Make any excuse to go diving in July to win prizes worth thousands of dollars and raise funds to support the San Diego Oceans Foundation, a non-profit organization that has been promoting ocean stewardship for 25 years.

The tax-deductible registration fee is $25 and includes a FREE event T-shirt. Online registration is simple and takes only ten minutes.

Similar to a walk-a-thon, Dive-a-Thon participants set a personal diving goal for the month of July and seek financial pledges from friends and family. But instead of treading along a dry, hot road to raise money for a cause, divers get to explore the magical world of our oceans to support marine-based programs.

Prizes are awarded based on points: $1 raised earns you 2 points; 1 minute logged earns you 1 point.
