If you haven't liked up yet... what are you waiting for!?
Speaking of presentations.....
We have a great group of Divers, Charter Captains and Marine Biologists already confirmed for our first Squalus Marine Dive Seminar! Things are shaping up for a wonderful afternoon in January! (Whats else is there to do for divers in January? Unless your off in your drysuit!) When we have everyone confirmed and everything is set in stone, we will be sure and let you know. There are going to be cool prizes and you can pick up authentic SQUALUS GEAR! If you are interested in sponsoring us and helping us get the message out about diving, shoot us an email at email@example.com
A lot of people wonder why we do what we do? Here's why...
The Long Island Sound is not the easiest place to dive. It has serious issues with visibility depending on the wind, the rainfall, the moon and the substrate and the dive buddy! Some days are good and some days are not so good. Diving with large groups at once can silt you out in no time. We just refuse to give up on it. However, its right here and it has so many secrets and incredible stories to tell. Some of those stories are tragic shipwrecks that litter the bottom.
The Sound has some shallow spots that are a lot easier than the deeper shipwrecks and require less training. Shallow sites offer better light penetration and better light penetration offers more colors! (Now don't get too crazy! We are talking yellows, greens, oranges and reds. Check out the videos inshore off Milford on our dive map!) We hope to illustrate to people that diving here is a real possibility! If you still don't think diving is for you, you can still see what is under the surface and share it with others! We feel it is important to keep the stories of past shipwrecks alive to honor those souls that were lost. This is our local history and it should be passed down. Hopefully we can do that as we continue to film.
If you would like to learn more about getting certified you might consider coming to our seminar! You can also email us with any questions you have about diving or certifications at firstname.lastname@example.org!
The more people learn about the bottom of The Long Island Sound and see there are things worth saving... The more people will care.
Here is a juicy sonar image of a site we will investigate next year!
Thanks for diving with us and we look forward to seeing you underwater!
