Annual Pre-Scuba Show Dive
“A two-tank Oil Rig dive before the Long Beach Scuba Show”
Join us for one of southern California’s most unique and exciting blue-water dive adventures! This 2-tank oil rig dive is on the “Pacific Star” out of San Pedro. We will dive one of the local Oil Rigs “Eureka” or “The Twins” (Elly & Ellen). 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.
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.
6:30am – Boarding
7:00am – Departure
1:30pm – Expected return
Breakfast, snacks and beverages included!
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 Long Beach Scuba Show 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!
