California offers some of the most spectacular recreational diving in the world and we in Southern California are blessed with a chain seven islands known as the Channel Islands; all of which offer world-class diving. Catalina, Santa Cruz and Anacapa are favorites among local divers.
Catalina Island, our closest and only populated island, offers year-round recreational activities. Its waters are highly protected and therefore offer a spectacular opportunity to experience a kelp forrest with a dense concentration of marine life in a safe environment.
The team of highly trained professionals at Ocean Adventures would like to introduce you to our unique underwater realm. We specialize in small group guided dives to maximize safety and ensure a day of unforgettable memories.
Explore California’s Underwater Realm
There are two ways to explore Southern California’s underwater realm. Diving off a boat cruising to the Channel Islands or by taking a ferry to the Catalina Island Dive Park.
You will find our boat trip schedule in our calendar. If the dates you need are not scheduled for a charter boat, we can still arrange a day of diving for you around Catalina Island’s Kelp Forest in the “Dive Park”.
Catalina Island Dive Park
The other option is Catalina Island Dive Park: We begin our journey, via the Catalina Express ferry, to the city of Avalon on Catalina Island. There we will have close access to restrooms, air fill stations and lots of great restaurants. Conditions permitting, two dives are the order of the day.
After the dives, we shed our gear, and normally have time for a leisurely stroll to downtown Avalon. There, shops and restaurants line the waterfront and offer a variety of unique gifts and culinary delights. The day ends with a ferry ride back to the mainland.
All in all a day, you will enjoy an unforgettable day few people will ever experience. Our highly trained team of professionals will safely guide you through your dives and love to share their passion for diving.
