Boston Sea Rovers — This Weekend

Join the Boston Sea Rovers—one the world’s oldest underwater enthusiast societies—for their annual show this weekend, Saturday and Sunday, March 8 and 9, at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Boston North Shore in Danvers, Mass. In addition to more than 35 fun, visually stunning and educational 45-minute presentations, an exhibit hall filled with manufacturers, travel companies, dive organizations and a Saturday-evening film festival that features today’s notable filmmakers presenting clips of their recent works.

This historic group was started by some avid divers about 60 years ago with a goal to raise the level of awareness of the underwater world. They would meet regularly and hold a yearly clinic on the new advancements of scuba diving. This clinic has now evolved and transformed itself into being known as the world’s longest-running underwater show.

Now, once per year, this incredible event takes shape. Underwater explorers, scientists, filmmakers and photographers from around the world gather to present their latest discoveries and creations to the public. Notables such as Jacques Cousteau, Dr. Sylvia Earle, Dr. Robert Ballard, Stan Waterman and Brian Skerry (the New England Aquarium's Explorer in Residence and National Geographic photographer), have graced the show with their incredible works.

This year’s show will be held on Saturday, March 8, and Sunday, March 9. Check out the Boston Sea Rover's website for more information about workshops and presenters.

Make it an underwater weekend and include a visit to the New England Aquarium, too, where you'll meet some of the underwater residents of our blue planet and watch scuba divers glide amid swirling schools of fish in the Giant Ocean Tank.
