California Diving - Far from Tropical, Close to Perfection!

California diving is unique in many ways. There is no divemaster in the water with you, the water temps are cold enough to require a wetsuit, and the conditions vary from site to site… but it known around the world to be in a class of it’s own. The Channel Islands are so diverse, you can go from semi-tropical to temperate between dives. The kelp forests and marine wildlife are outstanding, and if you haven’t dove in cold water before, this is the best place to start!
