The We Are Water (2013, 53 minutes) film screening is in collaboration with Celebrate Water Door County. The documentary film gives a first-hand look at the complexity of water below the surface, as Jill Heinerth, a renowned scuba diver, guides the viewer through various water environments. By actually seeing what’s under the water that covers the earth we can better connect with one of our most precious resources.
Captain Jim Robinson will lead us in discussion after the film. Robinson started scuba diving in 1966, prior to any standard certification agencies. When formal certification agencies started he became one of the early licensed dive instructors with (PADI) Professional Association of Dive Instructors in 1970. In 1969 he did his first cave dive in one of the freshwater springs and caves in far north Florida and over the years self-trained himself and others in cave diving. Eventually cave diving formal training and certification was offered and required. He is currently a full cave diver with the (NACD) National Association of Cave Diving and through the (NSS / CDS) National Speleological Society / Cave Diving Section. He has received the Abe Davis Safety Award in cave diving from the NSS/CDS and he was the 58th person to receive the Wakulla Award in cave diving from the NACD. Robinson holds a U.S. Coast Guard Masters License, 100 ton. Robinson is a Door County resident since 1976 and currently owns and operates Shoreline Scenic Cruises & Charters in Gills Rock. Currently they offer lighthouse and shipwreck cruises as well as private charters.
