  • Dry Dive: Spring 2022

Join the dive club for a tour of the best dive sites on Cape Ann. We will be driving all over Rockport, Gloucester, and the surrounding areas and point out the highlights of each site, and any tips we have for entrance/exit, or what to look out for.

Along the way, we will be collecting any trash or debris on the beach, and properly dispose of it. We will be doing a cleanup at each stop until we run out of space in the truck for trash.

  • Whale Watch: TBD

    Join the New England Aquarium Dive Club for a day seeking right whales, humpback whales and Atlantic white-sided dolphins on Stellwagen Bank. Knowledgeable and enthusiastic naturalists will be on board to identify and provide information on the species we see.

  • World Oceans Day at the NEAq: Summer 2022

Join the dive club at the New England Aquarium to celebrate the oceans!

Coming back for the 20th year, you can help count fish and win prizes! Each year divers help researchers by surveying fish populations. This is done by identifying what fish you see on a dive. After the dive, we gather at Stage Fort Park in Gloucester, for raffle prizes and a BBQ!

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!

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

There will be seining from shore, music, raffles, and of course diving and a great variety of food.

Never caught tropical fish before? Let our experts show you how. Extra collecting nets will be available.

All are welcome. Join us for a fun filled day!

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 show you where to see fish, and teach you about the tropical fish you can observe in our on-site holding aquariums.
