3 Day Scuba Diving Adventure for Advanced Divers
Join your trip organizers Gayle Van Leer and Janet Pinterits for a three day scuba diving adventure to the best of the California Southern Channel Islands. These ever popular twice annual trips have been running for over 20 years and were originally hosted by the Dive Animals Scuba Club. These days everyone is welcome however we do restrict the trips to those that are at minimum Advanced Certified. We get a mix of photographers, tech divers and as well as those that just want to drift around and enjoy the scenery. One of our favorite destinations is the world class kelp forest of San Clemente Island we are lucky to have right in our own backyard. Nearly any film you have seen about California kelp forests was probably filmed there. Award winning photographer and iMAX film producer Howard Hall calls it one of the top dive spots in the world.
Other destinations include Santa Barbara Island, Catalina Island, and if conditions permit, we could venture to Cortez Banks. We decide before departure where we are going based on conditions and if the Navy has San Clemente “open” for recreational boating.
