2 Day Spear Trip to SCI on Westerly(Long Beach)

On a bit of a tear right now scheduling charters and decided to scratch the SCI itch once again now that the Sand Dollar is no longer running trips. (only got to do one with them, but it was un-real).

I have been in frequent communication with Cpt. Joe of the Westerly Dive boat out of Long Beach about scheduling a multi-day Freedive Spearfishing trip out to San Clemente Island. This would be a 2 day trip that left the dock around 10pm or midnight, headed to the island for a full day of spearfishing, sleep on boat again and dive half day before returning to Long Beach docks.

Floating out a potential date to gauge interest, but future dates are very possible as well.

Depart January 26 midnight (Friday)
Return Sunday 28th (Sunday)

Cost: $250-$280 depending on numbers including all food, drinks, snacks and crew. Not bad at all!

PM, text or comment below so I can get some numbers.
(781)-898-four280

Hey Lompoc. I hear your point, it's off season and maybe not ideal time for a trip to SCI. What I want to accomplish is help Joe from the Westerly break into the multi day fishing trips around the long beach area for selfish reasons: the Sand Dollar is not running trips and neither is anyone else for that matter. Not day trips on small boats, a big, fun livaboard, giving Spearos a chance to meet, make friends and hunt some of the best cold water diving I've ever seen in a relaxed and affordable environment.

What I hope to accomplish is a limit of sheep's, calicos, maybe a lobster or two and potentially an early WSB. Even more than that, I just wanna be there

I've talked to Spearos in OC and have 10 people wanting to go, and recently started talking to those up north. A few people seem to be in agreement that there was a void left by the Sand Dollar and I am hoping it gets filled fast by anyone. I am doing my part to get her done lol.

Come support!

Thanks

Hey Mike,

Yes it is. I'm thinking of making the Westerly's maiden hunting voyage into a competition called SCI Calico Shoot Out.

Interested?

Count me out for this one, but I would definitely love to do a Spring or Summer trip. Definitely had some good times on the SD...

Re: 2 Day Spear Trip to SCI on Westerly(Long Beach)

Perhaps. I really, really miss The Sand Dollar. George was just the best! I need a break........I can get fish here and there, and I can get 21 lobster in one local spot but you just can't match the type of fun and experience you have on a multi-day trip.
