Workshops

Get the most of your weekend with the Boston Sea Rovers. The films on Saturday night will blow you away, the daytime speakers are world class, and the exhibit hall covers all aspects of diving. But don’t forget about the workshops.

The workshops are an important component of the clinic; after all the Boston Sea Rovers are dedicated to increasing awareness and appreciation of the marine environment. The workshops provide a unique opportunity for direct interaction with teachers eager to share their expertise.

Photo editing techniques, hands-on regulator service, an introduction to rebreather diving, visual tank inspection, and much more at your fingertips. Just take a short break from the rest of the clinic and attend a great workshop. And start next dive season with a great new set of skills.
