DIVE BOAT: Humboldt (Waterhorse Charters)
We are changing things up this year and chartering a boat for our 7th annual Comic-Con kick off dive in San Diego. Join Rod Roddenberry and Roddenberry Adventures for two exhilarating dives on the Humboldt (Waterhorse Charters). We will explore the mysterious Ruby E and Point Loma’s underwater kelp forest.
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. 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. Gear can be rented in advance from Waterhorse Charters in advance (at least 72 hours prior to trip date).
If you have any questions regarding this dive trip, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and put Comic-Con Dive in the subject.
The landing for Waterhorse Charters and the Humboldt is located on Mission Bay harbor near the Hyatt Islandia. Click here for map and directions.

Gene Roddenberry, The Creator of Star Trek, also known as “The Great Bird of the Galaxy” passed away in 1991. His son Eugene “Rod” Roddenberry, Jr. was only 17 years old. As a teenage, he never knew the impact his father had on the world, but as a man he’ll find out.
Trek Nation, is a feature-length film documenting Rod’s trek across America to understand who his father was through the touchstones Gene left behind: His Friends, His Family, His Work, and His Influence. Including surprising, revelatory conversations with actors, fans, NASA personnel, entertainment-industry leaders and other prominent figures, Trek Nation is a film that explores one of life’s most universal stories – the discovery of a parent.

WHAT: Roddenberry Adventures Ruynon Canyon Hike
WHERE: Runyon Canyon in Los Angeles, CA
WHEN: Sunday, July 26, 2015, hike from 10:00am – 12:00pm, lunch after hike
NOTE: Rain or Shine
Join Rod Roddenberry and the Roddenberry Adventures team for a morning Runyon Canyon hike to explore some of the best hiking trails in Los Angeles, and enjoy breathtaking views of the city and canyon.
We will meet at the gate just beyond 1870 Runyon Canyon Rd. to begin our hiking adventure. There are several scenic overlook points in Runyon Canyon that offer amazing views of city. On a clear day you can often see from downtown Los Angeles to Venice Beach and beyond.
This is a moderate-difficult hike, and will take approximately two-hours. We will be taking an off trail path that has numerous inclines and boulders through rough terrain. Strollers and other wheeled carriers are not recommended. Pets welcome! We will begin the hike at 10:00am and should return around 12:00am. Make sure you have a good set of running shoes when visiting Runyon Canyon as the terrain is steep and unpaved in many areas. After the hike we will grab some lunch at a nearby restaurant (everyone will be responsible for paying for their own lunch). If you have any questions about this event contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to seeing you at this Roddenberry Adventures event!
There is little-to-no parking available at Runyon Canyon so pay attention to the signs posted and park where you are allowed or you may get ticketed.
There is usually plenty of parking nearby on Curson Place a few blocks west of Vista near Wattles Garden Park. You can walk through the Wattles Park walkway to our meeting location. Wattles Garden Park pin point map.
The hike will begin promptly at 10:00am. We will meet at the gate near 1870 Runyon Canyon Road to begin and end our adventure.
Runyon Canyon is a 160-acre park in the heart of everything, and is a stone’s throw away from the historic Hollywood strip and other amazing Los Angeles landmarks.
Runyon Canyon offers some of the best hiking trails in Los Angeles and breathtaking views of the city.
