Diver Ed and Captain Evil (Edna) have operated the Dive-In Theater since 2000, running from the College of the Atlantic, where Ed is an alum. In 2021, the lack of marine life around the Porcupine Islands forced the Dive-In Theater to find an alternate location. Ed and Edna’s good friends operate the whale watching and deep-sea fishing tours in Eastport, and they offered to help. Diver Ed’s favorite Maine dive sites are in Eastport, so he was very excited. They had a great time even though the diving there was extremely challenging. Diver Ed will tell some incredible stories and show you the beautiful underwater world from his summer in Eastport, the eastern-most city in the US. Ed’s dive buddy, Mini-Ed, may even make an appearance.

Diver Ed lives on Poo Lagoon in Town Hill with his wife Captain Evil (Edna) and their two Newfoundland dogs who work on their boats, and their horse, cat & parrot who don’t. Ed has been continually diving since 1982, both commercially and for fun. Edna joined Ed in 2002, got her captain’s license, SCUBA certification, and works as Ed’s dive tender. Every summer they operate the Dive-In Theater, a marine education boat tour. They own several other boats they use for diving work, including harvesting scallops. Diver Ed is also the Master and Commander of their local dive club, the League of Underwater Superheroes, whose members enjoy year-round pleasure diving, locally and afar.

This event is free and open to everyone.

Online presentation

In this program, Luke Gates-Milardo will present documents and artifacts from Maine Maritime Museum's collection to shed light on Maine's â€‹role in the Atlantic slave economy. He will discuss the research challenges involved in uncovering this facet of American history, will provide an overview of the Museum's collaboration with the Bowdoin College Africana Studies Department in curating the exhibit Cotton Town: Maine's Economic Connections to Slavery, and will foster a conversation on why this and other underacknowledged histories matter for the world today.

Wednesday, April 27, 2022 at Noon

Luke Gates-Milardo, Education and Community Engagement Specialist at Maine Maritime Museum, designs and delivers creative, experiential learning opportunities for museumgoers of all ages. He is particularly interested in using artifacts to emphasize historically underrepresented stories and perspectives, supporting students in reinterpreting their understanding of history through such critical lenses as environmentalism, social justice, and the arts.

This event is free and open to everyone.

NOTE: THIS PRESENTATION HAS BEEN POSTPONED

In this important presentation, Garrett Martin will share his thoughts on the impact of the Biden administration's programs on the state of Maine and our people.

A generation removed from poverty, he made his way to Maine after working in community economic development in the Mississippi Delta, southern India, and Latin America.

Garrett combines his commitment to providing credible and rigorous economic analysis with his passion for advancing economic justice as President and CEO of the Maine Center for Economic Policy (MECEP). MECEP has been at the forefront of successful efforts to boost incomes and increase access to health care for hundreds of thousands of Mainers.

Garrett Martin is a Truman Scholar and holds a master’s degree in public affairs from Princeton University with a concentration in economics and public policy analysis. He served on the Community Development Advisory Committee of the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston and has taught graduate courses in community economic development at the University of Southern Maine. In addition to his work at MECEP, Garrett coaches his local high school cross country and track teams and was selected the Maine State Coach of the Year in 2017.
