We’re at 81% capacity with less than two weeks to go, having sold 245 spots out of 302 available, plus another 22 on the Flying Dutchman, our mythical (and fake - just to be clear) Chamber Day boat.

You pay $85 for the day (all the proceeds go to the Chamber) and choose from the available boats. This year, all the boats are doing food-and-air-included so we’ll also collect $20 from you for that (making the total tab $105). There will be an free on-board raffle on the way over to Catalina. You’ll also get a commemorative Chamber Day 2005 t-shirt, five raffle tickets (you’re encouraged to buy more on your boat or at the Chamber), you’ll make two dives at Catalina, plus get a 75-minute walking tour of the Chamber and facilities.

Here’s where we are as of 4-21 on the boats (along with whether they’re sponsored or open):

Aquatica (Douglas Dive Club, Dive N Surf, Sea Sabres) - Still have 19 spots, perfect for a club or group
Bottom Scratcher (Open) - About 13 spots available
Cee Ray (Reef Seekers) - 7spots left
Encore (Open) - FULL
Flying Dutchman (Open) - 22 sold and plenty more where they came from
Great Escape (Open) - FULL
Island Time (Sport Chalet) - FULL
Magician (Sport Chalet) - FULL
Mr. C (CA Wreck Divers, Rod Francis) - 5 spots left
Pacific Star (Scuba Schools of America) - FULL
Psalty V (Scuba Schools of America) - FULL
Sea Bass (Aqua Adventures Dive Club) - 10 spots available on this fast boat
Second Stage (Pacific Wilderness Dive Club) - FULL
Sundiver (Ocean Adventures) - Only 2 spots left

Right now, we’re right at 61% for Chamber Evening, with 244 out of 400 spots accounted for. We’ve got room at the table(s) for you . . .

Cost of the evening is $85 and for that you’ll receive tickets good for two (non-alcoholic) drinks (coffee, tea, and water available with your meal as well). You’ll also receive 5 raffle tickets, good for some special prizes we’ll have on hand for the evening. Plus, there will be opportunity (and encouragement and arm-twisting) to buy more raffle tickets while you’re there. Total value of the evening raffle prizes will approach $10,000 and includes regulators, BCs, computers, and even a complete gear set. (See the website - - for a complete listing of all prizes and donors.)

As with Chamber Day, Chamber Evening tickets can be purchased by calling our co-ordinating store at (310)652-4990 or by going to our secure server at Just indicate how many tickets you want and how you want to pay. It’s as simple as that.

Here’s the tile count so far:

Full murals (see above - $500 each) - 13 sold
Boat tiles ($25 each) - 7 sold
Chamber tiles ($15 each) - 3 sold

Come on and buy some tiles. Not only will you be supporting our Chamber, but these are great collectors items as well as will make great gifts.
