Go scuba diving with the North Shore Frogmen

Founded in 1957, the North Shore Frogmen's Club claims to be the oldest sport-diving club in the world. The group's early years were celebrated in the pages of LIFE magazine, which featured the local divers in a glossy photo spread back in the late 1950s.

For more than 20 years, the Froggies have met every Sunday morning at 8 a.m. at a Beverly rest stop off Route 128. Depending on which way the oversized flag is blowing, they generally head out to either Old Garden Beach in Rockport or Lane's Cove in Gloucester.
