Why Eco Dive Center Celebrates women in Diving:

Women are integral to the world of scuba diving, contributing significantly to adventure, conservation efforts, diver training, and safety in our oceans. Historically, women have shouldered immense responsibilities in marine conservation, making their presence in the diving community indispensable.

The fusion of scuba diving and conservation is intrinsic to women in the sport. Sylvia Earle, a prominent figure in this realm, exemplifies this harmony, setting a precedent for integrating exploration and conservation. Her poignant quote, "We must explore the depths of the ocean to truly understand our place in the universe," encapsulates the ethos embraced by women divers worldwide.

As a woman dive instructor myself, I draw inspiration from trailblazers like Sylvia Earle and Dottie Frazier, the first female scuba instructor and a pioneer in dive training. Their influence resonates deeply within the diving community, motivating us to push boundaries and advocate for the preservation of our marine ecosystems, as well as striving to make scuba diving a welcoming place for female participants.

Eco Dive Center remains steadfast in championing both women and conservation in diving. Over the years, we've cultivated and sustained relationships within our community, forging alliances with key organizations such as Heal the Bay and Shark Allies, both founded by influential women in Southern California's environmental sphere. We also take great pride in our commitment to hold regular events for the Southern California diving community, highlighting the opportunities and accomplishments of these local female-run organizations.

Through these partnerships, we aim to amplify our impact, advocating for the protection and preservation of our oceans while fostering a supportive environment for women in diving. Together with our allies, we are committed to driving positive change and creating a sustainable future for our marine ecosystems.

Join us in our mission to continue carrying the torch for women and conservation in diving. Together, we can make a difference, one dive at a time.

Why Eco Dive Center Collaborates with Hotel Figueroa DTLA:

Eco Dive Center is thrilled to announce its collaboration with Hotel Figueroa to celebrate Women's Dive Day. This partnership brings together two passionate advocates for marine conservation and female empowerment, creating a unique event that honors the contributions of women in diving.

Eco Dive Center's Mission Aligns with Hotel Figueroa's Legacy

Eco Dive Center is proud to partner with Hotel Figueroa, an institution with a profound commitment to championing women's causes. This partnership is a natural fit, given our shared dedication to empowering women and fostering a supportive community.

Hotel Figueroa: A Legacy of Empowerment

Hotel Figueroa's story began in 1925, when women from the local YWCA secured a loan for what the Los Angeles Times described as “the largest individual financial transaction ever undertaken by a body of women in the United States.” Founded, financed, and operated entirely by women for women, the hotel opened on August 14, 1926. At a time when single women traveling alone faced physical danger, social ridicule, and could be denied lodging without a male chaperone, Hotel Figueroa provided a safe haven, dedicating nine of its fourteen floors entirely to female guests.

Both Eco Dive Center and Hotel Figueroa are deeply rooted in the belief that empowering women leads to broader social benefits. Hotel Figueroa's historic role in providing a safe and empowering environment for women mirrors Eco Dive Center's efforts to support and highlight women's contributions in diving and marine conservation.
