This activity involves speed, fun and excitement that will get you into adrenaline. To take a jet ski, you must start from the green pier at Avalon Harbor and be transported to the Jet Ski Barge. From the houseboat you can jet ski with lifejackets and instructions to the sea.
A highlight of the island of Santa Catalina for tourists is parasailing. Parasailing boats on the water of the ocean are a common sight here with thousands of people doing this adventure. Parasailing takes them about 800 meters above the sea, where they can float from the colorful parasailing while watching the sea and the island below. If you are lucky enough to see the dolphins as well.
Tourists will find stand-up paddle boards, a great way to experience the wonders of Catalina’s beautiful locations such as Avalon Harbor, Casino Point and Lover’s Cove. Paddle boarding is a relatively easy way to enjoy the sun by the sea and also enjoy underwater views.
Santa Catalina has exotic places to surf like Shark Harbor and Ben Weston. Surfers enjoy riding on the calm waves of the sea, where many of them settle.
Santa Catalina also offers a variety of water adventures in organized tours. Ocean Runner Dolphin Tour, Flying Fish Boat Tours and Glass Bottom Boat Trips are the ones you should definitely look for.
