Fourth of July weekend, Southern Channel Islands
06/30/2016 - 07/04/2016
Our annual “Fourth of July Trip” leaves Santa Barbara at 10pm on Thursday, and returns around 5 pm on Monday. If the weather cooperates we will be diving San Clemente and Santa Catalina Islands for the first three days, and then will travel to a northern island (Santa Barbara, Santa Cruz, or Anacapa) for the last day. To see pictures from previous trips in our gallery, click here.
We have chartered the Vision, flagship of the Truth Aquatics fleet since 1974. This is a fantastic trip and we would love to have you join us! The Sea Landing Dive Center is located within steps from the Truth Aquatic vessels for convenient equipment rental (tanks and weights are not provided on-board). See more details “Preparing for your Channel Islands Trip” on our Currents page. Marine Biologist Kristy brings her microscope to show divers silicious spicules and pumping pedicilaria– the colors on marine invertebrates are amazing up close!

INSURANCE: We strongly encourage purchasing Divers Alert Network Travel Insurance. They off competitive rates, and your money goes to a fantastic program. Most divers-in-the-know also have DAN Dive Accident Insurance. Which requires an Membership. Family Membership is $55 annually, or $25 for Individual Membership. We have the Preferred level, but you could go Standard, which costs $30 per person. If you have the opportunity to use my referral number, we get points: 1403373. DAN has helped many of our guests (including ourselves) recoup money for medical expenses and lost dives (from ear infections, etc); unfortunately, we have also seen a few divers need helicopter rides to a decompression chamber. The thought is that insurance gives you the ability to listen to symptoms which otherwise you might ignore.
