Join us for a weekly Date @ 8 shore dive. We meet at the Burger King on Rt.128 in Beverly every Saturday morning and head to one of Cape Ann's numerous dive sites for a dive or two. Dive sites are decided on the spot to accomodate the experience and skill levels of those who show up, and everyone is welcome - members and non-members alike. Click for photos of past shore dives
Please contact the coordinator (listed on the Date @ 8 page linked
above) a day or two before Saturday if you'd like to join us, to make
sure the group doesn't leave without you if you're running a little late.
Also, please note that during winter months we meet at 10am! See you there!

Many divers enjoy documenting their underwater explorations to share with family, friends and colleagues. For some, it's about capturing exciting interactions with marine animals like sharks or seals. For others, the goal is more artistic - highlighting the incredible beauty and stark vistas of the creatures and places that we visit. Photography has long been used to capture these amazing memories, but video is quickly overtaking still photography as the medium of choice. Yet with GoPro and other video systems so readily available, few divers have the expertise and confidence to select and use such video gear comfortably. In March, Mike Lodise from Backscatter Underwater Video and Photo East will introduce divers to the concepts and practices of underwater video and tell us what we need to know to get started including equipment and costs.
Mike Lodise has been a scuba diver since 1978 and an underwater photographer since 1979. As a NAUI, EFR and DAN instructor, he has lots of experience guiding folks in scuba and photography. Mike is also a member of the Boston Sea Rovers, Finatics, and North Shore Frogmen.
