Gaby Carpenter's Gallery:


I am a Southern California native and learned to dive in the kelp forests of the Pacific. Since moving to Boston, I have fallen in love with even colder water diving. I recently received my Master’s in Marine Biology and hope to continue to use scuba diving to conduct research as well as teach new divers how to respect and love the ocean through good buoyancy.

Peirce Island, NH - so many nudibranchs!
