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 7 a.m., explore three dive sites, then return to the dock around 4:30 p.m. New divers, seasoned divers, snorkelers, and photographers all love to dive the Channel Islands.
