2011 Legends of Diving


International Legends of Diving Presents
Dr Jose Jones
Voted DEMA Horizon Diver of the Year 2011
August 12-14, 2011
Dr Jones has dived in more than 50 countries, is an underwater photographer and videographer, and holds a seventh degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do. He also served in the US Army and received the Purple Heart. He earned a masters degree in Aquatic Biology and went on to form the Underwater Adventure Seekers of Washington DC in 1959. This club, known for their high standards, is one of the oldest dive clubs, predating most national certifying agencies. In 1991 he co-founded the Science and Education Committee of the National Association of Black Scuba Divers(NABS), and continues to serve as Chairman to this day.

Despite his busy schedule and being named 2005 Rolex Diver of the Year, as well as the 2008 Sport Diver of the Year by Sport Diver Magazine, Dr Jones has always stopped dead in his tracks to help motivate and educate children about diving, the sea, and marine biology. His undying spirit of giving is evident in the thousands of people he has certified at no charge over a period of 50 years. He also serves as an advisor to DAN.

Dr Jones has spent considerable time and effort to discover and document various slave shipwrecks over the years. The Discovery Channel captured the profound moment when Jones placed a plaque on the Henrietta Marie in memory of those slaves lost on the ship.

Join Dr Jones when he shares some of these experiences
with us on Saturday the 13th of August.

Due to popular demand, we have two favorites returning this year: Alec Peirce, expert on Sea Hunt, will be present with his extensive Sea Hunt collection and stories, as well as Bob Croft, Free Diving Legend.
