I learned to dive with the awesome team at Ocean Safari in July '12 and have been addicted since. My favorite dives so far have been at San Clemente and Cortes Bank, but on our most recent trip to Catalina I was amazed by the clear waters and rich life in the kelp forest at Arrow Point. Diving the oil rigs is the perfect combination of my love of diving and architecture. Outside of California I've dived in Hawaii and Hornby Island, BC. Looking forward to diving the rest of the world. ...

Brea, CA

I certified with Ocean Safari at the age of 14 and have loved diving ever since. In my 15 years of diving, I have only dived with OS. You can call me a diehard OS fan. I did my first overseas trip with Gabe in 2013 to Indonesia and LOVED it. Diving has given so much to me; friends, life long memories, a dive family, and the opportunity to see the world in a whole different way. I even met my best friend and dive buddy on one of my first dive trips, we have been diving together ever since and I was even there for her underwater proposal!  Although I don't get to dive as much as I want to, I day dream about it all the time. Oh how I love the smell of wet suits and the bone cold chilling California waters. No really, I do. Some of my best adventures in life were with the Ocean Safari dive team. When you get a chance, as me about the hike and the bee hive, the coldest dive at San Miguel, the chase for hammer heads, how I survived a "shark attack", or the night dive in Indo where I learned to ALWAYS carry a dive knife.  I received a new GoPro as a present last year and I hope to capture some amazing adventures soon. I currently work for Discovery Science Center as their Volunteer Services Manager and I am loving every single moment of it. If you have never been, hit me up!  I have a Criminology, Law, & Society degree from UCI and am currently pursuing my MBA with a emphasis on organizational leadership.  Once I get a breather from school my goal is to dive as much as I can. See you underwater! ...

Known as the quiet one, Eko has been with Ocean Safari Since 2012. Packed with big paws and a bigger heart, Eko is always greeting people with that smile of his. Although Eko is pretty fit, don't make fun of his weight because he's sensitive about it. You can catch him at the shop following Andy around so be sure to say hi. ...

I started diving in my first year of high school and started off in Ocean Safari. It's been almost 6 years and it is still the one of things I love doing the most. College has got me on a bit of a hiatus and all I can think of is "Damn, when's the next time I can go diving"  ...

Eric Anderson

Scotts Valley, CA

I've been diving since January 2013 thanks to my wife who got me certified for my 25th birthday. I have always had a passion for the water though, and I spent all of my childhood in the creeks and rivers near my hometown. I served 5 years in the USMC Infantry and am now a father, a full time student and work part time at Hallcrest Vineyards here in the Santa Cruz Mountains. I made my first trip to the Channel Islands in November of 2013 with my father-in-law. After 4 days on the Peace I was addicted and had to get back. I made a trip to Santa Rosa Island with Ocean Safari on March 9th of this year and enjoyed diving with this great group of experienced divers. Gabriel was very inviting to my brothers and I and we had a great time with his group. We have signed up for the June 1st trip to San Miguel and can't wait to get back on board the Peace and experience what San Miguel has to offer.   ...
