I know there are significant variables like weather, wind, etc., but you have to plan, so:

How many miles per day do you plan for on average on an ocean tour, like going around Catalina island?

Without significant stops to fish, dive, or whatever?

With significant stops to fish, dive, or whatever?

Different when the day calls for a 20-26 mile plus open ocean channel crossing?

Different if you plan to sail part of the way (like in a Hobie Adventure Island)?

Thanks for sharing your experience.

If you are planning on a lot of stop, figure about 2 mph average. Very few stops? Figure about 3.5 mph. These are just from my personal experience. Don't forget to factor in currents and wind. Also, whether you use turbo flippers or regular flippers may make a slight difference.
