    San Diego charter?

    I called one charter outfit in San Diego. They said they deal with RBs but they didn't have the required fitting to fill my megalodon O2 tanks

    Someone on scubaboard suggested it was only 100ft I should just dive OC
    Please can someone tell me of a reasonable RB friendly charter operator in San Diego so I can visit my old ship the Yukon. I sailed on her for almost 7 years, I should go for a visit. I will probably drag a couple of RB buddies along as well. Anyone want to join me? When is best time to go?
    Cheers,

    Dave....

    You are kidding right ? You expect some shop in San Diego to know how to fill a tank?

    For gas fills you go to SDUA SDUA Home Page

    For boat go get the Goby -- it's a small fast boat -- takes 4 --

    Re: San Diego charter?

    yeah, OC...

    I am going to be in SD the first week of October, and have a couple of possible options, guess a couple of new charters are coming on line soon. need to see which ones pan out (report from scubanimal here on RBW), I can keep you in the loop if you like.

    i planned on going out to the Yukon as well. if you're still around then the company would welcome.

    Best time, no idea, going cuz I'll be there with nothing to do but dive!!!

    hoppyinca

    BTW, no one that I have contacted made it sound as if it would be easy... Right now I am planning on trans filling my spheres due to no VIP/ Hydro for the LDS (inconel spheres)...

    Re: San Diego charter?

    There are only a couple RB divers in the San Diego area, and no charter that supports them, they may allow them but they don't provide O2 fills or sorb. As Joel said Goby is by far the best charter operation in town.

    Send me a PM before you come and I'll help you set stuff up here.

    OK if you want to do something in September let me go find a boat for us. I will join in. As to gas .... don't sweat it. i will jack a cupla set's of doubles to whatever we need them to be and transfill.

    Give me some dates you want off board and I will search out something.

    Cool, I'll check with the others (and travelocity) and get some dates.

    I knew doubles were good for something

    Re: San Diego charter?

    If you need sorb while in San Diego, Aqua Tech is the place to go. They stock it by the truck load- one time a guy who worked there showed me an entire shipping container full. They sell a LOT of it to the commercial dive folks.

    San Diego Scuba Diving - Divers Gear Equipment Southern California - Dive San Diego

    They are about as full service as a dive store gets. They supply initial OW, full throttle commercial, and military- and everything in between. They have several dozen antique helmets/ hard hats on display in the store and there’s even an honest-to-God bathyscaphe on the roof. Definitely worth a visit for just the ‘gee whizz’ factor for any traveling diver. I’d give them a call to see about O2 support.

    I used Aqua Tech when I was down in San Diego in March and they were helpful and were able o fill my Inspo tanks no problem.

    If ou guys are doing a large enough boat, I would love to come down to SD that week.
