Alacosta Divers located in Oakland, CA 94609

Alacosta Divers Club is a non-profit scuba and freediving club organized in 1958.

dive regularly in Monterey, Northern California, and
occasionally organize group trips to Alaska, the Galapagos Islands,
Great Barrier Reef, Fiji, Indonesia, Mexico, the Caribbean or wherever great diving, photos and fine food is
found. We try, weather permitting, to schedule at least one dive a month somewhere in Northern California.

The members of Alacosta cover the San Franciso East Bay, including Oakland, Berkeley, Orinda, Walnut Creek and beyond.

Alacosta owns 4 inflatable boats, and makes an annual Week Long Diving and "camping" trip to Catalina.

Alacosta Dive Club is organizing our yearly SCUBA trip to Catalina Island

Sunday Sept. 1 to Sunday Sept. 8, 2013

Emerald Bay Boy Scout Camp, West End, Santa Catalina Island
Every year Alacosta Dive Club organizes a trip to Catalina that is open to all certified divers who become members. We
take a chartered boat with our gear from Long Beach directly to the
Emerald Bay Boy Scout Camp (after the scouts have departed) and spend a
week diving.
A different kind of SCUBA trip.
Divers decide which two underwater sites to explore each day because we operate the club’s own 16’ Achilles inflatables. Club inflatables explore Ship Rock, Bird Rock, Eagle Reef, and even Italian Gardens.
If you’ve never dived inflatables, or are new to California diving, you
can ramp up your skills by shore diving exquisite kelp forests in
Doctor’s Cove directly from the camp’s beaches. Snorkeling is available
to non-divers, and we have unlimited access to the BSA sit-on-top
kayaks for short trips to Fisherman’s rock, Table Rock or Inspiration
Point all close by Emerald Bay.

A short hike from camp provides island solitude and amazing vista’s of the California coast from the cliffs surrounding Emerald Bay.
