In this picture, Hard Hat Diving enthusiast Chris Casavant interacts with the audience while swimming with the sharks in the shark tank! The vintage suit has a brass and copper helmet and breastplate from the 1940's.
In addition to the live, "in tank" presentation, members of the Heritage Hard Hat Divers will be on hand to answer questions and discuss, diver equipment from the by-gone days and how it was used.
In addition, the audience will be able to put on one of the old helmets and have their picture taken.
On hand will be dive equipment from the early 1910's through to the 1950's! There will be dive helmets as an example from all around the world.
Please plan to take the kids and the parents to this wonderful weekend at the Aquarium and lean abot the "good ole days" of the diving industry in Canada and around the world from some of the most experienced divers you can meet!
