Check out the video above for Episode 8 of the new documentary series that follows Colorado students on a scuba diving and marine science adventure of a lifetime.
This eighth episode features the students learning more scuba skills taught at Ocean First and then a special lecture by Dr. Mikki McComb Kobza, the shark expert.
The scholarship will allow them to get their open water scuba certification, a full set of dive gear including wetsuit, fins, mask and snorkel, and a BCD, and a marine science education. Plus, they will be flown to the Florida Keys in June to finalize their training.
Throughout the show, the students will be learning from leading marine scientists and be embarking on special thought-provoking expeditions.
A Rising Tide is hosted by Mehgan Heaney-Grier, the freediving champion, ocean conservationist and TV Personality. Created by Matt Abraxas of New Focus Films and produced by Graham Casden of Ocean First and Mehgan Heaney-Grier.
