February

Event type: Diving Trip

Date: February 2, 2022 to February 13, 2022

Description:

This trip is currently full. See the above for another Antarctica opportunity!

This GUE diving adventure is exclusive to GUE Members and offers an incredible range of experiences as well as unique insight into the environmental challenges facing the polar regions. Join GUE principals, including President Jarrod Jablonski, and an expedition staff of geologists, marine biologists, cetacean scientists, ornithologists, and professionals from other disciplines. Participants can also support dedicated Project Baseline dive sites during the expedition as we coordinate with scientists at Palmer Science Station to determine areas that would best benefit from ongoing research.
 
Start your 12-day trip with a day-long tour of Tierra Del Fuego National Park in Argentina before sailing the Drake Passage and tracing the path of early polar explorers. Witness the splendor of humpback and minke whales breaching the sea amid the many albatross and other birds, all while touring a magnificent series of glaciers and icebergs. Dive among thousands of penguins in addition to leopard seals and a wide range of unique invertebrates. Non-divers and snorkelers are welcome to join specially organized trips.

 This trip is in partnership with Blue Green Expeditions. All proceeds go towards supporting GUE’s nonprofit mission. This unique adventure will sell out quickly, so reserve your spot soon!

Event website: Leading EDGE Performance Workshop

Date: March 18, 2022 to March 19, 2022

Description: The Leading EDGE performance workshop is an opportunity for GUE divers to polish their skills and refresh their memory under the supervision of skilled GUE instructors. The Leading EDGE performance workshop caters to GUE divers of all levels of recreation and technical diving, including CCR. Visit old friends, and make new ones. Enjoy the community aspect of GUE on a Global scale. We have confirmed attendees from five different countries. Talk to cave instructors from Mexico, technical diving instructors from  the South Pacific, and everything in between. Enjoy two catered dinners only a stone's throw from where we will be diving. Normalization of deviance and drift are normal things that happen to us regardless of our experience or training levels. If it was a good idea to take your original training, isn't it also a good idea to revisit them and refresh those originally trained skills?

Certification requirement: Rec 1 or Fundamentals

April

Event type: Project

Location: Sardinia, Italy

Contact: Andrea Marassich, andreamarassich@me.com

Event website: #MapTheGulf - Phreatic project Sardinia 2022 

Date: April 18, 2022 to September 30, 2022

Description: #MapTheGulf - Phreatic project Sardinia 2022 

This year we are organising a cave survey project in Sardinia; it will be run under the flag of Phreatic organisation and we managed to get support and sponsorship by GUE and DAN Europe.
Also, Italian Speleological Society and multiple private companies sponsored the initiative. It is part of the International Year of Karst and Caves initiatives.

The key concept is simple; Caves in the area of operations are amazing but, with very limited exceptions, they are not properly or completely mapped. We want to carry out a general survey/cartography effort in the main springs of the Gulf of Orosei. We will use modern tools like MNemo and Suex DRIVe and Sinapsi, trying to combine the data into a single software and creating an output to be represented on QGis.
There will be multiple sessions, each of them focused on one specific cave, but with the chance to visit also other systems. 
As COVID-19 has decided to stay with us a little longer we do not plan sessions with more than three diving teams.

Some of the local caves are ideal for Cave1 divers due to the benign conditions and the shallow depths; other sites are challenging side mount passages or relatively deep for open circuit and requiring rebreathers and DPVs. In both cases, the goal is to survey and build a core team able to interface throughout the sessions.

Each project session will incorporate a first day with a general briefing and a survey workshop to standardise protocols inside the teams. The next five days will be dedicated to diving operations and data management in the afternoon/evening. 
It is both an opportunity to learn survey procedures with new tools and have fun in a team of goal oriented divers.

Description: To boldly dive where no one dived before...

August

Event type: Project

Location: Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada

Contact: Guy Shockey, GS@GUE.com

Event website: Thermocline Dives the SS Admiral Knight

Date: August 26, 2022 to August 28, 2022

Description: The SS Admiral Knight has been lost for over a century with repeated attempts to locate her and one reported dive on her in 1958. These divers reported an intact wreck at 180' (54m) but there was no confirmation. Since that time no one has put eyes on her. We believe we have good information about where she is but we need to get divers into the water to confirm. This series of dives will provide the information we need to do a more detailed examination and survey later in 2022. Because of the depths, the minimum certification level for this dive is Tech 1, but we will also be trying to put recreational divers on the wreck of the Del Norte, which is in shallower depths and near what we think is the Del Norte. We will be camping on the island near the wreck site and shuttling divers to shore with our RHIBS. This promises to be an exciting opportunity to explore for wrecks on the coast of Vancouver Island!  
There are limited spaces available for this trip. For more information, please contact Guy Shockey.

Certification requirement: Tech 1
