So, it wasn’t completely unexpected considering that the whales have started their migrations from Baja Mexico all the way to the Alaskan coast; but, when you are on your Open Water Dives and haven’t really even experienced all that Southern California has to offer…

On the Riviera Yacht Charters today, our divers got  an up close and personal experience with some whales cruising nice and close to our favorite dive sites. Now that is something to report! I bet many of you are throwing out the “Aw, Schucks!” and “No Way!” right now as you read this. It is definitely a true treat to get the opportunity to encounter these majestic mammals.

Join Us for Chamber Day 2015 – Wednesday, May 6th, 2015

If you have already signed up for Chamber Day 2015, thank you very much for your support.

For those of you who have not signed up, there is still plenty of opportunities to help support the USC Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber which is celebrating its 41st year of service to the Southern California Diving Communities.

Chamber Day 2015 (www.ChamberDay.org ) is a month away. The 27th annual Chamber Day and 17th annual Chamber Evening Fund Raiser for the USC Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber will be held on Wednesday May 6th.

For the past 41 years the USC Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber has been dedicated to the treatment of diving accidents on a 24/7/365 basis. Having the Chamber available gives divers in Southern California waters a vital safety net in the event of a diving accident.

The Chamber’s contract from LA County provides a little over 50% of the Chamber’s annual budget needs. The annual Chamber Day contributions from divers, clubs, shops, manufacturers, organizations, publications and dive boat operators provide a significant portion of the remaining budget.

These funds go to covering transportation of Chamber Volunteers to and from the mainland, treatment gas, equipment purchases, maintenance, and repairs.

If you haven’t already signed up for Chamber Day 2015 there are many ways you can participate:

* Go diving and get a tour the Chamber with the Chamber Day 2015 Dive
* Attend the 17th Annual Chamber Evening Dinner at the Aquarium of the Pacific
* Enter the Chamber Day Raffle and have a chance to win valuable prizes
* Donate to the 2015 Catalina Chamber Challenge
* Join the Ghostly Crew and “dive” The Flying Dutchman
* Order Chamber Day & Chamber Evening Shirts and Posters On-Line

For more information on how you can be involved in Chamber Day and Chamber Evening 2015, visit the Chamber Day web site at www.ChamberDay.org or call 310-652-4990. You can also get updates on Chamber Day and other Chamber Events by becoming a Facebook Fan of the Chamber . Please forward this message to anyone you think might be interested in supporting the Chamber and participating in Chamber Day.

Thank you for your support.
