Check Out This Chance To Dive In Vintage Dive Gear!


The History of Diving Museum is hosting a “Vintage Dive Weekend” at Jules’ Undersea Lodge in Florida where certified divers will get a chance to dive in classic dive gear.

The event is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, April 1-2, 2023 from 10:00am to 4:00pm.

Certified divers can embark on an underwater tour in the lagoon around the facility, using a double-hose regulator as seen in “Sea Hunt” and Jacques Cousteau’s “Silent World.”

Each day will showcase diving demonstrations with various hardhat helmets, including a Mark V and Miller-Dunn, plenty of photo ops, food by M.E.A.T. Eatery, art activities and games for those in attendance. Spectator admission is US$15 (~€14).

The Underwater Diving Experience is $75 (~€70) per person, with each attendee receiving a free pass to the History of Diving Museum in Islamorada.

Certified divers will need to pre-register for the “Sea Hunt”-style dive experience, featuring an underwater tour in the lagoon around Jules’ Undersea Lodge using the “classic” double-hose regulator. Participants will also have the opportunity to enter the moon pool and meet Dr. Joe Dituri, who is on a 100-day mission in the underwater habitat.

You can reserve your spot online for both spectators and the underwater diving experience at
