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!

With over two thirds of the world’s surface covered in water, divers can enjoy a lifetime of rewarding and diverse dive experiences. But traveling to distant countries can be an arduous challenge all by itself. In November, three of the Club’s hardened travel veterans will discuss their own personal tips and advice for dive travel. Andrea Dec will discuss how to choose a suitable dive destination, talk about arranging accommodations like flights and hotels, and how to negotiate the best prices. Andrea will also discuss planning travel days to make the experience most enjoyable and avoid pitfalls.
Darlene Deschambeault will share thoughts on travel issues. Getting to a remote dive destination leaves lots of room for travel problems, and Darlene will offer some tips and advice that can help divers avoid many issues or handle issues with confidence.
Mike Royer has frequently traveled to China, Taiwan and Malaysia for years. Mike will share tips that smooth out the experience of travelling coach, save embarrassment at the airport, and protect you from mistakes made by sleep deprived "zombie" travelers. Learn how to arrive safely with no worries.
