Catalina Chamber Day

Join Us for Chamber Day 2019 - May 1, 2019 - CHECK BACK for More UPDATES!

Help support the USC Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber and celebrate its years of service to the Southern California Diving Communities since 1974.

Chamber Day 2019 (, Wednesday May 1st is the date for the 31th annual Chamber Day and 19th Annual Chamber Evening Fund Raiser for the USC Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber. 
For over 40 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 something should go wrong.

The Chamber's contract from LA County provides only about 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 50% of the budget.

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