Oil Rig Dive this Saturday
is something about the oil rigs that bring out the adventurer in all of
us. These mysterious structures can be seen from shore and reach hundreds
of feet down into the open ocean. Regular people don’t even consider
swimming around them let alone under them. Divers are not regular people
though. Come join us on a true advanced adventure dive as we do 2 dives
at the famous oil rigs. Located off Long Beach, the Ellen, Elly,
and Eureka rigs are truly a must-dive. The Eureka is the deepest sitting
in about 720 feet of water while the Elly and Ellen are in about 260 (yes, both
are WAY past recreational limits.) Not just anyone can swim out the nine
miles and dive these huge structures. They sit in federal waters so you
need special permission. Luckily we are special.
Diving the rigs requires great buoyancy and is like no other. The legs
are home to normally reef-bound animals and plants and the majority is seen in
the first 80 feet. From sea lions to nudibranchs these legs have it
all. Schools of fish are known to circle the legs and many open water
species can also be found making appearances. Be wary, currents can be
strong and the viz can be 10 feet one day and a 100 feet the next. You
can find shelter from the currents among the beams and cross-beams.
Navigating the legs is done completely naturally since the metal will mess with
your compass. The boat does not anchor so all divers should be equipped
with a surface marker buoy in the unlikely event that they get separated from
the group. The dives are considered advanced, so keep that in mind when
booking. If you have any questions, feel free to call the shop.
These tickets will go fast.

little marvels have taken the scuba-photography world by storm. They
are super-easy to use, compact, and take amazing underwater pictures and
videos. They are so small and light that divers strap them to their
heads and "record" all their interaction with marine-life. Your whole
dive is recorded and your hands are free to control your buoyancy.
