It’s been a lethal year so far. There have been numerous deaths, amongst both freedivers and SCUBA divers in Northern California. Many of these deaths have been solo divers. It should be needless to say this, but please be safe and dive with a buddy. It’s only “common sense”.

California Diving News
After being a staple magazine in California dive stores for 25 years, CDN creates a strong online presence with its website.
California Diving News is proud of its redesigned CADivingNews.com. The newest version includes a searchable database featuring articles dating back to the inception of the magazine 25 years ago. The site also includes a searchable database of stores and boats throughout California and surrounding states. The dive boat trip calendar, an immensely popular feature on its previous sites and in the magazine itself, has also become much more user friendly. The site was designed to let any diver, California native or potential California visitor, research dive sites, locate a store or look up a boat trip, all in one place.
When designing the site, CDN wanted to put the most amount of information possible at the diver’s fingertips. “There have been so many good articles published in CDN over the years, we wanted a way to let everybody out there access it,” said marketing director Christopher D. Sheckler. “We want everyone to have the opportunity to learn about the hundreds of dive sites that are along the shores of California. We really believe this is the premier website for California divers. Finally, one website has just about anything you wanted to know about California scuba diving.”
The site also includes past articles about diving techniques, photography, marine life and gear reviews, written by regular contributors such as Bruce Watkins, Nancy Vander Velde, Bonnie Cardone, Ken Kurtis and Dale and Kim Sheckler. Recently Dale Scheckler turned over the reins as Senior Editor to noted marine photographer/author/magazine editor, et al, Marty Snyderman.
