Shore Dives

This program is designed to bring divers together to dive, socialize, and have fun! Our staff will be there to give you as little or as much assistance as you need. We are there to give you a dive site profile, provide buddy teams, and provide guided dives. This program is perfect for newly certified divers looking for guidance and experience, or any diver looking to have fun!

Participants must sign up at our store

How do I participate?

Participants must register with the store for each dive in which they wish to participate. This will allow us to plan staff accordingly and call you if the dive is canceled due to bad weather. If possible, please let us know at least 24 hours prior to the dive date you would like to participate in.

Meeting Place

For all North Shore dives we will meet at the Burger King on Route 128 North just past exit 19 in Beverly at 8am unless another location is specified. We are recommending carpooling whenever possible. For South Shore or RI dives, ask for the meeting place upon registration.

Weekend Dive Program

Join us for a two tank dive on selected Saturday and Sunday mornings from June to the end of October. One or more of our staff will be there to coordinate the event - assist with dive buddies, dive site profile, and assist you with any equipment issues that may arise. See the schedule below for details.

Night Dive Program

Dive with our staff at night. Many creatures come out to feed at night so you see a lot more marine life. Divers must have a primary dive light, back up light, and tank light.

Note: Participants on the shore dive program must bring their own dive flag. * Tides based on Gloucester Harbor Tides

Please watch for additional dates to come in 2019
