Join Rod Roddenberry 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 are welcome.
We will begin the hike at 10:00am and should return around 12:00pm. After the hike we may grab some lunch at a nearby restaurant (everyone will be responsible for paying for their own lunch). Make sure you have a good set of running shoes when visiting Runyon Canyon as the terrain is steep and unpaved in many areas. If you have any questions about this event contact us at email@example.com.
We look forward to seeing you at this Roddenberry Adventures event!

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.

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

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.

The Forgotten Islands are undeveloped, distant from population centers and far off any beaten path, and remote even by Indonesian standards. They are part of a remote archipelago in the southeast corner of the Moluccas (Maluku Tenggara), covering a 1,000 km long chain of islands staring at Timor and extending up to West Papua.
Diving the Forgotten Islands is an adventure for true explorers and those divers seeking out something new and unusual. Divers will find rare and unusual critters, stunning corals, spectacular deep walls, immense sea fans, opportunities for pelagic sightings and schools of larger fish such as barracuda and mackerel, as well as the chance to meet an enigmatic whale shark or elusive hammerhead.
The average temperature range in the Forgotten Islands area is from 26-30C (78-86F). These islands typically have amazing visibility and warm water around 25-30C (80-86F). A 3-5mm wetsuit is recommended. Diving depths are between 5- 30 meters and the current can range from gentle to strong. This dive adventure is suitable for intermediate to advanced divers.
Sample Cruise Itinerary South Forgotten Islands
The Arenui is Indonesia’s boutique dive liveaboard experience. The stunning two-masted wooden sailing vessel offers a taste of the local culture with all the modern conveniences of a luxury hotel, including spacious cabins, a luxury restaurant, top-deck sky lounge, and 22 staff members.
You will be responsible for booking your own travel to Indonesia. You will need to fly to Saumlaki (SXK). We would advise that you fly into Bali-Denpasar (DPS) and arrive two days before embarkation (26-April 2018) at the latest. Then the next morning you can take a local flight to Ambon (currently via Makassar). You will have to wait until nearer the time for specific details on the schedule, as local airlines tend to move times/rates quite frequently.
After disembarkation on the 10-May 2018, you can fly back from Ambon to Bali or Jakarta via Makassar (UPG). We recommend booking international flights for at least one day after disembarkation (11-May 2018), just in case there are any unforeseen delays on the return leg of the cruise.
We will work with the Arenui to assist you with booking any domestic flights and hotel stays in Indonesia. Please note, Indonesian airlines don’t usually confirm their schedules (or rates) until approximately 6 months prior to departure dates.
