Kevin Schapansky is an unprofessional tech/cave diver based out of the San Francisco Bay Area. He has been active with his local GUE group, Bay Area Underwater Explorers, for over a third of a decade. His free time is occupied figuring out the wrong way to shoot underwater video. When not exploring the waters around Monterey he can be found tying blue cave-line on miscellaneous objects.

Diving projects, or expeditions—think Bill Stone’s Wakulla Springs 1987 project, or the original explorations of the Woodville Karst Plain’s Project (WKPP)—helped give birth to technical diving, and today continue as an important focal point and organizing principle for communities like Global Underwater Explorers (GUE). The organization this year unveiled a new Project Diver program, intended to elevate “community-led project dives to an entirely new level of sophistication.” Here, authors Guy Shockey and Francesco Cameli discuss the power of projects and take us behind the scenes of the new program.
