Proceeds to be donated to St Jude Children's Research Hospital in memory of Bonnie Row.

Twenty five miles off the coast of southern California lies the Santa Cruz Island, the largest of California's eight Channel Islands. Here a unique diving experience awaits the spearfisherman led by Terry Maas on his boat, the Tuna Dreamer.
Lush kelp beds provide a home for a variety of Pacific coastal fish for the experienced diver to hunt. Catalina blues, opaleyes, blacksmiths, sheepshead, perch, calicos and the elusive white sea bass are just a few of the numerous species hiding in this kelp forest. We will be on the hunt for big blue fin tunas as well! Bring your gear!

Join Diving For A Cause for a week of exceptional diving and good friends gathering to Celebrate Bonnie Row

Bonnie Row was a loving mother, dear friend, athlete and spearfisherman, and represented the USA in the Worlds Spearfishing Championships in Chile. It is without a doubt that those who knew her will agree that she could leave a footprint on your heart and soul lasting a lifetime. Our hope through this fundraising effort is to be able to make a difference in the lives of so many children in the loving memory of Bonnie.
