California Weekend Adventures

The Islands of California have so much to offer for scuba divers. The water is consistently clear, the seas are usually calm plus a wide variety of marine life awaits for Scuba Professionals of Arizona Divers’ to explore.

This dive trip will take you to the clear waters of San Clemente, Santa Barbara or Santa Catalina Island where there is beautiful, clear and normally calm waters to dive in. There are fantastic swim-thrus, ship wrecks and walls. We have chartered the very popular live-aboard dive boat the Bottom Scratcher.  Come with us!

How Much Does It Cost?

$550 per person. Non-diver rates are available when space is available - please ask!

Due to social distancing adherence, we are limiting the number of customers to 12. For that reason, we have to charge a higher price. The benefit is fewer divers on the boat and more diving! We sincerely hope you appreciate that and understand the price increase.
