I will be in LA the weekend of Saturday, February the 5th and that is my only possible day to dive. This will be my first cold water dive (I’m used to the Caribbean and Hawaii). I’ve been certified for 12 years, advanced PADI, but a newbie to California diving.

First choice- Raptor Dive to Anapaca

Other options are Spectre to Anapaca, Magician to Catalina, or Sundiver Express to Catalina.

Let me know if you are available to dive this day or have any suggestions for me.

Ep2011 - PM me and we might be able to work something out. Make you bring or rent a 7 MM and hood and gloves for diving out here and get additional weight to properly weight you against the additional buoyancy of the thick suit out here. Another great dive boat I would recommend is the Pacific Star - A little slow but roomy and great service! The swell has been intense lately so you may want to check conditions before you come to ensure the conditions will be okay else you could always take the ferry to Catalina and do some shore dives at Casino Point -

Just an fyi.. The 25th is the Catalina Harbor Clean-Up. So Catalina will be packed with divers. It is a great event, if you are interested you can go here:
