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.
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!

***** WE'RE BACK TO IN-PERSON MEETINGS! *****Vin Malkoski:
"The Diver’s Guide to Harvest in Massachusetts"
Many divers are confused by the regulations and more than a few don’t realize that a recreational fishing license is required to take finfish while diving regardless of the gear type used. This presentation is a review of the rules and regulations that apply to diver harvest in MA waters and discussion about the regulations and biology of the animals. Questions are encouraged. Come find out how to stay out of trouble while catching dinner!
Vin Malkoski is a Senior Marine Fisheries Biologist and the Diving Safety Officer for the Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries. Over his 40 years with the agency, Vin has worked on many different projects including managing the Division’s Environmental Review and Artificial Reef projects, serving as the horseshoe crab biologist, and performing impact assessment studies on Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station. He is a long-time member of the Bay State Council of Divers, a Boston Sea Rover, and serves as a board member on the MA Board of Underwater Archeology. Vin has been a New England diver for 47 years and continues to dive whenever he can and in as many locations as possible.
Please join us for the MetroWest Dive Club's General Meeting for the presentation.
