The daytime event is known as “Chamber Day” and runs as it has in the past. (And don’t forget the date - Wednesday, May 2.)

Ten of the SoCal dive boats donate their services for the day. They are (in alphabetical order): Aquatica, Bottom Scratcher, Cee Ray, Encore, Golden Doubloon, Horizon, Magician, Mr. C, Sundiver, and Westerly. Here’s the way it works.

You pay $75 for the day (all the proceeds go to the Chamber) and choose the boat you want to go on. (Book early because once a boat fills, it’s unavailable. Although we’ll hold a reservation for you for 72 hours, after that time, spots are only guaranteed when they are paid in full.) In general, the boats will leave the dock at 7AM and head for Catalina. (Some boats may allow you to board the night before and sleep on board. The Horizon will depart the evening before from San Diego.) You’ll get a commemorative Chamber Day 2001 t-shirt, five raffle tickets (you can buy more on your boat or at the Chamber), and make two dives at Catalina.

Sometime during the day, your boat will stop at our Catalina Chamber in Big Fisherman’s Cove. You’ll all disembark for a 75-minute overview of Chamber operations. L.A. County Lifeguards will explain their job, rescue helicopters and crews from the Coast Guard and Sheriffs will be on hand, and the Chamber crew will show you the Chamber itself, including taking you inside and pressurizing the Chamber to a depth of 1-foot. (Yes, you’ll have to clear your ears. It’s really weird and we can’t explain it logically. However, if you think you’re getting narked, then we’ve got to talk.)

Except for the Horizon, boats will arrive back at their docks between 5 and 5:30PM. Raffle winners will be posted and prizes will be handed out. And everyone will have a good time. But we can’t do it unless you sign up for the event and you do that by calling Reef Seekers Dive Co. (the co-ordinating store for the event) at 310/652-4990. Come alone, or come with a friend, but just come.

But if you can’t do the daytime event (or if you do the daytime and want to cap it off with a fabulous evening) . . .
