    What is the admission price? Do Scuba board members get a discount?

    Regular admission to the Museum is $12 for adults. Children 5 -12 years old pay $6 and under 5 are free. If you mention you heard about the Musuem on ScubaBoard, we will give you $1 off per person.

    We also offer group discounts, so if you are thinking of getting a group together, let us know in advance and we'll set you up with a personalized tour and special pricing.

    And by all means say "Hi" to the Director while you are here! I love to meet my ScubaBoard friends in person.

    I was just there Monday. I think we got a $2 discount by mentioning their website.

    We had a great seminar last night with Key West diver Eric Smith of Franck Goddio's team of research, exploration, and excavation divers. Goddio's team focuses on finding and recovering or preserving underwater shipwrecks or sites of historical and cultural significance. Eric talked about what it was like to uncover the ancient city of Alexandria and Cleopatra's palace. I sat in awe and wondered what it would be like to discover a sphinx or other ancient Eqyptian artifact while diving. If you ever have a chance to hear Eric speak, make a point to do so!

    I do a light hearted presentation through the history of a very dry subject - buoyancy compensators. I have a number of vintage BCs and Milestone BCs as well. They eventually will need to be placed in a good home. =D I'm in Seattle and may not be in the keys for a bit though.
