Wet and Wild Water Sports on Catalina Island

Catalina IslandIf you manage to tear yourself away from the beaches, diving and fishing activity of Catalina Island, then get ready to be soaked again! There are plenty of water sports in the island area including snorkeling, swimming, wave running, water-skiing, paddle boarding and more.

If you enjoy swimming and snorkeling then make your way over to Lovers Cove, Avalon. This is the only part of the coast that allows snorkeling. On the plus side, all activity is free. You can take a scenic journey under water and watch lots of animals swim by. If you are nervous about snorkeling for the first time, or have kids, then head over to Ron Moore’s Snorkeling Catalina. You can have an escort assist you and offers guided snorkel tours, during the day and at night, boat snorkel trips and much more.

Catalina Jet Ski & Electric Bike Rentals handles all of your waverunner needs. Your water sports adventure starts at the Green Pleasure Pier in beautiful Avalon Harbor. Just imagine racing your Sea Doo up to 60 miles an hour on the open water!
