About GUE Seattle
Our goal; to build a strong community and a base of world-class divers to support our ultimate vision: Exploration and conservation of our local submerged resources.
GUE Seattle's Vision
Through community outreach programs and dedicated GUE based diver education, we will develop some of the world’s best divers, who can push the envelope in the exploration of historically and ecologically significant submerged resources in local WA State waters. Our exploration projects will have the ultimate goal of gathering consistent observational data and documenting the degradation or appreciation of our submerged resources over time. Through data analysis, we aim to drive policy-changing efforts to conserve, protect and create public awareness for our submerged resources.
GUE Seattle's Goals
Build a strong community and a base of world-class divers to support our ultimate vision: Exploration and conservation of our local submerged resources.
Through social media and Internet resources, establish a core presence for members to interact socially, share the passion, and disseminate information between members and the public.
Host all-inclusive outreach events and dive experiences to create awareness within the dive community and motivate divers to join GUE Seattle, in support of our ultimate Vision.
Offer accessible and frequent local GUE based recreational and technical diver certification courses to grow the skilled diver base to support the Vision.
Host and execute consistent recreational and technical exploration dives on existing, known, and unknown dive targets within in Puget Sound and Lake Washington. Specific locations will be targeted in support of our Vision.
Focus all conservation efforts around the bigger “Project Baseline”, to develop accurate timeline of historical and ecological dive locations and to identify trends in both positive and negative human impact on the underwater environment over time. This will provide a basis for providing information on overall ecological health and creating public awareness of our local submerged resources.
