With a variety of trips throughout the Channel Islands and beyond there is always something for everyone no matter what level diver you are or what it is you like to do such as UW photography, hunting or sightseeing and we even like having non-divers join us. Give our SoCal Dive Calendar a look to see all the COOL TRIPS we offer.
We have trips to San Miguel, Santa Rosa, Anacapa, Santa Cruz, Catalina, San Nick, Begg Rock and Santa Barbara Island, Big Sur, oil rigs, wrecks and coastal dive site and you can sign-up using our simple and easy online booking system.
Looking for a dive vacation? If so, please consider one of our group trips on our Dive Vacations page and with trips planned to July 2020 there are many to choose from.

If you have never been to the event it is a weekend full of FUN TIMES in Monterey with seminars and a UW photo competition. Sounds like a great way to meet new like minded people!

CIDA has been lucky enough to work it out to have either Michael Zeigler or Todd Winner both from Immersed Imaging or Zac Areneta from Samys Camera on a number of trips throughout the year to give photo & video help & tips to those that would like to learn more about underwater photography. Check out our Dive Calendar for more info.
Please join us and take your photography to the next level!
If you’re 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. Get all the info needed to sign-up for DAN or DiveAssure here!
