|Anacapa July 8th on the Raptor - photos and report|

this is a small, fast boat (no kitchen or bunks) with very little room on it, which actually didn't bother me that much, because you spend very little time on the boat. Time to anacapa is very short, and surface intervals are short (gate times strictly enforced). This is a good boat to take if you want 3 quick dives, and an early return to the dock (leave at 8AM, back by 3PM). No compressor on board, they provide steel 85's. The DM Kathy is very nice and helpful. donuts/coffee provided for breakfast, and self-serve tuna/mayo & bbq pulled pork sandwiches, watermelon and brownies for lunch. $115 for 3 dives.
Landings cove was nice, but the 2nd and 3rd dive sites were pretty barren imho. Both were on the north side of anacapa.
Vis was a murky 25ft. 3 dry dives in my drysuit, yippee!
dive #1 (landings cove)
dive #2 (winfield scott)
dive #3 (near winfield scott)
enjoy the photos! Scott
