Paradise Dive Club, founded in 1989, is a diving and social club. The Club provides a setting that allows continued growth in our sport and one where friendships can develop and flourish. Paradise Dive Club promotes fun, safe diving related activities and environmental awareness. The Club was founded to provide social and recreational opportunities to people with mutual interests in snorkeling, scuba and free diving, and to educate and inform its members and the general public in matters related to diving and the ocean, particularly in regard to issues involving coastal Santa Barbara County.

Paradise Dive Club conducts monthly meetings where members have the opportunity to share their dive stories and adventures, enjoy live entertainment and education, and participate in a gear raffle! Members, visitors, and guests are all welcome at the meetings. In addition, Paradise Dive Club organizes beach dives and other diving related events throughout the year.
