There are two potential locations for the Roddenberry Adventures campsite. Ideally, we hope to secure the same hilltop location along the ridge as last year. See the path in red on the map below for Location #1.  If we are unable to reserve this hilltop location, our basecamp will be in Location #2.

We will update the website as soon as we secure our campsite location. Check back on Thursday, March 2nd. If you not see the update, please proceed to campsite location 1 first. Look for the white and blue United Federation of Planets Flag and a Black Jeep Wrangle. If we are not there, please proceed to campsite location 2.

Please note, cellular service is limited onsite. Please check your email and the website prior to arriving at the campgrounds for any updates. Email adventures@roddenberry.com or call Jennifer Black 888-763-6661 if you need additional directions to campsite.

Annual Pre-Scuba Show Dive
“A two-tank Cinco de Mayo Oil Rig dive”

Oil Rig Dive

$109.99 Early Bird Discount if Booked by March 17th.

Join us on Cinco de Mayo for one of southern California’s most unique and exciting blue-water dive adventures! This is a limited load 2-tank oil rig dive on the “Pacific Star” out of San Pedro. We will dive one of the local Oil Rigs “Eureka” or “The Twins” (Elly & Ellen).

Oil Rig Diving is similar to open ocean diving and is considered an advance dive due to unpredictability of conditions and “bottomless” structure at depths between 260- 720 feet.  You must have an Advanced Certification or higher, and be comfortable with this type of diving to join us for this dive adventure.

Dive Schedule
Friday, May 5, 2017
6:15am – Arrive
6:30am – Board
7:00am – Departure
1:30pm – Expected return

Breakfast, lunch and beverages included!

Diving southern California’s oil rigs gives divers a unique mixture of reef, wreck and blue-water diving. The vertical structure provides refuge to sea lions, reef critters and pelagic fish.

Please note that oil rig diving is weather and condition dependent. We will dive a local wreck and kelp bed if we are unable dive the oil rigs. Always allow for the unexpected.

If you’re already planning on going to the Scuba Show in Long Beach or just feel like taking Friday off and jumping in the water, please join us for an exciting and fun pre-Scuba Show dive adventure.  We look forward to diving with you soon!

Please check the site for any last minute dive updates!
