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!

Double-feature: “Showdown at Tiger Beach” and “Wine Diving in Croatia”
In September, we'll be joined by Paul Cater Deaton from his home in Texas for a personal screening of two of his films: Showdown at Tiger Beach As an homage to Lloyd Bridges, Sea Hunt, and the black & white television shows of his youth, documentary filmmaker Paul Cater Deaton brings us Showdown at Tiger Beach. On location 25 miles off the coast of Grand Bahama, PCD joined an expedition with Epic Diving and famed Discovery Channel shark shooter, Joe Romeiro, for some of the most high-voltage diving of his life. At times surrounded by 12 large tigers, and dozens of other sharks, the divers found a target-rich environment for filming animal behaviors and heart-stopping human interaction. Wine Diving in Croatia Croatia is a land of beauty, history and wine. Its undersea world offers serene, captivating dive sites and marine life, shipwrecks, and ancient artifacts. Meet an enterprising vintner who has made the sea a cellar for his amphora-encased wines. Join PCD as he explores the secrets of the Adriatic Sea.
Paul Cater Deaton is an award-winning writer, producer, director and cinematographer. Based in Galveston, he works all over the world on film, TV, music video and documentary projects. He was one of the original three filmmakers selected to produce for Ocean in Google Earth, creating pieces for the Red Sea, Mediterranean, Western Indian Ocean, Great Barrier Reef, Philippines, Coral Triangle and Gulf of Mexico/Caribbean Sea focus areas.
