Join this special dive trip aboard the Spectre Dive Boat to pay tribute to our lost loved ones on the anniversary date of the accident, Wednesday, September 2, 2020. We will travel to the M/V Conception site for our first dive, and then have 2 additional dives at Santa Cruz Island. Our day at Santa Cruz Island will end with a boat tour inside the famous "Painted Cave".

The Spectre is a friendly, fast and reliable 85' Dive Boat in Ventura Harbor. 

  • Boat Reminders: Pack light in a mesh bag or even pre-assemble your gear and leave the big roller bag in the car or at home.  Don't forget to bring your certification card, all your gear, tank and weights; no gear is provided on board. Also they have 2 releases: their Covid release online  and Dive waiver for you to fill out in advance and bring with you on board to save time.
  • Boat Location Address: Ventura Harbor 1591 Spinnaker Drive, Ventura CA 93001. (This is the building closest to the Spectre and is not the business address.)
Malibu Divers enjoys chartering trips on the Spectre Dive boat and does so almost every month throughout the year. This boat can take a maximum of 40 divers (but with Covid precautions is only taking 28!)
