Southern California Liveaboard Diving

Sand Dollar Leaving San Pedro Harbor

Your Southern California diving experience begins with booking a single or multi-day diving trip with Diving Charters Inc. aboard the Sand Dollar. The Sand Dollar travels to local dive sites such as Catalina Island, Farnsworth Bank, San Clemente Island, Santa Barbara Island, San Nicolas Islands, Begg Rock and outer banks such as Cortes and Tanner Banks, weather permitting.

Diving Charters Inc., charters the Sand Dollar for an outstanding diving experience. Your charter can be either for a Free Diving, Scuba Diving, Technical Expedition or Wreck Diving trip. The Sand Dollar can be chartered for private (closed), educational, recreational or commercial diving trips. Please see our page on chartering the Sand Dollar for additional information. However, if you are a diver searching for a specific trip, please see our trip schedule to find an available trip and booking information.
