Click to hide meeting description

Explore the underwater world off the coast of Honduras! From squid and golden tailed eels to butterflyfish and parrotfish, there is much to see in every color and shape. Search for red mantis shrimp in the shallows and watch for trumpetfish as they change color among the blue tang. Looks for the odd shapes of the pufferfish and trunkfish, or maybe even an ocean triggerfish. Come learn more about this Caribbean diving destination.

As a long time scuba diver, Joy also helps to raise awareness and educate the public about the marine world through her work as a board member of Boston Sea Rovers and the New England Aquarium Dive Club. As a wildlife photographer, Joy has photographed animals here in the NE, across the US and around the world. She also incorporates her photos and videos into her presentations on wildlife and Nature Travel presentations. For more about Joy visit

Upcoming General Meetings

We are currently holding our monthly general meeting in-person and over zoom, so members can attend in whatever way they feel comfortable. If you want to attend a meeting remotely, sign up on our registration page. We will send you the connection info before the meeting.

We are once again able to hold a drawing to dive in the Giant Ocean Tank at the Aquarium! Due to Aquarium staffing, we are currently only able to hold it every other month, but we plan to have an alternative prize on the other months. This is for members who attend our in-person meetings, and you must be present to win.

Surfrider/NEADC Beach Cleanup

Join the New England Aquarium Dive Club for our upcoming beach cleanup and post-cleanup social co-hosted with our friends at Surfrider Massachusetts!

We will be at Nantasket Beach in Hull. There is plenty of parking, and we plan to head to a local restaurant afterwards

Location : DCR Nantasket Beach (South End, Near Murray Bathhouse), 212 Nantasket Avenue, Hull, MA 02045
Date : Saturday, September 23, 2023
Time : 10:00 am-12:00 pm**** with a post-cleanup social at 1:00 pm at The Parrot,1 Hull Shore Drive, on Nantasket Beach

Registration Link :

Since it is after Labor Day, free parking is available nearby in public lots. Alternatively, the beach is a 2.2 mile walk or bike ride from Nantasket Junction Station on the Greenbush Line. If you might benefit from assistance getting to the event location, please reach out and we'll do our best to help.

This location is theoretically transit accessible via the 714 MBTA bus, but service is infrequent and requires multiple connections to reach the core of the MBTA system (via Nantasket Junction on the Greenbush Line or the 220 Bus from Quincy Center to Hingham Junction).

Look for the blue Surfrider Flag to find our exact meeting point on the day! We'll plan to meet on the beach near the Murray Bathhouse.

We'll have all the gear needed for the cleanup, but please bring some reusable work gloves and drinking water (in a reusable bottle!) if you have them! If you have any questions in advance, please feel free to reach out to Alex at
