Well, well, well,
About time I got back to this. Many, many things have happened since I last posted. So the heck with the distant past, and on to the short term past and events.
Made a business decision to have more open boats and fewer charters from dive stores. It is making a slow start, but I am hoping that it will continue to grow. With open boats I get to choose the locations we, you get to dive. Not the DM or owner of the store. My crew even commented, we are going to real dive sites again. No shit Sherlock.
Talking of good trips. Esther and Odon have a 3 day trip coming up for Memorial Day that will be fantastic. We will start out at San Clemente for 2 days and end up at Catalina, hopefully to dive Farnsworth Banks for the last day. Esther has 2 trips a year with me, and my crew fights to make sure they can go on these trips because they are so much fun. If you have not committed for this weekend call Esther and sign up, there are only a few spots left. And I guarantee you will have a great time, not to mention would class food from Chef Roberto and myself. We spend weeks planning the food for this trip. And not trip has the same food twice.
Back to the open boats for just a minute. We also offer the frequent diver program. For every 5 trips paid for at full price on open boats, the 6th is free, or $120.00 towards a higher price trip. IE a two or three day open boat in October, hunting for the wryly crustation, eatamus bugomus,
Most divers can catch with a little help from other divers, and time. Except though, the Moose Brothers. I am thinking you can take a moose to a bug hunt; you can’t make them catch a bug. Perhaps bugs are just smarter than mooseseesese? Who knows?
About time for a dive report. Once again the wind has been beating us down with some nasty crossings. The good news is: we have been getting good vis and the water is getting warmer. Last weekend we saw 3 black sea bass at Doctors Cove. Never thought we would see them there.
Hope to see you out with us soon and I promise I will try to make these posts often.
Until next time………………
