*CIDA only trip-full charter

Most all of our CIDA only trips will have a photo professional on board to give one on one help to anyone who would like it. These will not be photo only trips but we have had very good luck with no drama and everyone getting along. The photo professionals we will have on board are (MZ)-Michael Zeigler , (TW)-Todd Winner and  (ZA)-Zac Araneta.


You are responsible for all your own equipment, including tank & weights (unless otherwise noted) and for it to be operating properly on all Channel Islands Dive Adventures dive trips. Rental gear is not available on the dive boats, unless it was reserved in advanced.

No matter where you live or dive the weather and sea conditions can change very quickly and because of this Channel Islands Dive Adventures highly recommends having a safety signal tube on every dive, dive accident insurance such as; DiveAssure or DAN (Divers Alert Network) and up to date on any training you may need.


Booking Spots on trips

Please remember, once you have paid for a spot on a trip, that spot is yours and is no longer available to anyone else. If you cannot make it and we have been notified, we will try our best to fill the spot, but ultimately you are responsible for your spot
