As many of our Divers know, there are plenty of great diving opportunities right along our coast. But, the closer you are to shore, the lower visibility can be, and nobody likes long surface swims. So, what’s the answer to expanding your diving locations? A kayak! Get to places you can’t easily reach from shore, and places the dive boat don’t go, by setting up a kayak for Scuba Diving. Here, we demonstrate water entry and exit off of a kayak. Stay tuned for more kayak diving fun from Channel Islands Scuba!
