My heart goes out to anyone affected by the dive boat explosion this morning near Santa Cruz Island California. I hope you find peace during this difficult time.

Thank you to the crew of the Grape Escape for assisting in the rescue efforts!

It is truly a sad day in the dive community. I have been on the Conception several times. My heart is broken.

I was just on the Conception six weeks ago. Honestly, Truth Aquatics are a great bunch of people and a great crew, and nothing like this has ever happened before with them. I am shocked.

I am waiting for what Truth Aquatics and the Coast Guard determine.

Just read about a father, his three daughters, and their stepmother who were aboard. Tragically there are 29 more stories. Truly a sad day.
