the coast and islands of southern California through expeditions, education, and support
of ongoing non-invasive research."
The crew members at Catalina Explorer are some of the best professional in the business. We have captains, dive masters, marine biologists, educators, wildlife experts, and a chef that makes nsome of the best food anywhere.
The Magician is our largest vessel and home-base for our offshore expeditions. She is a 65’ U.S. Coast Guard inspected vessel designed for exploring the Channel Islands.
The Tsunami is a 22' military inflatable that can operate alone for research support or coastal adventures, or far offshore for expeditions using the Magician as a home base.
The Scout is our 14' inflatable vessel for island landings and kayak/scuba support.
