Jill Heinreth - Book Signing - October 31

World renowned cave diver, explorer, photographer, videographer and author, Jill Heinreth will be at Dive Connections on Thursday, October 31 from 3pm to 6pm to meet our community and fellow scuba enthusiasts and to answer questions about her life and her new book, 'Into the Planet".

"Into the Planet" is a thoroughly engaging memoir of Jill's life as one of the worlds top cave divers.  Jill's resume as a cave diver includes important dives around the globe, work on expeditions for National Geographic, PBS and the BBC, and consulting for movies for director James Cameron and others.

Jill is a member of the Explorers Club, a fellow of the National Serological Society and a member of the Women Divers Hall of Fame. In 2013 she was awarded the first ever Christopher Ondaatje Medal for Exploration by the Royal Canadian Geological Society and in 2016 she was named as the first Explorer-in-Residence for that society.

Please come join us on October 31 and help us welcome Jill to our community.  Refreshments will be available. There is no charge and the event is open to the public.

This surely will be a real treat for those who attend.

We Support Area Scuba Programs


At Dive Connections, we believe that it is important to reach out and help young people get into diving and to acquire dive leadership skills.  We support several school programs and partner with them to provide training and travel opportunities.  In most cases these programs are led and taught, at least in part, by the students themselves.  Here are links to more information about these programs.
