Begg Rock and San Nicolas Island are awesome dives!
Come enjoy some great diving at the Begg Rock and San Nicolas Island on Friday and Saturday July 15-16 aboard the Peace with the Sea Divers. Begg Rock is world class pinnacle 10 miles from San Nicolas Island that offers increasingly lush invertebrate life, giant sheets of encrusting purple coral, huge schools of rockfish, and walls that drop into the abyss. It is he most dramatic dive in California. Begg Rock is a Marine Protected Area.
After 2-3 dives at Begg Rock we will head to San Nicolas Island where there are many smaller offshore pinnacles with healthy kelp, lush life, and abundant fish. As you can see from the photos from last years trip there are ample photo opportunities and plenty of fish for those who want to bring some seafood. There are no MPAs at Nic, only at Begg Rock. Both Begg Rock and San Nicolas Island sit well offshore and are well fed by upwellings and currents that feed the profuse sea life.
Boarding on the Peace begins at 8PM on Thursday evening July 14 and the boat departs promptly at Midnight. We should be back at the dock by around 6PM on Saturday evening.
