Dive boat operator Truth Aquatics suspends all operations


The Conception, a dive boat based out of Santa Barbara, caught fire in the early morning of Sept. 2, killing 34 people.

Santa Barbara-based Truth Aquatics, which operated the dive boat Conception that burned on Labor Day and killed 34 people, said it is suspending all operations while an investigation continues.

“With the continued calls and request for tours, we want to announce that we are officially suspending all operations of our Truth Aquatic fleet for a to-be-determined amount of time,” Truth Aquatics said in an Instagram post. “Right now we feel it’s important [to] dedicate our entire efforts to make our boats models of new regulations that we will continue to work on with the NTSB and Coast Guard.”
