The awesome Jill Heinerth will be giving a talk at Wraysbury Dive Centre on Sunday 26th July at 6pm.Jill HeinerthThis is a ticket only event so please check out the link to reserve your ticket.More people have walked on the moon, than have been to some of the places that Jill’s exploration has taken her right here on the earth. From the most dangerous technical dives deep inside underwater caves, to searching for never before seen ecosystems inside giant Antarctic icebergs, to the lawless desert border area between Egypt and Libya while a civil war raged around her, Jill’s curiosity and passion about our watery planet is the driving force in her life.
Jill’s accolades include induction into the Explorer’s Club and the inaugural class of the Women Diver’s Hall of Fame. She received the Wyland ICON Award, an honor she shares with several of her underwater heroes including Jacques Cousteau, Robert Ballard and Dr. Sylvia Earle. She was named a “Living Legend” by Sport Diver Magazine and selected as Scuba Diving Magazine’s “Sea Hero of the Year 2012.”
In recognition of her lifetime achievement, Jill was awarded the inaugural Sir Christopher Ondaatje Medal for Exploration. Established by the Royal Canadian Geographical Society in 2013, the medal recognizes singular achievements and the pursuit of excellence by an outstanding Canadian explorer.

Several Aquanauts are attending, so please come and join us. Sunshine is predicted, so bring a picnic! Arthur will have the bar and the Wraysbury kitchen open as well, so this should be a great social evening as well.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWe have had some interest in midweek diving so are coordinating a couple of dates in August.

We will be looking at dives in the max 30m range to open it to as wide number of divers as possible and in the main off the Sussex coast to keep travelling to a minimum (although we will consider further afield)

Three dates already in mind are Thursday 6th August and Monday 17th August with Channel Diver, and also a Swanage day with Swanage Boat Charters on August 13th.

– Thursday 6th August Brighton ARIEL & INDIANA 28m &12m 07.30am £50

– Thursday 13th August Swanage KYARRA & DRIFT 30m & 12-15m  09.45am £22 per dive

– Monday 17th August E’bourne LALEN MENDI 28mtrs 11.45am £50

These wont be ‘organised’ trips as such, individuals will be responsible for booking and paying their own place on the trip with the dive operator, but we can give advice and point you in the right direction and help coordinate lifts etc.

Let me know if you are interested!
