This tour states that we would be scuba diving at Catalina Island. That was the only reason why my son and I went on this tour. However, we were informed that we would not be going to Catalina Island while we were already on the boat with our wet suits on! We went to a different spot where I saw a few fish but nothing like Catalina Island that I paid to visit. They said that we could not go to Catalina Island because of the weather conditions. However the weather was great! They should of informed us before we got on the boat.
