Santa Barbara Island-Peace Dive Boat-June 6, 2020-(Experienced OW divers and above)

Join Channel Islands Dive Adventures on our trip to Santa Barbara Island aboard the Peace Dive Boat

Santa Barbara Island has some excellent dive sites year round. On this trip we will be joining the Sea Divers, diving some of the more advanced dive sites around the island. This will not be a trip to see the sea lions that SBI is known for. This trip will be to dive the deeper less dived sites that SBI has to offer. SBI also usually has better visibility and warmer water then some of the other islands.

Trip Highlights

 

Santa Barbara Island is very diverse with caves, underwater arches, pinnacles and rocky reefs plus there is a variety of aquatic creatures and healthy kelp forests. Some of the good dive sites are Arch Reef where you will find purple hydrocoral, Sutil Pass (20’-70’ deep) next to Sutil Island which is a 300’ rock with its kelp forests and bat rays during the summer, Shag Rock (30’-70’ deep) with its rocky reefs that are great for hunters looking for halibut, fish or lobsters and Black Caverns (60’-100’ deep) which is favorite advanced dive site for its caves and caverns with plenty of room between the floor and the ceiling.

For this trip we plan to visit some of the better deeper sites. There is much to see and do for the photographer, sightseer and hunter so why not come out and join us!
