The Peace Dive Boat is Southern California's destination for everything diving. The abundance of sea life at Anacapa island provides an experience that is unique to California diving. The Peace has everything, a spascious deck, a friendly crew, great food and even a hot tub!!! The Peace is based out of Ventura, California so be sure to plan accordingly when signing up for a trip!
Personal Items: Each diver or passenger should provide his/her own personal items/toiletries for their trip, (i.e., towels, bathing suits, comb, toothbrushes, toothpaste, sunscreen, etc.) Each head contains a shower with a Hair and Body Shampoo dispenser for your convenience. Paper towel and toilet paper dispensers are also provided in each head for your convenience. If you tend to get queasy, don’t forget your seasick medication! The PEACE normally carries a supply of aspirin/ibuprofen, and has a fully stocked first-aid kit in case of emergencies.
Equipment: Please be sure to bring all the necessary dive gear for your trip including tanks, weights and your 'C' Card, a Dive Computer is highly recommended. It is also recommended that you bring normal safety equipment like: Dive Alert, Safety Sausage and a Whistle. Eco-Friendly Light Sticks are required for Night Diving and can be purchased from the shop. If you need rental equipment, feel free to inquire with the shop at 1-310-398-5759.
Air / Nitrox Fills: All of our trips (unless otherwise specified) include air fills. The PEACE is able to fill all tanks, including high-pressure tanks, up to 3500 PSI. The PEACE is equipped with a DNAx Membrane System, which currently produces Nitrox blends at 32%. Because we are not blending with 100% oxygen, O2 clean tanks are NOT required. Nitrox fills are extra.
Bunk Room: The PEACE provides both single and double bunks, sleeping up to 32 people. Single bunks are provided with one pillow and one blanket. Double bunks are provided with two pillows and two blankets. Each bunk has its own privacy curtain and individual light. Passengers are welcome to bring a sleeping bag or extra pillows/blankets for their comfort. In order to keep our bunkroom dry and comfortable, no wet bathing suits, wetsuits or wet dive equipment is permitted below decks. We do have 110 outlets available in the bunk room for medical devices, like a CPAP machine. We recommend that you bring an extension cord to make sure that you can comfortably access the outlet. Please check the Bunk Assignment sheet before you settle into a bunk. We recommend that all single passengers (those traveling alone) take a single bunk and couples (or those who don't mind bunking together) take a double bunk.
Food and Beverages: All of our trips (unless otherwise specified) include food and non-alcoholic beverages. A soda machine is provided for your convenience and also dispenses filtered water. Milk, juice, coffee and other hot beverages are also available. Passengers are welcome to bring along their own alcoholic beverages. However, we request that you bring your own ice and cooler to store them in. For those passengers with special diets (i.e., vegetarian), please be sure to inform our Chef as soon as you board or first thing in the morning so that we can accommodate your dietary needs.
Storing Your Equipment: The PEACE provides tanks racks along the sides and middle section of the back deck. Dive bags and/or dive storage containers can be stored underneath the benches and along the side of the boat. If you are not sure, please ask a crew member to assist you. Spear guns and pole spears should be stored (unloaded) in the Portside and Starboard side gun racks located on the back deck. Please do not store them in the center live game tank. Please do not leave any dive gear on top of the center console on the back deck. The PEACE is not responsible for any lost or stolen item from the boat. All unclaimed dive equipment and/or other miscellaneous items left aboard the PEACE for more than 30 days will be discarded. We do not have enough storage to hold all unclaimed items for more than 30 days. Left aboard items such as clothing will be donated to local charities. Please be sure to check for your personal items and dive equipment before you leave the boat.
Parking: You may park in the loading zones ONLY to load/unload your gear. Once you have loaded/unloaded your gear, park in the spaces closest to the street that you came in on and the parking is free. Please do not park in the red zones to load/unload your gear. We have provided dock carts for your convenience. Please return them to the dock when you are done with them.
New Parking Procedures: You may still park for free, but you must have a parking pass hanging from your rearview mirror to park overnight. The pass is not required for day parking. The parking passes are available on the Peace Dive Boat. Just pick one up and place it on your rearview for overnight parking. You may reuse the same parking pass for future visits or we kindly ask that you bring it back to the boat for the next diver to use. If you do not have the parking pass, you could get a parking ticket.
Camera / Video Equipment: Cameras and video equipment are welcome aboard. There are two fresh water rinse tanks along the Starboard side for your convenience. There is also a charging station located in the Galley. The PEACE also provides a TV and DVD Player for your convenience, with a small selection of DVD's. You are welcome to bring your own videos or watch the video you've just shot underwater!
Left Aboards: Left aboards are only kept for 30 days after each trip. Any unclaimed left aboard items will be donated to a local charity after 30 days.
Schedule Changes due to Weather: All destinations and departure times are subject to change depending decisions made by the Captain on weather and sea conditions . Unfortunately, we are not able to predict what the weather will be like for an upcoming trip. The crossing to the islands may be rough, but there are many places the boat can hide from the weather so that your diving is still enjoyable. The Captain will not place the passengers or the boat in danger. The local marine forecast is checked prior to the departure of all trips, unfortunately, as with any weather forecast, conditions can change in a matter of minutes. The Captain will make the final determination as to the destination and departure times, for the safety of all aboard.
