Safari Island Adventure - $84, 2.5 hours
Climb into an open air safari vehicle for a guided eco-expedition that takes you to the outback areas and coastal canyons of the Island Conservancy, home to wild animals like bison, fox and bald eagles. Journey up the tree lined "Old Stagecoach Road" from sea level to an elevation of 1604 feet. Featuring picturesque scenery, your bumpy transport makes it's way through rugged terrain, venturing to Gallagher's Canyon, Swain's Canyon and coastline areas such as "Smugglers" and "Rippers" Cove. The wild animals roam free, which makes every sighting an exciting bonus. On clear days enjoy the 360 degree panoramic views.
Nautilus "The Yellow Submarine" - $24-31, 45-minutes
Join the captain and his crew on the semi-submersible SS Nautilus (you are seated 6-feet underwater but the Nautilus does not fully submerge). Armed with fish food torpedoes, you will venture into the deep kelp forests on an exploratory mission that is both educational and entertaining. Evening missions also available seasonally for viewing the undersea night life that only begins after dark!
Glass Bottom Boat - $14-18, 45-minutes
If you feed them they will come... describes this timeless attraction. The crystal clear waters of Lover's Cove are home to a rich variety of undersea life. Guides help you identify fish, plants and other ocean inhabitants. Aboard the Sea View, you can feed the fish through specially designed food drop tubes, viewing them from above via the glass panes on the bottom of the vessel. Perfect for those who'd rather be in an open-air boat (versus the submarine).
