Most members of the Catalina Conservancy Divers (CCD) are scuba divers, but there are also members who are marine researchers, boat owners, and other persons interested in the near shore waters off Santa Catalina Island. Over the years, CCD members have contributed over 25,000 volunteer hours to research and understand Catalina's marine ecosystems.

To become an active diver with the CCD, the first step is becoming a Catalina Conservancy Member at the Adventurer level ($125). Any Adventurer can join the Diver support group, but to be an active diver, additional consideration must be taken which includes: higher level certifications, water skills proficiency evaluations, current AAUS dive physicals, and proof of regular equipment maintenance.
