Well, finally took the plunge and started my own site. Mostly California based, but some international as well.

Some content to be added, and broken links to fix, but feel free to dive in!

Were closed by Shell shortly after 9/11. Local shop owner negotiated with them to get access, but they have strict rules - no touching the rigs, no taking of game, boats can only come within 100 yards, while divers have to surface within 30 feet of the rig, can only apporach from certain directions....

those last two restrictions make for fun surface swims to and from the rigs when the current isn't cooperating!

reefseekers.com is the shop with access to the southern rigs.
