"Freediving is not only a sport, it's a way to understand who we are."
-- Natalia Molchanova
We are southern California’s first collective of female Freedivers and Spearfishers dedicated to educating and celebrating women in these sports. The collective focuses on mentoring new female Freedivers and Spearas to grow their skills safely and successfully, while providing experienced members a rich network of female dive buddies and dive related opportunities.
SoCal Dive Babes encourages spearfishing as a lifestyle, shifting the cultural conversation away from trophy hunting and elitist attitudes, towards one of sustainability, accessibility, and community. We use the sport of Freediving to dive deeper into ourselves, explore the underwater world, and improve our hunting skills.
Through our regularly scheduled shore dives, island boat dives, international dive trips, trainings, community collaborations, and our daily WhatsApp group dialogue, we’ve built a tight-knit group of adventurous women who are learning, laughing, and honing their craft together.
