Painted Cave is the largest sea cave in the world and is large enough to pilot the most any dive boat into it. It is located at the northwest side of Santa Cruz Island. There is no diving inside of Painted Cave as the walls are barren, but there is some good diving on the steep slopes along the side of the island and some good pinnacles and sea mounds on the way back. Depths can vary from 30'-80' and visibility can be 20'-50'. This trip is good for intermediate divers and above. Possible currents and surface signal device recommended.
