I feel our California dive fleet's prices are very reasonable compared to warm water destinations. That being said I feel the prices have increased dramatically over the past few years. I am very dissapointed in our local diving community. I have had numerous open boats cancelled this year due to lack of interest. I was going to dive a open boat last Saturday and Sunday on the Conception. The trip was cancelled due to a lack of interest and was reschedueled as a 2 day island hike. Very dissapointing. I think everyone (divers and boat owners) are taking a hit from this economy. Thanks
