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!

The Republic of Palau is an archipelago of some 250 islands located in the western Pacific Ocean. Known for its tropical beauty as well as its healthy marine biodiversity, Palau has become an attractive destination for scuba divers the world over. At our October meeting, long-time Club member Jim McKnight will present his exciting trip to Palau in August of 2014. Jim and his wife Nancy, along with Club member John Desmond, spent a week on the live-aboard Palau Tropic Dancer. The diving included some challenging situations such as reef hook diving and some unique experiences (including the famous Jellyfish Lake). The presentation will also include land experiences in this remarkable destination.
Jim McKnight has made over 500 dives including visits to Truk Lagoon, Bikini Atoll, Komodo Island, Lambeth Strait and North Carolina with MWDC.
