Dive Trips

Three dives per day in the waters of Anacapa or Santa Cruz Islands

Quick Details

Take a giant stride from our deck and you are in over your head… But not by much! We anchor from a few feet deep near the island out to depths of over 50 feet. That’s where divers find the most life, light, and color. All trips depart at 7AM, boarding begins at 6AM then the Spectre returns to the dock around 4PM. We explore three dive sites. New divers, seasoned divers, snorkelers, and photographers all love to dive the Channel Islands.
