Now that tax time is past us guess what time it is??? VACATION planning time if you haven’t already done so and you don’t always have to plan a long vacation because mini-vacations are just as good and sometime better because you can have more of them and spread them out over the year!
Either way CIDA has plenty to choose from. We still have two 3 day trips, five 2 day trips and 3 vacation trips for 2015 and we would love to have you join us on some of them. If you have never been on a 2 or 3 day trip you just don’t know what you are missing. Sure it costs more but you get much more value out of them then if you went on a bunch of single day trips. Why is this? No rushing to get the diving in because no need to get back the same day. Longer, more relaxed diving and more dives then a day trip with usually a night dive, more great meals and more time to get to know other divers. Also, lastly the chance to get to sites that are just too far away for a single day trip. There are many more reasons to join CIDA on a multi-day trip but you will have to come along on one to find out what they are!
If you have not yet been out on a CIDA trip you should get on one soon so you can see what you have been missing. Our trips are for all level divers and types of diving you may want to do such as photography, hunting, freediving or just plain old sightseeing and the best place to start is to look at the CIDA dive calendar and then call us if you have any questions or just use our simple online sales to sign-up for a trip.
We also have 3 big trips set for 2015 and they are-Belize land/liveaboard combo (warm water), NC wrecks and shark teeth adventure (warm water 80°) and our 1 of a kind Canada 1000 Islands wreck trip (warmish water 76°) which is surely a trip you are not going to see anyplace else.
One friend mentioned that Channel Islands Dive Adventures are pioneers because we do quite a number of trips that no one has ever thought about and you look at our 2015 dive schedule we think you will agree.

17 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”.
Channel Islands Dive Adventures is the proud recipient of the 2013 Divers Alert Network “Rising Star” award-Thank you DAN!
CIDA has spots reserved on this awesome 3 day trip on June 19-21, 2015. Diving the Big Sur coast can be wild, rugged and thrilling to say the least. Haven’t you driven down the Big Sur coast and wondered what beauty lies under the surface and thought “If only I could get down there with my dive gear”. If you have than you are not alone. The Big Sur coast has some of the most rugged areas and miles of coastal line that is just about non-accessible except when you are aboard the Vision.

This year is the Chamber’s 41st year of service to the Southern California diving community. While the Chamber still gets about 50% of its funding from the County, Chamber Day & Eve have become the major source of funds to keep the Chamber available to us divers 24/7/365. You can help by participating in Chamber Day, Chamber evening, The Flying Dutchman, Chamber Challenge or buying raffle tickets.

If your a diver and don’t have dive accident or travel 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 it, 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.
