San Gabriel Valley Scuba Club


San Gabriel Valley SCUBA Club

The San Gabriel Valley Scuba  Club is a group of people with all different types of underwater talents. Our members range from Instructors, Dive Masters, Master SCUBA Divers, Rescue Divers, Advanced Open Water divers to newly certified Open Water Divers! As well as a few PADI Seals! We promote a fun, family atmosphere with a constant awareness of our ocean environment.

If you are looking for just a dive buddy we are your club! If you want to meet people and go on organized chartered Scuba Trips we are your club! Whether you just want to snorkel, scuba dive, or be safety observers on the beach or boat we have something for everyone in this group!

We meet every 2nd Thursday of the Month at IHOP San Dimas. Social hour starts at 6.00pm, with the general meeting starting at 7. You do not have to be a member to attend. We try to have a guest speaker every month on topics from Dive Safety and technique, to travel locations, member trip reports, underwater photography, and dive history.

Sharky's Scuba & Swim in San Dimas is our shop sponsor and they generously give us a $50 gift card as a door prize which one lucky member will win each month, along with 12 free tank fills a year (Nitrox excluded) to all members, as well as a discount on dive related merchandise.
