Discover southern California SCUBA diving
An ocean of fun for you and your family or your special group
Captain Ray Arntz
One of the most experienced and dynamic commercial dive boat captains in southern California, Captain Ray is also an avid freediver, blue water hunter, and wreck diver with over 5,000 dives. He also holds a 100 ton master license.
20 years of experience in southern California have helped Ray find interesting dive sites with the best possible conditions. He is passionate for diving and enjoys working on shipwreck location and exploration when he’s not running charters. This has helped him create a database of over 7,000 dive sites.
Co-founder of California’s only U-boat wreck, the World War I German UB 88, Ray was able to supervise all diving operations surrounding the documentation of this wreck. Also, he coordinated search and dive operations for San Diego’s lost B-36 Peacemaker.
Additionally, Ray has worked on a variety of entertainment projects, including deploying special effect props aboard the SUNDIVER for an on-location film shoot of CSI: Miami and also supporting the development of training materials for PADI, a national scuba training agency.
