Channel Islands Dive Adventures mission is to offer well organized dive trips to unique and interesting destinations with a dive/travel guide present, to help foster new friendships with other like minded divers and above all to promote safe and fun diving. read more.
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.
Coming up for the weekend of September 12th-14th is the SoCal Shootout put together by Bluewater Photo. This is a local photo comp for all level divers and photographers with lots of cool prizes including some boat trips CIDA has donated so get sign-up and get out diving!
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.

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!

PCH Scuba & CIDA are now working together as partners. This is something new to the dive industry and can only be a win/win for everyone. CIDA & PCH Scuba both have discounts on local SoCal trips for sponsoring clubs and military personnel. Just mention CIDA the next time you are in PCH Scuba for an awesome deal/discount on whatever you decide to buy there. Looking for a class, dive gear or trip than give PCH Scuba a try!
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 .
