Welcome to the world of diving in Monterey!

The magnificent Monterey Peninsula has been called the greatest meeting of land and sea. If you’ve never done boat diving in Monterey, don’t put it off any longer! And, when you get there, make it easy on yourself – join us on a charter boat!

The Escapade is custom built 38 foot long Canaveral dive boat and is the newest of all the dive boats in Monterey. She is the fastest of all the dive boats cruising at speeds up to 20 knots to reduce travel time to the dive sites.

Her keel makes a very stable boat that minimizes rocking in rough seas. The Escapade is Coast Guard rated for 24 divers, but only sells 16 spots, making it roomy for everyone!  Due to current Social Distancing Orders for the State of California we can only allow 8 people per boat.

The Escapade is spacious, fast, convenient, comfortable, and professionally operated with an experienced skipper, crew and dive masters to ensure your comfort and safety. Amenities include: Hot fresh-water shower, camera table, and camera wash tub.


For your safety, the captain requires that all guests on the boat be PADI Advanced Open Water (or equivalent) certified and have cold water diving experience.

Don’t have the Advanced Open Water Certification or cold water experience?   Diver Dan’s can help you with that too!  We offer the PADI Advanced Open Water Class twice a month and Discover Local Diving excursions at least every other weekend throughout the year!
