Out to Sea is a NAUI Dream Destination providing diving programs, tours and charters led by Taylor, who comes to us from the rugged northern California coast. Taylor brings to us experience diving from Trinidad, CA to Santa Catalina Island with a multitude of diverse diving experiences and skill sets ranging from instruction in professional development to underwater ecology to small group instruction for youth divers. Taylor learned to dive at a young age, and that early experience inspired her to learn about all facets of the underwater world. She is thrilled to share this passion with anyone from beginner level to highly experienced divers in a small group or one on one course, whether it be at San Carlos Beach to Jade Cove or to the reaches of the ErinAnne.

Our dive program follows the vision of Out to Sea in that everyone’s experience should be safe, informative, enjoyable and life changing…we’ll get you squared away! Fundamental, core diving skills are taught and reinforced according to individual needs determined upon your custom consultation, along with supplemental, enriching techniques that will ensure your competency and confidence as a diver.

With a broad experience base and a passion for the endless adventures to be had both above and below the water, Taylor shares each instructional opportunity as a life-long learning experience with you, the client.

As each diver is different, so is each course, to be determined after your primary consultation with Taylor. The courses offered below are customizable to each diver’s needs and expectations. No matter your diving goals, we are confident that Taylor and Out to Sea can customize a course to meet them.
