If you aren't meeting us at LAX Thursday Oct 15, you've missed this, our last trip of 2009. But do not fret. SWS has a 2010 trip list that includes at least one trip that offers just what you can afford to spend in money and time and meets your expectation of a wow of a dive trip. From our own California coast to far flung dive destinations, SWS gives you the opportunity to dive with a great bunch of dive buddies who make up the ever changing, ever expanding group known as "Andy's Traveling Dive Team". You never dive alone when you join us on one of our organized group dive trips. Check out the other trips listed on this website. You'll find something wonderful to do with us next year.
If you really want to dive Fiji but just missed this trip for one reason or another, the SWS Dive Travel Goddess has been organizing our dive trips to Fiji over the past 14 years and would be happy to book you into her favorite dive resorts/live-aboards in Fiji. Who better to set up your individual of family dive trip to Fiji? Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the store at 916-332-8294.
