On Day 1 of our adventure, we started out very early in the morning for California. We watched a few movies on the incredibly comfortable charter bus and slept most of the way!
We then arrived and hopped onto The Catalina King, our vessel which would ferry us to our destination!
Upon arrival we were instantly welcomed by the staff of the Catalina Island Marine Institute and made ourselves at home in the dorms!
Once we were settled, we got to do our very first snorkel, eat an incredible dinner, and went on an Astronomy hike in the evening. Whew what in incredible and exhausting day!
