This trip is for everyone who wants to do some bug catching especially for those that want to learn. Everyone on these trips is happy to share the knowledge they have and the experiences and stories that goes with it as well. It will be very early in the season and going home with some lobsters should be something to plan on. Just remember the more you put into it the more you will be rewarded with!

Santa Cruz & Santa Rosa Island are both excellent places for some bug catching especially if the weather is on our side. If it is we can get to some even better places to tip it in our favor. Both islands are big and have plenty of great dive sites to keep us busy all weekend.
