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!

Was Britannic, Titanic's sister ship, always doomed? The largest ship in the world sank in less than one hour in 1916 without explanation. It rested silently 400 feet beneath Greek waters until Jacques Cousteau located it in 1975. It took another 20 years for advances in underwater exploration to allow more than brief glimpses into the ship's mysteries. Determined to learn the truth, pioneering divers extracted tantalizing clues during a series of daring expeditions. Richie Kohler, of Shadow Divers, takes us back to the fateful day when Britannic sank and behind the scenes of 40 years of searching as he helped reveal the truth.
Richie Kohler is a filmmaker, author and explorer whose diving experiences began in the waters surrounding Brooklyn NY, but his passion for diving and exploring shipwrecks has taken him to all corners of the globe. As a founding member of the NY based group the "Atlantic Wreck Divers" Kohler has spent the last 35 years exploring and identifying lost shipwrecks and those exploits have been documented in newspapers, magazines, documentary films and numerous books. Kohler holds nearly every diving qualification, has certified scores of technical divers in advanced diving techniques and has led shipwreck expeditions around the world.
