Comments Some initial words of warning. If you don't like cold water or a more advanced dive conditions then don't bother. Blue Adventures is a very laid back operation. They were very nice and very helpful and they took their time. the dive was scheduled for 8:30. It was a five minute ride to the dive site and we were in the ater at 10:30. the good news was they promised we would be back by 1pm and we were back by 12:30 with 2 dives and a 45 minute surface interval. The divemaster dives with you. He leads you on a "tour" of the bottom but you can manuever around the area as you wish. The boat was very small even for 5 divers. We got off the boat and explored lovers beach while the crew changed our tanks out for the next dive. The second dive was neat. We dove an area called lands end. Try to ask for this dive spot. it has a small wreck and the sea lions come and swim around you. Lots of fish, eels, sea fans. Your typical pacific cold water dive. Blue adventures is an excellent operation they were very patient with the newer divers. they help you get your gear on your back. They handled my camera gear very carefully. I would defintely dive with them agian. The only down side was the very small boat.
