California Dive Adventure

October 17/18th & 19th/20th

 

California diving combines the best of both worlds-  cold water and warm water marine life!

It’s massive and lush kelp forests, provide home and refuge to the bright orange garibaldi, seals, sea otters, bass and so much more!

The surface temperature this time of year averages around 24°C, and water temperature is a balmy 15°C! Drysuits (with minimal undergarments) or 7mm wetsuits are recommended.

The Spectre dive boat is a comfortable 85 foot aluminum boat capable of carrying 40 divers plus nine snorkelers or non-divers. There are individual dive stations for each diver with air tank refills right at the stations. Among the many features are three showers, a large hot tub, sundeck, bunks, galley, game tank, camera rinse tank, and the famous outdoor barbecues used for every lunch. The Spectre has operated continuously since 1986 by Captain Ted Cumming and now by his son Nathan. It is the favorite of California divers as well as divers from many other states and countries.

How to Get There?

Option 1: Hop in the van with us! The van will depart on October 15th and arrrive the night of October 16th with a 1 night hotel in Oregon (Included)
 
Option 2: Skip the long van ride and take a quick flight to Santa Barbara. Ventura is a 30-45 minute drive away. Ground transportation will not be provided, so you’ll need to either arrange a car rental, taxi or bus.
