also enjoy sitting atop the sub on its return to the pier to take in the gorgeous views of town. We hope you had an enjoyable visit nonetheless, and hope to see you on one of our other experiences in the future.

Fun tour. A lot of fish. "Firing" fish food attracts schools of fish. Friendly and informative crew.

We all enjoyed this activity. The views were great. The boat does rock so if motion sickness is an issue take precautions. Fun for all ages.

This was so much fun! My 6 and 3 y/o LOVED every minute. They were enthralled with being able to see out of the windows and loved seeing the fish swarm when the captain went up and fed them. The captain's description of what we were seeing was really informative. We had heard
