Okay, so this is pretty cool and worth checking out: The Deep Sea by Neal Agarwal
My name is Lino Miani, I’m the President of a charitable organization called the Combat Diver Foundation. I wanted to make you and your members at ‘Napa Dive’ aware of a fundraiser we are doing in September which they will find interesting.
The Combat Diver Foundation will be hosting a charity dive/concert in Pensacola to raise money to preserve the history of an elite subset of the Special Operations community. We will be auctioning off slots for the charity dive through our website. I imagine your members will be interested in the opportunity to dive with Special Forces Combat Divers, get an up close look at our equipment, and to tip a glass with our Dive Supervisors.
A little about us:
The Combat Diver Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity dedicated to preserving the history of the elite Combat Diver community. Our ultimate goal is the construction of the Combat Diver Museum that will serve as a home for the artifacts of our brotherhood. You can read more about us at www.combatdiver.org.
Our event is called the Deep Dive 2019 and will be a charity dive/concert at the Flora-Bama Lounge. The event page is combatdiver.org.
The Event: Steve Mandel of Oceans 360 will be speaking about ocean conservation. He will show immersive 3-D virtual reality video using virtual reality (VR) headsets to help raise awareness of the beauty, fragility, and importance of our oceans. Assistants on hand will ensure that everyone has a chance to see the videos!

Breathe underwater with total freedom! This SCORKL looks like it could be fun… that is if their claims of meeting scuba industry standards is true and correct. The Scorkl, with about 12 minutes of pumping, claims to provide up to 10 minutes of air-time, and can be used within a maximum of 66 feet (3 BAR/ATM = 20 meters or 66 feet). For those that choose to purchase Scorkl — PLEASE read and heed their safety warnings about the proper use of this device, quality of air, potential dangers, and their very strong recommendation that non-scuba trained users should not use the Scorkl below 3 meters depth (9.8 feet).
