The History of Diving Museum’s (HDM) “Immerse Yourself” lecture series welcomes author, aquanaut and explorer Ian Koblick for an “Always an Adventure under the Water” presentation on Wednesday, Oct. 18 at 7 p.m. 

Koblick will take attendees through the world of underwater archaeology, habitats and more. His oceanographic career has spanned the last half century. From treasure diver, to one of America’s first aquanauts, Koblick broke barriers in saturation diving, including designing underwater habitats. 

In 2005, he formed the Aurora Trust Foundation, an organization focused on nautical archaeology and the discovery of sunken ships primarily located in the Mediterranean and Caribbean seas. 

Koblick will speak on his adventures in diving before there were rules, the people he has dived with along the way and his connection to sea and space. 

Come early to view the museum’s exhibits, including the featured exhibit “Aquanauts to Astronauts.” The last exhibit admission ticket will be sold at 6:15 p.m. People can also purchase a signed copy of Koblick’s new book, “The Koblick Chronicles” in the museum gift shop.

Those interested in attending the lecture in-person may reserve a seat by calling the museum at 305-664-9737 or emailing [email protected]. For those unable to attend in-person, visit DivingMuseum.org for a virtual Zoom link. This session will also be recorded and posted to the HDM YouTube channel.
