All Experience Levels
Catalina Diver's Supply and Hermosa Hotel
October 15-18, 2020

Ocean First returns to beautiful southern California to dive in the mystical kelp beds that are unique to this part of our country. We head to Catalina Island where adventurous divers will find a fascinating array of marine life, varied topography and dive experiences for all levels! Known for it’s crystal clear waters, Catalina promises to show you something new and different from the tropical waters of the Caribbean. Bright orange garibaldi, bat rays, calico bass, giant kelp fish, moray eels, octopus and perhaps even playful sea lions will accompany you on a wild ride through the kelp forest. The well-appointed Scuba Cat dive boat will provide a comfortable ride complete with hot water showers, complimentary snacks and drinks, and 2 wide ladders for easy loading back onto the boat.

Our hotel is the Hermosa Hotel located in the heart of Avalon, close to local restaurants and the dive shop. Catalina has so much to do in addition to great diving. This trip is perfect for non-diving family members or friends as there is plenty to keep busy if someone prefers not to dive. Sign up today.. space is limited!
