We all know California offers a lot topside: It’s a state full of sunny weather, beaches, culinary delights, attractions for any interest and natural beauty galore. But if you’ve never experienced this state from below the surface, you’re missing out on one of the best parts.

California is an underwater treasure, unique in the diving world for it’s marine life, the number and sheer diversity of its diving locations, and its underwater beauty. California is known for its ethereal kelp forests, sassy garibaldis, playful sea lions and giant black sea bass, just to name a few.

There’s plenty of beach diving in and around the Long Beach area. And just a quick hop from Long Beach on a ferry or dive boat, the Channel Islands offer spectacular dive sites.

Whether you’re staying for a week or just making a quick day trip, the city of Long Beach offers a myriad of dining options, entertainment and of course, the beach. And if you’re looking to explore beyond the city limits, it’s conveniently located near Los Angeles and under three hours south San Diego or north to Santa Barbara, with plenty of beach towns worth stopping for in between.


For many, becoming a scuba diver is a life changing experience. The feeling you get underwater is comparable to weightlessness in outer space. In fact, it’s how astronauts train for their missions! Diving can take you to destinations near and far you’ve never dreamed of visiting, or add a new element of fun to places you already know well. And since 71% of our Earth is covered by water, the possibilities are virtually endless.

We’re bringing an 15,000-gallon heated pool into the exhibit hall. Bring a friend or two that have never been diving, or jump in yourself! Kids 10+ welcome. We provide the gear and professionals – just bring your suit and towel. It’s free!
