1 BOAT OPTION
Southern California’s Channel Islands are constantly rated one of the top ten dive destinations by the major dive publications every year. Your adventure begins with an early morning departure form either Long Beach or Ventura Harbor. From there you will take a short ride to either Catalina or Anacapa Island, where you will experience Southern California diving at its best. All boat trips include air, snacks and drinks.
2 BEACH OPTION
Beach diving is the economical way to dive in Southern California. You will experience Redondo Beaches Veterans Park. This park was built specifically for SCUBA Diving. The stairs are a bit shorter than a standard stair making it easier for divers to go up and down with their gear. With its sandy bottom divers will find it similar to the pool when doing their skills. We do suggest that you be comfortable with surf entries and that you are also used to swimming in the ocean. Beach Option depends on Weather and Your Dive Skills – Your Instructor will make a final decision.
3 CALIFORNIA DIVER OPTION
The best of both worlds. It will prepare you for real California Diving. One day boat diving/ or Catalina Dive Park and one day beach diving.
4 OVERNIGHT BOAT OPTION
Get the opportunity to get in 6 dives over one weekend on Anacapa or Santa Cruz Island! Go up to Ventura harbor and sleep on the boat Friday night, complete three dives on Saturday, go out to dinner with your new dive buddies and instructor and get another 3 dives in on Sunday. Free parking, breakfast, snacks, BBQ lunch and hot fudge sundaes all included! Oh, and did we mention there is a Jacuzzi on board?
