Getaway Charters and Adventures
Captain Gary Jackson originally cut his aquatic teeth as a PADI scuba-diving training coordinator and instructor. From there, it didn't take him long to found a charter company around his dive boat, the Psalty V, and today he leads harbor tours and dive trips from its deck. His vessel and crew also takes visitors on whale-watching trips as well as harbor cruises, where guests pass by one of the world's busiest harbors, where super-cargo ships, private yachts, and sea lions abound. His dive instruction teaches the basics of deep, nitrox, and wreck diving to ensure that his clients feel comfortable graduating from diving in the bathtub to the outdoor kiddie pool and beyond.
