Have you added up what a day of diving via the Catalina Express really costs?

1. Parking at Long Beach - something like $8.

2. Round trip Express Ticket - $45.

3. Catalina Baggage Handlers - something like $8. Alternative is you can haul your gear 1/2 mile.

4. Air - something like $6/fill - 3 fills = $18.

5. Food - easy $20 for not very much - you also get to walk a long way to get it

6. Locker to store stuff you need to keep secure - a couple of bucks.

7. Shower - if you want one, you pay for it.

8. Bathroom - yes, but you have to walk.

9. A place to warm up - not likely.

10. Somebody to help you with your gear - dream on.

It adds up to an easy $90-100 with no amenities.
