Richard Hyman - Adventures With Cousteau and the Crew of Calypso
Click to show meeting description

Richard is an Aquanaut, Author, Educator, Environmental Advocate and Public Speaker. His first book, FROGMEN, is about his four expeditions as a diver, navigator and photographer aboard Captain Jacques-Yves Cousteau’s ship, Calypso.

He first drove a supply truck from Los Angeles to the Canadian wilderness for a rare land-based Cousteau expedition. There he worked with Cree Indians to build a cabin for the team to winter in and film Beavers of the North Country. Subsequent journeys included diving in Florida with manatee and filming stone crab fishermen off the panhandle. Then in Mexico, where he boarded Calypso, a relatively small and unsteady wooden ship and also camped on an uninhabited island to study and film The Incredible Migration of the Spiny Lobsters. Sailing south, along the 180-mile Belize Barrier Reef, he filmed the spawning of thousands of grouper, The Fish that Swallowed Jonah. Singer songwriter John Denver visited. They dove together and Denver performed a concert on Calypso’s foredeck. On Richard’s final voyage, en route to Venezuela, he experienced treacherous deep dives on the wreck of the USS Monitor off North Carolina, skeletons inside wrecks off Martinique, and the death of Cousteau’s son, Philippe.

Richard is a Distinguished Visiting Professional at Fairfield University’s Center For Applied Ethics and is collaborating with the Dolan School of Business Entrepreneurship Program. Richard serves on the Board of Trustees of Fabien Cousteau’s Ocean Learning Center, and is on the Board of Directors of the Westport Weston Family YMCA.

2019 Annual Tropical Fish Rescue and BBQ (09/14)
We will be seining; which is pulling a fish net through shallow water, up onto the beach, and discover all sorts of marine life, letting the children help gather the fish and marine life collected in the net. There will be a large touch tank set up, for all to enjoy, with lobsters, crabs, starfish, baby tropical fish, etc. As we gather out catch, let our experts teach you about the tropical fish you can observe in our on-site holding aquariums. There will be organized regular scuba diving as well as designated tropical collecting areas.

This is a great family event, especially for the kids!
