The NAUI-certified instructors at Ye Ol’ Dive Shop of Simi Valley impart all the skills and training necessary to safely tread below the surface of the sea. Discovery lessons lend an introductory exploration into scuba equipment and diving techniques before students embark on a supervised session within the unexplored depths of a swimming pool. For a more complete discovery of their inner fishes, initiates wade into the Complete Diver Workshop; in this course, extensive review of equipment and safe practices precedes five sessions of open-water training, wherein acquired techniques are pitted against the rigors of currents and high-tech fishing lures. Course fulfillment results in the procurement of a NAUI Scuba Diver certification card as well as CPR and first-aid certification.

Custom Scuba’s two boats aren’t typical leisure vessels—they’re inflatable boats, originally designed for Navy SEALS. And like Navy SEALS, the company’s captains use the boats to reach hidden channels and hard-to-access waterways. However, unlike Navy SEALS, their top priority is fun. With more than 10 years of experience each, the two captains helm snorkeling adventures, fishing trips, and sunset cruises that showcase the area’s natural beauty at sites often not visited by other companies. True to its company name, the team also offers scuba classes, teaching basic underwater skills and doling out dive certifications with a teaching motto of never rushing a student and always putting safety first and cannonball competitions last.

Trail And Mountain's owner inherited a love for the outdoors from his father, an avid hunter. Though the son never cared for hunting, he has followed that passion for nature for the rest of his life, honing wilderness navigation skills by hiking landscapes from the Catskill Mountains to the hills of North Carolina. Today, he marries this experience with certifications in first aid in a quest to introduce others to California's wilderness. During single- or multiple-day excursions in Santa Barbara County and beyond, he helms tours and helps coordinate activities for tourists ranging from day hikes to whale watching to paragliding.
