YELLOW NIMR DIVE BELL
The landmark yellow dive bell on top of the CDI Campus building is not a piece of functioning dive equipment, but is actually a prop from the 1960s Irwin Allen movie/TV series "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea". Before being acquired and partially restored by CDI's founders in 2009, the bell had set atop a now closed Dive Shop in San Diego, CA since 1992. The interior and exterior were featured in the sci-fi series, and the original prop communication and control boards seen in the show remain in the bell to this day.
