The Reef Check Foundation invites experienced scuba divers to become trained in our California rocky reef monitoring program. Since 2006, Reef Check’s California (RCCA) Program has trained over 1000 experienced recreational SCUBA divers to scientifically monitor California’s rocky reef ecosystem at over 80 sites from Humboldt to San Diego counties.
Community members play a significant role in collecting key information on the health of rocky reefs and aid in the baseline and long-term monitoring of California’s Marine Protected Areas (MPAs).
There is a Reef Check California training coming up in a location near you. Each training will be held over two weekends, with classroom and pool training the first weekend followed by training and testing dives in the ocean the second weekend. The cost of the course is $250, which covers all dive boat fees, your own underwater survey slate and transect tape, the RCCA Training Manual, and species identification flash cards!
This is a wonderful way to learn more about our rocky reefs and their inhabitants and play an important role in sustainable marine management in California. Taking action and becoming a trained Reef Check Diver allows you join a group of dedicated divers from all walks of life who want healthy coastal ecosystems and support science-based decision making.

Whether you already enjoy underwater photography while scuba diving, or are just beginning, this seminar offers information to create successful images.
The class is designed for the compact camera user (point-and-shoot) who wants to learn equipment basics, strobe lighting, natural (available) light as well and post production workflow including basic editing.
The seminar will focus on the Sea-Life camera system, but will also include basic underwater photography principles and techniques. While the class will feature the Sea-Life brand,there will also be general information about other compact camera brands, strobe and housings.
There will be a Sea-Life camera availble to work with during the seminar, and, to explore different camera settings available on most point-and-shoot cameras.
Prior to class, we will have an evaluation question and answer for those already taking underwater photos. Come early and bring your computer or tablet with sample photos and we will discuss how to improve the images and what segments of the seminar will benefit your images best.
