April Happenings

Hi Divers,

It looks like the rain has now gone and went and tax time is past us so now there is only one thing to think about and that is-DIVE, DIVE & MORE DIVING! Now is the time to check out the CIDA schedule for local SoCal trips as well as our fun vacation trips to some cool and exciting places.

We just had our first ever 2 day photo workshop and looking at the survey results it looks like it will for sure not be the last but more than likely others will not be happening till 2016. If you look at our dive schedule you will notice it is very busy so adding another trip this year will be just too hard to do.

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 calender 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 comboNC wrecks and shark teeth adventure and our 1 of a kind Canada 1000 Islands wreck trip which is surely a trip you are not going to see anyplace else.

The Brockville area of Ontario, Canada along the USA and Canada border has gained critical acclaim as being the “World’s Best Fresh Water Scuba Diving” destination. Part of the attraction to this area is the water clarity and that there is no thermocline and with water temps in the mid 70’s during the late summer you just can’t find a more awesome place to dive century old shipwrecks with the chance to see artifacts that are scattered along the river bottom.

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 will see that in our 2015 dive schedule

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

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”.

3 Day Big Sur Coastal trip

3 Day Big Sur Coastal trip

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.

Read all the trip details here and join us for an adventure you will LOVE!

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.

North Carolina shark teeth and wreck diving adventure-July 4-11, 2015

21428_4553287730451_1954074923_nDiving for megladon shark teeth is something you have to do at least once with most people getting hooked going back year after year as is the case with this trip. The water is 82 degrees with visibility running about 40′ + ft. and to go along with looking for shark teeth there are also plenty of wrecks to dive and no passport required. This is the 4th trip back to NC for CIDA and the reason is simple-no one can get enough of it!
