Waterhorse Charters… another SDI, TDI Connection in SOCAL

There’s a brand-new charter boat working out of  San Diego, making trips to the Coronados, local kelp beds and Wreck Alley! And it is an SDI, TDI Charter Facility.


We are happy to welcome Waterhorse Charters to the growing team of facilities and instructors supporting SDI and TDI divers in Southern California.

The Humboldt is a new custom dive boat. It has tons of space because it’s a 46 foot Newton especially fitted to carry up to 22 divers. The reports from visiting divers for this new operation have been very positive with comments like "cool crew, good food, and all the stuff that makes diving in San Diego fun."

The section of the coast served by Waterhorse inlcudes Wreck Alley — perfect training ground for experienced SDI divers and TDI divers. Local wrecks include the Ruby E, El Rey, Ingraham St. Bridge, a Weather Tower, and most recently and probably best known, The Yukon. The Yukon is a 366 ft. Canadian destroyer sunk in July of 2000 especially for divers. All of these wrecks are in sand and open ocean.

The “Nods” (Coronados) are about an hour’s cruise away but offer terrific sport-level diving on a par with Caribbean destination. The Nods are actually in Mexican waters but no passport is necessary for US and Canadian divers. Most of the diving at the Nods is done on the lee side of the island so the water is protected from the oncoming swells. This makes for calmer and clearer waters. one of the huge attractions of this area are the Sea Lions and Harbor Seals so pack a camera!

If you are a TDI or SDI Facility putting together a group dive, contact Waterhorse and ask about their "No Risk" charter package. This is a unique program where stores can charter either half or the full boat, but only pay for whom they bring, as long as final numbers are confirmed more than 14 days out.
