The coast of California is home to one of the most magnificent of all marine habitats, the kelp forests. Like the rain forests on land, the kelp forests provide a large diversity of species.

Doing our part:

Westbound is a “Green” boat in that we only use recycled and sustainable products such as, plates, cups, napkins and paper towels. We provide filtered water, every one is given a cup to put their name on and to use for the day.
Westbound only uses biodegradable and non toxic cleaners that do not harm the marine environment.

You will find that our prices are very, very competitive with even the larger boats that are quite a drive away from MDR and we offer more. Besides our prime location, we are fast (15kt. cruise), we have: great food, shade for you and your gear, state of the art electronics, lots of room (on deck and inside) and lots of local wrecks and reefs right in our back yard.

Being a "six pack" (No more than six passengers) Westbound is perfect for SCUBA classes, diving with a few friends on your own boat, Whale watching, Catalina trips and coastal cruses.

Trips we do are:

Recreational, technical, oil rigs, wrecks, kelp forests, classes and channel Islands.

We also offer guided wreck trips.

Make your own charter or check our Calendar Page for a few trips that we are offering this month. Be sure and check back, each month we offer different trips.

Westbound is designed and modified specifically for SCUBA divers, both recreational and technical.

There is seating for twelve and with a six passenger limit there is plenty of room.
