 Thanks for visiting our website!  Founded in 1970, the Antelope Valley Desert Divers is one of the oldest dive clubs in Southern California.  Some of our more senior members have been diving together since the 1950's and have great stories and experiences to share.  Members enjoy many benefits, including discounts on dive boat charters, equipment purchases and rentals, just to name a few.  We also participate in annual clean-up dives and campouts.  Why not come out and visit us at our general meeting or  event.
