This event is created to give an opportunity to be able to become a member and dive off the GLSPS Research Vessel without being on a project. It is a chance to see how the GLSPS engages in their projects aboard the vessel.
We are inviting both members and non-members to join us for this experience. The fees that are associated with this event are $60.00 or $35.00. The $60.00 includes, food, air-fills between dives and a GLSPS "Crew" Membership for Non Members. The $35.00 fee is for current members to split food costs and air-fills between dives. This also is sleeping aboard the RV Preservation if you desire. If you are already a member, the fee will only be $35.00. If interested, please register for this really cool event.
The diving itinerary is listed below.
If you have any questions about the event, please contact Lee Fredrickson. Contact info below.
With Lee F as your Program Leader, his humor will guarantee you a good time!
We hope to see a few familiar and new faces.
