GRAND CAYMAN, Cayman Islands— Dr. Guy Harvey will join an elite group of scuba diving legends next Tuesday, in Grand Cayman when he is inducted into the sport’s hall of fame. The honor comes as Dr. Harvey marks his 40th year as a certified diver, much of that time engaged in underwater photography, filming and studying a variety of saltwater wildlife.
Dr. Harvey holds a Ph.D. in Fisheries Biology and has his studio as well as his home in George Town. He will be inducted into the 2013 International Scuba Diving Hall of Fame along with Rolf Schmidt and Petra Roeglin, Sam Davison, Bert Kilbride and Diving Pioneer Paul Bert. Local Cayman honorees include Norbert Scott and Captain Glen Gleason Ebanks.
Founded in 2000 by the Cayman Islands’ Ministry of Tourism, The International Scuba Diving Hall of Fame was created to establish a link between the Cayman Islands, a leading pioneer in dive travel and a premiere world destination for divers, and the dedicated enthusiasts who have contributed the most to the sport of Scuba Diving the world over.
Dive industry fans from all over the world are invited to join the inductees at a gala dinner and induction ceremony, which will take place in Grand Cayman on Tuesday, November 12th. The following evening an International Underwater Film Festival is planned.
