Join us for a Date@8 shore dive!
Date @ 8 (Date @ 10 During The Winter!!!)

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!
