What we’re about

The Los Angeles Black Underwater Explorers (LABUE) is a SCUBA diving club that has been dedicated to expanding the knowledge and enjoyment of SCUBA diving among African-Americans since 1992. Despite our name we welcome those of all races.

LABUE strives to provide "something for everyone" in the exciting world of SCUBA diving. Supported by more than 100 members, LABUE has found success by offering a wide variety dive opportunities including beach dives, boat dives, tropical dive vacation trips to some of the most popular dive destinations on earth, and an array of enjoyable social and networking activities.

LABUE has something to satisfy a wide range of SCUBA diving skill levels; and dive interests from technical diving, to UW photography, hunting, UW archeology, and more. We also regularly introduces non-divers to the sport through our Discover Scuba Program. LABUE general membership, committee members, and the board of directors are are volunteers who have worked together to take LABUE to new heights throughout the years. 

We have some wonderfully talented divers who dedicated themselves to scuba dive with the latest and at the most forefront guidelines and practices of the sport's standards. If LABUE sounds like something you would like to hear more about, please contact us by email or by telephone at 323-299-3798, or meet us at our general membership meeting which occurs every second Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. at the National History Museum in Exposition Park.
