asante dive boatFor those that may not know the Asante is the old Sea Bass but with all the new improvements it is really totally a new boat. The owners, Gary Jackson and Kevin Bell have repowered it with new efficient engines and transmissions, new generator and compressor not to mention a whole bunch of other things that you will notice because they will make your trip on the Asante that much better.

They specialize in trips to the local wrecks, reefs, oil rigs and Catalina/Farnsworth. They offer limited loads to insure you have all the room you need for you and your toys such as rebreathers, doubles and scooters.  The Asante is perfect for smaller groups from open water to wreck and technical diving.  Key points to remember is that they are fast.  You will have just as much time at the dive sites and less time getting there and with a smaller group you are sure to have an EXCELLENT time on the Asnate.

All trips are scheduled for 3 dives and include continental breakfast, lunch, snacks, soft drinks and air fills.
