Catalina Divers Supply runs a boat called SCUBA CAT. The diving off
Catalina Island is beautiful: kelp forests, the giant Black Sea Bass are
making a wonderful comeback, garibaldi, rockfish, scorpionfish,
nudibranchs, and an occasional sea lion zips by.
The boat is great for diving: easy off (giant stride off the back) and on
(sturdy ladders). There's a head on the boat and part of the boat is
covered if you want to get out of the elements. Lunch is included. The crew
are consistently excellent: safety conscious, friendly, helpful. They make
a real effort to find the best dive spots depending on the conditions that
day.
