Ahoy, Matey! 

The ocean can be a dangerous, frightening place. Through the years, mariners have encountered pirates who plundered their ships and terrorized their crew, and have seen ghost ships that seemed to be sailing the seas without a trace of their crew. Through it all, these brave seafarers sought explanation for the many mysteries of the sea and comfort from its dangers in legend and folklore.

Along the way, many of the superstitions of the sea will also be discussed.

Eco-Photo Explorers, a New York based organization was formed in 1994 to promote interest in protecting the environment through knowledge and awareness as well as in underwater photography. Photography, multimedia slide presentations, lectures and freelance writing are all used to accomplish this goal. Their photography and writing have been featured in many publications such as Natural Geographic Adventure, Immersed, Advanced Diver, Discover Diving, Diver Magazine, Sport Diving, Lighthouse Digest, WW II Magazine and other national and international magazines. Organizations such as Beneath the Sea (largest consumer dive show in North America), Boston Sea Rovers, Our World Underwater, the JASON Project (founded by Robert Ballard), Long Island Diving Association (LIDA), the  Board of Cooperative Educational Services of Nassau County (BOCES) and the Atlantis Marine World Aquarium has also used their work.  

Christopher Weaver and Michael Salvarezza, who make up Eco-Photo Explorers, live on Long Island, New York, have been scuba diving together since 1978 and started seriously photographing the undersea world in 1989. Since then, they have spent hundreds of hours underwater accumulating and putting together a large and varied library of stock photography.
