Special Expedition Southern California Diving June 10-13

Every once in a while Horizon Charters puts together a dive expedition that takes you to places not normally seen in Southern California. This is one of them. Rediscover Santa Barbara, San Nicholas and SW end of San Clemente with us this June and experience California diving as it used to be, learn more here.

This expedition not only offers some of the best diving So. California has to offer, but what many consider is absolutely world class, locations we only offer to a select few because they are so unique and pristine. Please be an experienced advanced open water diver or better for this expedition.

At our dive sites you’ll scuba dive through a wonderland of sunlight, filtered by a kelp canopy of thin green-yellow splinters that illuminate the fish  below. In this scuba wonderland you’ll dive with Calico Bass and Kelpfish, see swirling groups of Sardines, almost invisible against the blue sky above, and feel the slight surge that rocks the entire kelp forest gently back and forth. It is scuba diving heaven.

Dominating the scene are columns of giant kelp and rocky reefs and walls carpeted in short palm frond kelp and clusters of red algae and speckled with sponges, anemones, gorgonian and deep-water hydrocoral. Dropping down only halfway to the reefy bottom below you can navigate to shore, suspended quietly among the towering plants. Join us today!
