Vancouver Underwater Explorers Speakers Series

The Underwater Archaeological Society of British Columbia’s Lower Mainland Chapter holds regular monthly meetings in the beautiful city of Vancouver, BC. At each meeting the UASBC invites a new guest to give a presentation on various archaeological, exploration or diving topics. The Underwater Explorers Speaker Series is a great opportunity to learn from experts, get involved with the UASBC, and to meet fellow UASBC members and divers.

Regular meetings are held on the last Wednesday of each month (except July and August) at 7:30pm at the Vancouver Maritime Museum - 1905 Ogden Avenue, Vancouver. Everyone is welcome and there is no cost.

Please contact the Lower Mainland director by email for more information.
