We have two dive trips targeting Farnsworth Banks in April on the Great Escape.

Farnsworth is a spectacular deep reef on the seaward west side of Catalina and is the home to the rare cold water Purple Coral. If you’ve never dove Farnsworth you are missing out on one of the best dives in the California. It’s the top of an under seamount, the top of it is fairly large area and in the 100’+ depth range. There’s one spot that gets a little shallower, but there is lots of area deeper and some sheer walls but figure you’ll be diving 100’ plus or minus. The place is teeming with life and generally has great vis.. and is covered with the rare cold water Purple coral. We’ll make our first dive the deep dive at Farnsworth, then make 2-3 shallower dives around the backside of Catalina or elsewhere. So if you’re not feeling comfortable with that Farnsworth deep dive come out anyways and make the later shallower dives.

We have two charters targeting Farnsworth in April. Weather dependent.
