The “ANDREA DORIA of the Pacific”
John will speak about the ship wreck of the Russian liner MIKHAIL LERMONTOV. The ship sank in Port Gore Bay, Marlborough Sound at a depth of 37 meters (121 feet).
I started diving late in life over 20+ years ago. My two sons and I became divers together and made our first ocean dive in Barbados and what a great dive it was. After 10 years of training and diving I was invited to become a mate on the Jeanne II out of Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn NY. I work the boat for five years, weekends, special charters, night dives etc.
After that I was offered a part time job working for Scuba Network in NJ and attended school and classes to train as service tech – regulators etc. for another five years.
I liked diving in the South Pacific, New Zealand, Australia, Fiji, and other island. I also enjoy California, La Paz Mexico – that is both sides of Mexico – (The Pacific & Caribbean Islands), Bahamas, Bermuda Florida to Rhode Island … and let’s not forget Canada!
