UCB Diver List

UC Berkeley does not organize or oversee any diving events outside of training dives for students and research divers.

Diving involves risk, and all divers diving with buddies found on this list do so at their own risk. If you have not been diving in our local environment, or if you have been away from diving for more than a year, you are strongly encouraged to seek out an instructor to introduce you to Northern California diving and / or review safe diving practices.
