Testimonials

“I don’t typically dive from dive boats. Spectre is exemplary in value, service and competence. I am already planning my next trip. Thanks for a great day.” —Dave F.


“My buddy and I came down for 3 days of diving, and we had a great time on the boat. I have been on many dive boats and the crew of the Spectre has got to be one of my favorite, they are extremely friendly and helpful, they are always willing to help you out and they take their job seriously, but they look like they have a fun time doing it. Their site briefings are amazing, you can tell that all of the crew actually dive the sites that they bring you to, their knowledge and explanation of each site made each dive more enjoyable.” — Todd P.


“On a lark, I added a couple of days to a business trip to Malibu to dive. The folks at Malibu Divers (another great group) set me up with Calboat Diving. Not knowing a soul and a little unsure of how to even get to Ventura on the PCH, I arrived nervous. That lasted less than a minute as I was welcomed on board for the night. After three dives the next day (life changing…swimming with Harbor Seals…my first California kelp crawl), they invited me back for another night and another day of diving. Nate, the Capitan, gave very thorough and enjoyable briefings before every dive. Garrett cooked breakfast and lunch, and the food was great. Grant kept an eye on us while we were in the water. They’re the best crew I’ve had on a dive boat. I’ll be back with the rest of the family soon. Thanks guys!” — James B.


“I’ve been diving from the Spectre since the 90’s and I still love it. Great crew. Terrific food. Always a fun crowd. And then there’s the hot tub on the way back! I wish it wasn’t quite so pricey, but it’s on par with other boats. Can’t wait til next time.” — Denise M.


“This boat has an amazing crew that I love diving with. Not to mention the food is amazing. This crew really goes above and beyond to make sure your trip is everything you wanted it to be. I cannot wait to get back on this boat.” – Grundy S.
