August Happenings

Hi Divers,

If you haven’t heard or experienced it yet the dive conditions have been AWESOME and there is no telling how long it will continue so my suggestion if you aren’t already doing it is to get out and DIVE. Channel Islands Dive Adventures is growing and with that there are plenty of opportunities to meet new dive buddies, make new friends and have fun diving together!

CIDA has plenty of boat trips planned for all level divers and types of diving you may want to do such as photography, hunting, freediving or just plain old sightseeing. The best place to start is to look at the CIDA dive trip schedule and then call us if you have any questions or just use our simple online sales to sign-up for a trip.

Currently we are in the process of planning our local dive trips for 2015 and vacation trips for 2015 & 2016. We can’t wait to tell you about them so stay tuned and check back or to make it even better sign-up below for our newsletter.

As always Channel Islands Dive Adventures is “Striving for Different Diving”

Keep Diving, Ken Kollwitz

Weather-button217 ft.com  is a great site for all your weather forecasts and here at CIDA we use it all the time but it can be wrong! Its always good to watch the weather before a trip but sometimes we forget weather can vary from place to place and because of that here is an excellent article on “Weather and Diving”.

If your a diver and don’t have dive accident insurance, don’t kid yourself thinking nothing is ever going to happen. The one time something does happen (and hopefully it never will) will be when you are going to really hope you have dive accident insurance and that also goes for travel insurance especially if you do multiple dive trips in a year!

Either DAN or DiveAssure both offer plenty of choices depending on your needs and type of diving you like to do. Please check them both out .

San Clemente & Farnsworth

black sea bassIf you have never dived San Clemente Island, you are really missing out on some fantastic diving. The problem is there are too many fantastic walls, reefs and some wreck  to dive. Between San Clemente and the backside of Catalina (Farnsworth Bank), you can encounter some of the best diving SoCal has to offer with warmer water and great visibility.

Anacapa/Santa Cruz

sealionEither Anacapa or Santa Cruz Island are excellent locations for a day of diving and if you have never been diving in a kelp forest these are probably two of the best islands to start with. There are lots of great sites at each from easy to advanced and on this trip we will focus more on the easier sites where sealions and harbor seals will come to play with you.
