Celebrate with a dive this New Year’s Day! Start the New Year off right by joining some of ECD’s winter divers for a brisk dip at one of our favorite sites!

The dive will be slated for an 0900 start at Nubble Light (weather permitting). If the wind is blowing hard (or out of the N/NE) we may reschedule for a protected site off Cape Ann. The ECD crew will bring a warming tent, donuts, and hot cocoa/cider.  Make sure to come equipped with your winter diving essentials:

  • A 7mm+ exposure system (drysuit recommended)
  • Warm clothes to wear between dives and after
  • Hydrating beverages

Consider the following items if you’re diving wet:

  • Hot (not boiling) water in a thermos to pre-warm your suit before entering the water
  • A small cooler of hot water in which you can warm your gloves and hood between dives
  • Reusable “hot snapz” heat packs which you can wear inside your suit or gloves or use for a post-dive thaw

The ECD dive guide will provide a comprehensive briefing and maintain waivers, a shore manifest, first aid equipment, and O2 kit on hand in case of emergencies. You must sign in with the Dive Guide on arrival in order to dive with the ECD team. Please make sure to provide a tip to show appreciation for your dive guide’s hard work if they earn it!
