I loved the hot shower and hot tub options after coming out of California's winter water. The dive master provided a very thorough briefing on the dive site so we knew how to safely navigate it best. They were incredibly helpful and attentive. The whole day was a truly wonderful experience!

This is a very solid operation they have running. They fill tanks on the boat so only one tank is needed, the food served is always excellent, the crew is friendly and professional and the captain is very knowledgeable of the dive sites.

The captain and crew never disappoint a great day of diving. I brought a friend who was just certified in open water. The crew was very accommodating and processional. My dive buddy was given extra weight because of buoyancy challenges. I had a problem with my personal dive computer. The captain made no hesitation to loan me a computer and... More

The Spectre Dive Boat crew were super helpful and this made our three dives successful. We rented full gear and equipment from Spectre and when I felt that the BCD provided me was too small (XXS), they immediately exchanged it to XS without making me feel bad about it. The instructions that the Dive Master and Captain gave about all... More

The Spectre Dive boat was even better than I had hoped! My dive buddy canceled on me at the last minute but I decided to go anyway. I easily found a dive buddy and the crew was so welcoming. The weather conditions were rough the day we went diving, but Captain Nate took us to Santa Cruz and found a... More

Been on 3 trips so far all of them excellent, Capt. Nate finds the best dive sites he can for which conditions allow and his knowledge of the dive sites helps make the dives more enjoyable. His crew rocks, I am a new diver so I need a bit more help than a seasoned one and they are friendly and... More

Got the chance to dive the Spectre boat this weekend (Easter Sunday) and the rumors are true... they serve hot BBQ for lunch. The crew was exceptional and very accommodating to all the divers. We did two dives on the frontside of Anacapa (Portuguese Rock and Oasis) and then headed to the backside of the island for our last dive... More

A great trip! The captain found the best dive sites for the given conditions. The crew members were all helpful and friendly. Each dive site provided unique and interesting things to see. The food was excellent, from breakfast burritos as we left the dock to fantastic BBQ chicken for lunch to freshly baked brownies with ice cream delivered to the... More
