Riviera Yacht Charters is located in the convenient Dana Point Harbor in South Orange County and is an exceptional way to experience scuba diving in Orange County without the hassle of beach diving. The Riviera is focused on serving divers, snorkelers, underwater hunters, photographers and private charters. On the Riviera you will enjoy a 2-tank local dive trip exploring the reefs and kelp forests of San Clemente, Laguna Beach, and Newport Beach. The Riviera is a 40ft, Coast Guard certified vessel capable of carrying 30 passengers but we only book 20 divers to maximize your comfort! The Riviera provides tanks, weights, food and drinks. Nitrox is available upon request. For those that scuba dive in Huntington Beach, Cypress and the outlying areas, this is a great opportunity for Orange County diving at its best!

Where do we go? We love Laguna Beach and what it has to offer. Check out this link to see the dive sites we love the most!
