Famous for its gorgeous above-water terrain, Big Sur also offers breathtaking underwater sightseeing. Truth Aquatics is one of the few dive companies venturing into the pristine waters of the Big Sur Coast. Largely untouched by any vessels, Big Sur is teeming with giant ling cod, brilliant vermillion rockfish, and ghostly underwater forests of white matridiums and hydrocoral. The opportunity to find reefs never before seen by divers, in their most undisturbed state. Potentially large swells and wind make Big Sur most suitable for intermediate to advanced divers. Advanced Open Water divers with diving experience is HIGHLY recommended. Truth Aquatics only does this tour for a total of 3 weeks and only in June so this is a chance to see things you might not ever be able to see!
Beautiful Ocean diving in kelp forests, aquatic mammals, and great cold water diving. Since no islands to hide behind, could have current and surge so want to have good dive skills. These dives are all self-guided, BUT we are bringing our own Instructor and Divemaster to guide these dives for your safety and enjoyment.
This is a LIMITED LOAD trip so maximum capacity on the boat is reduced from 40 to 26. This trip is for 4-5 dives each day on Thursday thru Saturday including night dives those days, and 2 dives on Sunday. The cost of the trip does not include tank and weights. If driving, can bring your own gear rented from our shop. We have info on a shop there if want that also. IF you are in need of other gear, Central Oregon Diving, LLC’s rental price is $30 per dive day for full set up (HALF-PRICE). Dive boat crew tips are not included in this price. There are opportunities to dive 15+ dives in this 4 day period, so great chance to log some different experiences and DIVE!
The Liveaboard boat is THE VISION through TRUTH AQUATICS. If there are any special dietary needs, please let me know so that we can let them know ahead of time. They want to accommodate your individual needs. We dove this boat 2 times previously and are very happy with the crew and boat.
There is a wide variety of sea creatures to see. Diving through the kelp forest was like diving through a corn field. There were some unusual creatures that were spotted including a Cormorant which looks like a duck. Beautiful orange Garibaldi, tons of brittle stars covering the floor bottom, a small horn shark, spotted scorpionfish, jellyfish, sheephead fish, tons of kelp and rockfish in various colors, spiny lobsters, crabs and much more aquatic life can be seen. We have seen sea lions swimming with us and it was common at night and in the morning to also see dolphins and sea lions at the surface. The gorgeous sunrises and sunsets on the boat were very impressive.
