For those of you with children who are interested in diving and diving history, be sure to pick up a copy of Deep Diving Adventures. The diving consultant for the book was John Hoover, the Executive Director of UHEXSO. The book is for ages 9-12 and is available at bookstores or on AMAZON.COM.

The book covers deep submersibles diving, some of the famous firsts in diving and has sections on Eugenie Clark, Norbert Wu and of course Sylvia Earle. The book is well illustrated and is a good read for children and adults.

Take a virtual dive with UHEXSO divers Richard Lowe in his Siebe Gorman and Paul Schenk in his USN MK-V. The video was taken during one of UHEXSO's dive rallies at Aquarena Springs, San Marcos, Texas. Video courtesy of SJD Underwater Video Productions, Austin, Texas.
