Join us for one of southern California’s most unique and exciting blue-water dive adventures. This limited load 2-tank oil rig dive on the “Sundiver Express” out of Long Beach. We will dive one of the local Oil Rigs “Eureka” or “The Twins (Elly & Ellen)” 8 1⁄2 miles off shore.
Oil Rig Diving is similar to open ocean/blue water 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, have dive insurnace (DAN or other) 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. Deeper sections of the rig are covered with large white Metridium anemones, while the shallower portions covered with vibrant strawberry anemones, brittle stars, scallops and are encrusted with mussels and home to fish, sponges, crabs, scallops, nudibranchs and much more.
Since the platforms are in open ocean you have the opportunity to see schooling fish, pods of dolphins, playful sea lions and the occasional shark or whale.
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.
