2018 officers

There are several officer positions that will be open next year, and we would love to get as much interest as we can as early as possible.

ANYONE IS ENCOURAGED TO RUN FOR ANY POSITIONS! Some officers may be running again, but don't let that stop you from running - we'd love to have elections with multiple candidates.

If you have some ideas for the club, or you want to see something happen, become an officer. Look for officer duty descriptions on the by-laws, or email an officer.

E/V Nautilus

Deep beneath the surface of the ocean are remnants of an ancient world and creatures that you could never imagine. Join friend of the NEADC and science teacher, Amy Fleischer, as she relates her 22-day voyage on Dr. Robert Ballard’s Exploration Vessel Nautilus. Equipped with the ROVs Hercules and Argus and new mapping technology from the University of New Hampshire and the University of Rhode Island, the ship explored paleocoastlines in the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary off the coast of southwestern California this past July.

ROV

Amy will share the stories and videos from the exploration of ancient submerged shorelines, sea caves, and relic coral reefs, as well as encounters with sharks, rays, whales, sea lions, fish, and an incredible array of invertebrates.

Amy Fleischer

Amy Fleischer teaches seventh and eighth grade science at Nauset Regional Middle School in an integrated program of life, earth and physical science. Much of her work, including teaching the glaciation that created Cape Cod, directly relates to the area.

Tropical fish Rescue: September 23, 2017 Click here to hide details

Tropical fish come up the gulf stream as eggs on broken seaweeds, hatch, and make their way into the warm eddies and nooks and crannies of the southern New England coast.. Seeing these little waifs is fun, trying to catch them is a challenge. Easy diving - no deeper than 25 feet - often 10-15 feet works, in fact snorkeling at low tide is as successful as diving at high tide!


Tropical Fish Rescue This Weekend!

The tropical fish rescue is this weekend! At the moment, NOAA has a high surf advisory (through Friday), but the weather looks great for the picnic.

Hurricane Jose is now a "Post-Tropical Cyclone" and still sitting off-shore, and everyone should keep an eye on the current marine forcast for Rhode Island before deciding whether to dive. Remember, there is still snorkeling and seining in the shallower water - with just as much chance of seeing tropical fish. Plus, the great food, and games at the cookout!

People will be Diving/Snorkeling throughout the event (9:30am to 4:30 pm), and Seining starts at 11am in the shallows. We will have cookout food available from 11:30am-2pm ($7 per plate)

Staff from the New England Aquarium and others will be actively looking for fish for their exhibits. We will have tanks set up to display the fish we find, and we will have a touch tank with other marine critters.

Visit the website for all the info about the Tropical Fish Rescue, and some tips for catching fish. It should be a great event, and we will see you there!

Bay State Council of Divers 32nd Annual Treasure Hunt (09/17/17)
The annual Bay State Council of Divers (BSC) Underwater Treasure Hunt competition is their major fundraiser. It is an enjoyable family event providing an opportunity to meet new dive buddies, compete in a friendly environment and win prizes while supporting the Bay State Council of Divers. Although traditionally scheduled as an early-season event, this year we moved it into September, prime time for diving, to give us better weather and water conditions. It was a great time for the whole family
