About the Boston Sea Rovers
The Boston Sea Rovers is a 501C3 not for profit volunteer organization dedicated to increasing awareness and appreciation of the marine environment. We are one of the oldest and most distinguished underwater clubs in America , and have a worldwide reputation of excellence. While the membership has changed repeatedly over the years, we still hold true to a pledge that was inspired in 1954, and we remain dedicated to “Raising the Level of Knowledge of the Underwater World”. In order to achieve this lofty goal, the early members of the club designed and invented the first underwater film show available to the general public. They called that first production a Clinic, and we have held the event every year since.
The Clinic now comprises an entire weekend, which is typically the second full weekend in March. The event is held at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel-Boston North Shore. The Clinic consists of a world renowned film festival where international underwater film makers present and premier their most recent works, over forty daytime seminars covering a wide variety of topics, workshops focused on hands-on training, and an exhibit hall filled with equipment, travel destinations, dive clubs, and more.
Come see us at Booth 31 & 31!

Film Screening and Discussion
In a world of uncertainty, one of the ecosystems emblematic of the need for balance is the coral reef. Bonaire Bonanza is a success story of good reef management on the Caribbean island of Bonaire, where scientists and citizens work together to manage and protect the reefs. This documentary by George Buckley and Dutch filmmaker Edward Snijders won the Palme d’Or Award in Marseilles.
Tonight’s screening of Bonaire Bonanza includes a discussion session with George Buckley who narrated and advised on the film.
George Buckley is the co-founder and Assistant Director of Sustainability and Environmental Management Program at Harvard Extension School. He is an expert scuba diver who has led hundreds of students to study the sea. He has been a long-time Associate at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, and chief scientist on some two dozen Earthwatch Expeditions on marine ecology and field studies on coral reefs, bay ecology, horseshoe crabs, fresh water clams and land snails. He is the Chairman of Bonaire’s Accolade Foundation and Director of the Marine Ecology Project.
His awards include the Palme d’Or for his film Bonaire Bonanza, the EPA’s Lifetime Achievement Award, and the Beneath the Sea (BTS) Diver of the Year. It was when he worked on the award-winning NOVA TV program, “The Sea Behind the Dunes,” that he began his career in environmental filmmaking.
