What will you see & tips:

Long Beach Oil Rigs, Eureka, Elley & Ellen - The oil rigs offer an extremely unique structure for diving with long columns stretching into the depths. Their location and structure often attract pelagics like mola mola, sea lions, & cormorants. The rigs themselves are covered with marine growth, beautiful anemones, metridiums, 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!
