Lover’s Cove is located just a few minutes walk from the center of Avalon, just off the coast of Southern California on the beautiful island of Catalina. Lover’s Cove is an eco-rich marine sanctuary, protected by the State of California and free of mainland pollution and surf. In the clean, clear waters of Lover’s Cove, an undersea garden of giant kelp harbors dozens of species of fish and invertebrates, including sea stars, sea cucumbers, sea urchins, lobsters and octopus. Bright orange Garibaldi, plentiful and tame, are as bold as their coloring and are known to eat right out of your hand! Deep in the heart of Lover's Cove, Catalina Snorkel and Scuba – the only shop of its kind on the island - is located directly across the street from the Cove’s waterfront. While its accessibility and exclusivity make it a convenient choice, it is Catalina Snorkel and Scuba’s expertise and experiential approach to snorkeling that makes it such a popular stop for Catalina visitors. With all its treasures, Lover’s Cove is truly a snorkeler’s paradise – and a perfect destination for individuals and families alike. Lover’s Cove… …Is the place to go!
