USC Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber Day

May 1

During the past 50 years the USC Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber has been dedicated to the treatment of diving accidents on a 24/7/365 basis. The annual Chamber Day contributions from divers, clubs, shops, manufacturers, organizations, publications and dive boat operators are essential, supporting transportation of Chamber Volunteers to and from the mainland, treatment gases, equipment purchases, maintenance, and repairs.

Here’s how you get involved (there’s more detailed info on the pages for each specific aspect of the event):

CHAMBER DAY – Seven boats will be ready to show you underwater SoCal on May 1. In alphabetical order they are: Giant Stride, Liberty (free diving only), Pacific Moon, Pacific Star, SoCal Diver, Sundiver, and Sundiver Express. Collectively those boats will have 119 spots available this year.

THE FLYING DUTCHMAN – The original virtual (fake) dive boat, a perennial favorite of many.

THE CHAMBER CHALLENGE – Direct donations which can also be in someone’s honor/memory. Special recognition for those contributing $1,000, $5,000, $10,000, or $15,000.

CHAMBER EVENING (IN-PERSON PLUS A VIRTUAL OPTION) – Held in the Great Hall at Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, this evening event is limited to 350 attendees (35 tables of 10). All of the tables are sponsored/hosted by various shops, clubs, or boats.
