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 look forward to exploring the warm and welcoming waters of the Caribbean, but diving Cuba has long been an unattainable goal due to political and legal restrictions. As the political climate normalizes the island nation, US divers are finally able to set their sights on this relatively unknown destination. Teaming with the Woman’s Diving Hall of Fame and Oceans Doctors, Susan Copelas participated in the first group to legally journey to Cuba and dive in 2014. The team didn’t just dive. They also worked to open dialogs with local tourism, rural development, marine biologists, and conservation leaders looking to welcome American divers to Cuban waters. Susan will speak about her trip, the locations that her group explored, and tell divers what they might expect in the coming years.
Susan Copelas is a scuba instructor, environmental protection advocate, youth educator and ocean advisor for 35 years. Susan’s company, Dive the World, has allowed her to explore many of the most remote locations on Earth and work to protect the world’s marine habitats.
