The expected return time will be around 7:30pm, however it depends on weather, water conditions, dive times, etc. Always allow for the unexpected! The average surface water temperature in San Diego in December is 59 degrees. Water temp can drop significantly at depth, so bundle up accordingly. At a minimum, wear a 7mm wetsuit or drysuit, hood, booties and gloves.

The Humboldt, is a 45′ custom dive boat, and can hold 22 divers, however we are limiting this trip to 16 divers. Divers will enjoy hot soup and warm beverages between dives, and there is a fresh hot water shower on board.

The boat provides tanks (low pressure steel 85s) and weights. You may bring your own tank if you prefer, please email Waterhorse and let them know beforehand. Nitrox tanks provided for an extra charge and must be reserved in advance. You provide all other gear. Please remember to bring a valid Nitrox certification card along with your standard certification card.

For those who enjoy the mystery and excitement of wreck diving and those for enjoy seeing the uniqueness and diversity of life during night dives this will be an amazing experience to get the best of both worlds! On this mission, everyone’s a “Red Shirt”. We look forward to seeing you on the Yukon for an adventure!

ABOUT THE YUKON

The HMCS Yukon is a Canadian Mackenzie Class Destroyer. At 366′ feet in length, the Yukon is one of California’s largest wrecks accessible by divers and is the most intact wreck divers can visit.

She was intentionally sunk in July of 2000 by the San Diego Oceans Foundation as part of the artificial reef project, known as Wreck Alley. An abundance of entry and exit holes were cut into her to increase accessibility as well as diver safety. Penetration is readily available for those with the proper certifications. However, there is plenty to see on the exterior including both forward and aft gun turrets.

Unfortunately, the sinking of her was never executed. The night before her sinking, water entered the holes cut low to the waterline and shortly after midnight, her bow headed for the bottom. She lies on her port side in about 100′ of water with an average minimum depth of about 75 feet along the starboard side.


WHAT IS A “RED SHIRT

For those of you unfamiliar with the nomenclature term “Red Shirts” refer to characters on “Star Trek,” primarily Security Officers, that would beam down to a planet with the “away party”. Unfortunately these characters would generally be the first to startle a local life form and as a result would be removed from existence by said life form… essentially, they were always the first to die.

We anticipate that all “Red Shirts” will return safely from this mission. We are using this term in a comical manner to express that this dive event is to be considered a more advanced and difficult dive.

ADDITIONAL RESOURCES

Tipping
Gratuities are not included in the trip pricing. Dive crews work hard to make our dive adventure safe and enjoyable. If you feel the crew does a nice job, we ask that you give them a tip for their service. The rule of thumb is 10% to 20% of the trip cost.

The City of Los Angeles declared February 24, 1990, as Gene Roddenberry Day in recognition of his many extraordinary achievements. To celebrate the 15th anniversary of Gene Roddenberry Day, we will be eating at one of Gene Roddenberry’s favorite restaurants in Hollywood.

This will be an informal event and not a hosted party. Rod Roddenberry will make reservations for himself and his family. He  is welcoming anyone interested to make their own reservations. While he will be sitting at his own table, he will gladly make himself available to chat with any and all who attend.  After dinner, we plan to take a walk along the renowned Hollywood Walk of Fame and will stop at Gene Roddenberry’s star for a group photograph.

Stay tuned for restaurant name, location, and how to make reservations to join us for this adventure!
