Master Scuba Diver Info Night

Have you ever been frustrated on a dive boat because everyone around you seems to be a better diver? Or maybe you have seen someone diving and wish you dived as well has she/he did? Well, now’s your chance to get on the path to diving expertise!

Join Blue Planet instructors as we discuss everything you ever wanted to know about how to become a PADI Master Scuba Diver, the highest recreational dive rating (the “black belt” of scuba diving). We’ll review popular specialty classes as well as the Rescue Diver course — one of the most challenging and rewarding classes every diver will ever take.

When: Thursday, March 2, 2017 starting at 7 PM

LIVE from M.V. Ocearch: Tracking Great White Sharks!

MV OCEARCH

Come join us as Lindsay Laughner, OCEARCH Education Ambassador, speaks with us live from MV OCEARCH!

OCEARCH is a global leader in gathering data (telemetry and biologics) on Great White Sharks and other keystone marine species. It also provides a collaborative environment onboard MV OCEARCH, an at-sea laboratory, where researchers, institutions and expert fishermen come together to safely capture, tag, and release these ocean giants on a specialized hydraulic lift. You can watch OCEARCH and its collaborating scientists work together during the tagging of Mary Lee, a 16 foot 3500 pound Great White Shark that was tagged off Cape Cod, MA here.

2016-03-19 12.52.03

Lindsay is a teacher and volunteer on the OCEARCH education team. In this capacity, she uses the OCEARCH Global Shark Tracker to enhance the OCEARCH STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) curriculum to inspire future generations to be better stewards of the ocean. She has joined OCEARCH on three expeditions, and has collaborated with researchers and scientists to create content that replaces fears with facts and reveal the truth about these balance keepers of the ocean.

For more information about OCEARCH, to download the Global Shark Tracker, or the free STEM curriculum, please visit this site.

When: Wednesday, February  22, 2017 starting at 6:30 PM

Where: Rosemary’s Thyme Bistro (1801 18th Street NW)
