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!

Divers are always interested in exploring new and exciting locations with ample and diverse marine life. The Philippines lies within the famous Coral Triangle of the Indo Pacific – an area known for its amazing biodiversity. Colorful nudibranchs, dazzling fish, whale sharks and rare underwater critters are regulars in the Philippines. In April, popular speaker Andy Martinez pays another visit to the Club to recount his most recent trip to Dumaguete and Anilao in the Philippines and share a selection of wonderful photos from the journey.
Andy Martinez has been diving and photographing marine life for over 40 years. His work has been published in many dive, travel and nature magazines in this country and around the world. His book “Marine Life of the North Atlantic” is a popular field guide to this region. Pier at the End of the World, his new children’s book, was released in the Fall of 2014.
