Using funds supplied by the School of Marine Sciences we were able to acquire four sets of scuba gear in the summer of 2010.  The high quality BCDs, regulators, dive computers, and weight systems were immediately put to use by UMaine students enrolled in SMS491-Introduction to Research Diving.  In the Fall of 2010 we recieved a grant to purchase 6 additional scuba units for use by students in our scientific diver training program.

The UMaine Scientific Diving Program wishes to express our gratitude to everyone who has provided assistance for our diving scientists and students.  In addition to assistance provided from within the University,  Aqua Diving Academy and Halcyon Manufacturing, Inc. have been key partners during this process.

Please help us continue the tradition of scientific diving at UMaine.  The Office of University Development has established a gift account to receive contributions made on behalf of UMaine divers.  Any funds donated by alumni or friends of the program will be used exclusively to acquire scuba equipment to assist UMaine students and scientists who wish to conduct underwater research.  If you are interested in contributing to the UMaine Scientific Diving Program, please contact Diving Safety Officer, Chris Rigaud at, or simply click on Donate Now.
