From the captain, to the dive masters, to the person serving our food. The service was exceptional, and it was such a great experience aboard the spectre. The Jacuzzi is perfect for recovering from a cold dive. I've been before, and I'll keep coming back.

I don't typically dive from dive boats. Spectre is exemplary in value, service and competence. I am already planning my next trip. Thanks for a great day.

On a lark, I added a couple of days to a business trip to Malibu to dive. The folks at Malibu Divers (another great group) set me up with Calboat Diving. Not knowing a soul and a little unsure of how to even get to...More
