Offshore Oil Platforms

Going out to the offshore oil rigs is just a short drive from home, we have trips going out around 35 miles about once a month from April till around November. Visibility can be as high as 100' on some days. These trips are all day events and we will have 3 dives while we are out. We meet at Bluff Landing Marina in Flour Bluff early in the morning to head out and get back mid afternoon.

What Boat?

The boat we use is the Top Cat II with Captain John Barrera. The boat is a custom designed 30' HydroCat offshore power catamaran that is very clean and well maintained. It has plenty of space for divers and their gear.

What is there to see?

We keep the dives within 100 ft and shorter than an hour, but that gives you plenty of time to see some amazing sites. Some of the underwater life that can be expected are: snapper, amber jack, anglefish, lookdowns, angel fish, blennies, octopus and many more. If you are lucky you might even see dolphins or whale sharks!

Where do I go?

We meet at Bluff Landing Marina between 5:30 and 5:45 in the morning. With luck we are on our way out by first light.
