What will you see & tips:

Long Beach Oil Rigs, Eureka, Elley & Ellen - The oil rigs offer extremely unique structure for diving with long columns stretching into the depths. Their location and structure often attract pelagics like Mola Mola. The rigs themselves are covered with marine growth, beautiful anemones, metridians, and more. They are also home to a variety of fish, scallops and more.

NOTE: This is an advanced dive due to depths and possible current. You MUST have advanced open water or higher certification.

About the Boat:

  • The Pacific Star is a 65 X 22 foot dive vessel
  • The bunk room holds 6 single bunks and 6 double bunks in 5 private staterooms and 8 single bunks and 4 double bunks in a common sleeping area, all with privacy curtains and reading lights

Gear Rental:

Bring your own gear, or make sure you rent from a local shop ahead of time -- If needed, the boat can provide tanks, or you can rent an underwater camera from Bluewater Photo - just ask!
