Q: How long does it take to get to Catalina Island?
A: This usually depends upon conditions, how much time we spend playing with the dolphins and how much time we spend at the Blue Caverns swimming before we head in to the beach. It is approximately a 2 hr ride from the time we leave Long Beach to the time we arrive at the island.
Q: Can 2 people ride on 1 jetski?
A: Our Seadoo's can handle 2 riders in the ocean. For comfort, we highly recommend one rider per ski. For Families with children, passengers can ride as long as they are over 12 years old. The total weight capacity is 400lbs.
Q: What is the age requirement for this trip?
A: To operate a jetski on your own, you must be 16 yrs old. Passengers may ride behind an adult if they are over 12 years old. This is an extreme outdoor adventure, and is not friendly for children.
Q: How intense is the trip?
A: Depending on time of year, and ocean conditions, this adventure can be smooth sailing, but many times, especially during summer time, the ocean conditions can get rough, and one MUST have a sense of adventure and confidence when riding. If you do not have an outgoing sense of adventure in you, do NOT book this trip. You may want to consider one of our local coastline adventures instead.
Q: What type of watercraft do we ride?
A: Our fleet of watercraft are custom built skis by Seadoo. They are very stable, quiet and provide a wonderful ride in the ocean environment. As an added bonus, they are low emission eco friendly vessels.
Q: When is the best time to go?
A: We run Jetski2Catalina Adventure year round. The ocean is an amazing place, and depending on the time of year you travel with us to the island, you will see different marine life, experience different conditions. We provide each of our guests with a wetsuit and vest, so our riders are seldom cold. The water temperature remains in the upper 60's all thru the spring and fall, so snorkeling is still an option during these months.
Q: What is provided for us on the trip?
A: We provide all the equipment you will need: Jetski, Fuel, Wetsuit, Safety equipment, snorkeling gear, pictures and guides and all the on water activities, including swimming thru the world famous Blue Caverns. You simply show up and let us do all the work.
Q: What should I bring along on the trip?
A: We recommend you bring bottled water, sunscreen, water shoes or sandals for walking on the island, water proof camera , extra t-shirt in a zip lock bag, towel, credit card for lunch and gift shop. It is also recommended you bring along a snack (granola bar, fruit snacks, etc) as most guests like to relax on their ski when we stop to rest, and have a bite to eat.
Q: What if weather is bad? Do we still go?
A: We monitor NOAA weather up until the moment we leave, and continue to do so while on the ride. If your guide is not comfortable with any weather condition, he may cancel or delay the trip, until it is safe for the journey.
Q: Where do we eat?
A: Once we arrive on Catalina Island, there are a few different spots to eat. You may decide to eat at the new Harbor Sands restaurant on the water, sit at the outdoor bar, or take in a quick burger at Harbor Reef cafeteria. The little market also has lots of snacks, drinks and souvenirs.
Q: I would like to snorkel. Do you provide the equipment?
A: Each of our skis are equipped with a mask and snorkel. We do not provide fins. If you would like to bring fins, please make sure they are the short style as the full size fin will not fit in the storage compartments. If you would like to bring along your own snorkeling equipment, that is fine as well.
