The Whalers is one of the oldest independant dive clubs in Southern California.

Founded in 1963, we're proud to be celebrating over 50 years continuous operation.

We meet on the first Wednesday of the month at 6PM at BJ's Restaurant in Woodland Hills

The Channel Islands



We dive locally

Whalers are on a local boat every month to the northern and southern Channel Islands as well as coastal trips from Palos Verdes to Santa Barbara.

You'll find us often on The Peace and Spectre in Ventura, as well as the Truth boats in Santa Barbara and occaisonally a few of the smaller 6-12 packs out of San Pedro.

We're world travelers

Whalers go to foreign lands and warm water at least once a year. Recent years have found us in Roatan, Cayman Islands, Bonaire and Turks & Caicos. 

As a Whaler, all multi-person savings and discounts are returned to our travelers, lowering costs for everyone.

We're trainers, educators and environmentalists

The Whalers provides highly discounted advanced training classes to our members. Since 2011 we have issued over 100 certifications from AOW to Divemaster to Whalers. Click here to see the details. 

At our monthly meetings we bring in speakers on a wide variety of topics including dive safety, equipment, ocean environment, marine biology and travel.

The Whalers have adopted Deer Creek State Beach our our own in 1989. We support three annual beach clean-ups.
