All Things Malibu
Few people know that recreational scuba diving began in the United States of America with a dive conducted among friends off the Los Angeles / Malibu coast of Little Dume, Point Dume in Malibu. One of those friends was the pioneer of diving, Jacques Cousteau. That's right, Cousteau dived off Malibu in 1948. From those humble beginnings, diving has blossomed into a worldwide activity that more than one million people learn how to do every year.
Malibu Divers has been training and supporting divers in Malibu and the surrounding Los Angeles community for over forty years. Founded by legendary waterman and Olympic volleyball player Mike Bright, Malibu Divers has been in its current location ever since. Founded in the late sixties, the shop supported the mainly hunting oriented devotees. The gear was difficult to use and the physical requirements to dive were high. Modern gear innovations and advances in training have made learning to dive a simple and easy process.
