TRIPS | ADVANCED DIVES- ISLAND BOAT SCHEDULE
Boat Diving Schedule for Advanced and Experienced Divers
Now that you've got that AOW card, you're cleared for some of the gnarlier, more adventurous dives off the coast of California. Farnsworth Pinnacle is a deep wall dive a couple miles off of Catalina, with vast blue vistas and dramatic drop-offs. Currents can be pretty intense, so this is recommended for physically fit divers only. DAN insurance and a healthy logbook is required on this dive.
NOTICE: The following schedule of "Specialty Boat Trips" are for Experienced Divers and/or Advanced Certified Divers or Paid Guided Divers or Advanced Students Under Direct Supervision, in other words... no beginners allowed on these more advanced level dives. Also note, if the crew or divemaster witness un-safe diving practices, you will be denied tank fills for the remainder of the day for the safety of others and yourself.
