Catlaina Island is surrounded by ocean and it would only make sense that this would be a great place for whale watching. Many say that this is one of the premier destinations for whale watching as the whales are numerous and the calm waters are unlike no other location in Southern California.
Catalina Island's geography makes the waters surrounding the island very deep and it is not uncommon to see whales almost on the beach. Along with whales, dolphin of at least 6 species as well as sea lions, harbor seals, and even bald eagles are regulary seen. Catalina Island whale watching makes you forget you are in one of the largest urban centers in the world and is a experience of a lifetime. Have fun.
