We bought tickets to a glass bottom boat ride for $17.50 each. It was worth every penny! We had so much fun. We went to Catalina on Sept. 30th so it was still nice weather there and was not crowded at all. There was only one other couple on the boat, so we got to walk around freely and spend a lot of time up on deck with the captain feeding the fish. The captain was soooo nice and very entertaining. He knew a lot about the fish and habitat, too which was cool. He also offered to take some pictures of us that turned out really good. There were tons of fish everywhere to look at. I would recommend buying fish food on the boat (two bags for $5) because it is fun to feed them. If you don't want to spend that much, at least buy a handful for 25 cents at the dispensers on the pier before you go so you can at least feed them a little. The Nautilus semi-submersible looks cool, but I heard that people get seasick feeling in there more often because it is an enclosed space without fresh air. The glass bottom boat has plenty of fresh air and is way cheaper.
