Double Yukon June 20th 2020

2 tank dive to the Yukon aboard The Humboldt. Unlike most ships with large open holds for cargo, the Yukon was designed to carry a crew—its bulkheads and low decks form a maze of narrow passages and small compartments, some of which are over 50’ from the nearest exit.

HMCS Yukon

On a quiet summer night in 2000, the HMCS Yukon prematurely sunk off San Diego’s coast to later become a major attraction of the famous “Wreck Alley”.

The 366 ft Canadian destroyer now sits hard on its port side, between 65 ft and 105 ft underwater. The massive wreck is blanketed in multi-colored strawberry anemones, schooling reef fish, and surging kelp.

The Yukon is a popular wreck training site with a variety of swim-throughs and wreck penetration opportunities. It’s the most accessible and intact wreck found on the California coast.



  • One FULL air tank. Ask to have it checked before you leave the store. Trust no one. Tanks are refilled on boat.
  • All your regular SCUBA gear including weights. Lay everything out and use a checklist. Pack (in a dive roller bag works best) in reverse order so the items you will need first are on top.
  • Gear: regulator, BCD, mask, fins, snorkel, boots, gloves, hood, exposure suit, surface marker buoy (SMB), anti-fog, cylinder, weights, dive lights, camera, extra batteries and anything else you normally dive with.
  • C-Card
  • Log Book
  • First Aid kit
  • Save-A-Dive kit (O-rings, mask and fin strap, computer battery, etc)
  • Extra towel
  • Sunscreen
  • Hat
  • Dive Parka, windbreaker or sweatshirt in case it gets cold.
  • A change of clothes. Example: If I'm going to wear shorts and sandals, I will usually pack a pair of jeans, socks and tennis shoes. It's better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.
  • Cash for gratuity. Most of the boat crews out here work for tips only and they split the tip jar at the end of the trip. Standard dining gratuity protocol is customary. $15.00-$20.00 for a 3 tank trip per person.
  • It is recommended you tell someone you are going diving, the name of the boat you will be on, its scheduled destination (Catalina, San Clemente, etc.) and your scheduled return-to-dock time.
  • Take motion sickness medication as directed if needed.
