|Catalina's marine environment is unique. As in the Galapagos, the Island's habitat diversity is created by currents that create distinct temperatures and nutrient levels. This rare confluence makes Catalina's waters home to a wide variety of creatures.
The California Marine Sanctuary Foundation provides online tours of each of California's marine protected areas. The tours feature stunning photographs, videos, information and links to "things to do" for these special ocean areas.
Whether you are a diver, a boater, an angler, or if you like the beach or simply love seafood, you can help protect Catalina's marine environment now and for generations to come. View the brochure online.
