Charter Boat Diving in California

Why Boat Diving?

Some of the best diving comes from a boat, which is generally the only way to get out far enough to experience the best in visibility & marine encounters. So, unless you like to fin out & get some exercise, your best bet is paying a little extra & taking a Charter Boat. They'll also help to insure the dive goes smoothly & offer amenities you'll enjoy. As well, it's really the only way for a Group to experience the dive together.

Take a look at our list of available reputable charter operations for most of California & give them a call. Also take a look at our upcoming dives & see if you can make one!
