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 Minot Light Underwater Archaeology Project takes participants back to April of 1851 when "The Perfect Storm" of that era took down the original spindle Minot Light with the loss of both lighthouse keepers. In October, Bob Michelson will follow scientists as they search for and discover the remains of this historic light resting in over 40 feet of water off the coasts of Cohasett and Scituate. Exclusive underwater photographs will show how divers confirmed the location by comparing the images to lithographs from the designer of the 1851 light house.
Bob Michelson is a published underwater photographer and videographer who has been diving for 37 years. He is a PADI Dive Master, a Specialty Instructor in Underwater Photography, Videography, and Naturalist. Michelson provides educational workshops and seminars to school groups and organizations throughout the Northeast.
