Big Sur has always been our personal adventure environment. It is 2 1/2 hours away, virtually in our “back yard”, and to most people on earth, inaccessible. We have been leading the Big Sur SCUBA Diving Adventure into this aquatic space for over 30 years and its still holding back prizes. Our latest and most successful plot was to charter the Vision yacht and their impeccable crew to pick us up in Morro Bay and explore the aquatic environments from Cape San Martin to Pt. Sur. Over the past decade, it has been unbelievably successful. The only caveat being that if the weather is bad we will head to the southern Channel Islands out of Santa Barbara instead. It is difficult for Truth Aquatics & ASU to let an aquatic wilderness like Big Sur go untouched. Come join us in this true adventure campaign.

What should I expect about the food?

There will always be an abundance and variety of food to eat, but if you have specific food allergies or are vegan/vegetarian, please let us know so we can inform Truth Aquatics before they do their grocery shopping for the trip. They will gladly make special meals for people with special dietary needs.

What should I expect about the bunks?
The bunks all come with pillows and blankets and there is a thin vinyl covered foam mat and a privacy curtain. Most have a reading light and a small shelf. Many people will bring their own pillows from home as well as a sleeping bag or extra blankets and sheets to make their bunk more comfortable.

What should I expect about the bathroom facilities?
The main dive deck offers three bathrooms and two showers for a hot water rinse prior to or after the dive. In the bow of the boat below the kitchen, there are two common room sinks and showers for a more private shower or for shaving.

Where should I put my dive gear?
When you arrive on the boat, there will be a center island on the dive deck where there are stations for tanks. Pick a spot, assemble your BC, regulator and tank, weight belt next to tank on the ground and preferably a mesh bag with your other personal gear (mask, snorkel, fins, boots, gloves, hood, lights, stringers, etc). Wetsuits and drysuits get hung up below the dive deck down a short ladder at the back of the boat. It’s not a bad idea to bring a personalized hanger with your name on it for easy identification.

What should I expect about the diving?
The first morning there will be a general dive safety briefing. Generally speaking, you can dive as much or as little as you like. Once the boat is anchored at a site, the gates will be open for diving. Depending on conditions, the decision to stay or leave will be made. Once you come up from a dive, put your tank back in the same spot you started with and grab a red tag from the rear of the boat. By hanging the tag over your tank valve, you are indicating to the crew you need a fill.
