By special request, the Pacific Star is offering two of Southern California’s best dive destinations, Santa Barbara Island and Farnsworth Banks, on June 17th & 18th.

Saturday, June 17th – Board Friday night at 9:00pm for an early morning departure to Santa Barbara Island, the smallest of the California Channel Islands. SBI is well known for it’s abundance of wildlife, primarily sea birds and marine mammals. This island boasts a large rookery of California sea lions that have grown accustomed to boats and will generally come looking for divers entering the water. With typically high visibility, divers are treated to a spectacular view of the underwater life, where bright sea stars, spiny sea urchins, and brilliant orange garibaldi are common.

Sunday, June 18th – Board at 5:00am for an early departure to Catalina Island’s backside where the dive day starts on Farnsworth Banks. Farnsworth Banks is a pinnacle system which ranges from 60-130’ deep and home to the rare Allopora californica or Purple Hydrocoral. About 2 miles offshore, the visibility here often exceeds 80’. Many agree that this is one of the best dives in So Calif.

Go to Santa Barbara Island on June 17th for only $130.00 or go to Farnsworth Banks on June 18th for only $125.00. Why not book both trips, enjoy the night life at beautiful King Harbor, for only $200.00. Of course, prices are all inclusive food and air fills; Nitrox available at additional charge.
