Meet the iDive New England Dive Team
iDive New England
Maura Keane grew up with a passion for the water. Her family would venture to Cape Cod during the summer where she would spend the days swimming and snorkeling. Growing up she spent some summers with family at the Medford Boat Club.
Maura was introduced to the scuba diving world in her 20s, and it was only by chance, while planning for a trip to Thailand. Long story short, she started her certification through United Divers in Somerville, MA and then completed the required open water dives in Koh Phi Phi and Koh Tao, Thailand.
Maura hadn't yet considered scuba diving throughout New England, that was, until she found out about the active colder water diving community. Her first New England dive was Nubble Light, Maine (picture) with the New England Aquarium Dive Club. After that day she was captivated, although it took time build up her own set of gear as well as to build up her network of dive buddies. While a majority of Maura's diving is throughout Rockport and Gloucester, MA, she began to expand her diving throughout the rest of New England.
Her passion for diving has also taken her to places like Azores, Indonesia and Socorro Islands with Blue Green Expedition as well as Belize, Cozumel, Key Largo and cenote diving in Mexico.
