David Gilchrist has been diving since 1970. He has remained active in diving since certification and is a Master Scuba Diver Trainer with the Professional Association of Diving Instructors.

In the late 1970’s David pursued a serious interest in underwater photography. His exhibits include Freshwater, and Beneath Arctic Waters. A number of images from his most recent exhibit, Haida Gwaii – Beneath the Waves, which depict the marine life of the Queen Charlotte Islands, are currently on display at the Ontario Science Centre. His images have appeared in several magazines and children’s books.


David’s presentation at SHIPWRECKS/97 will be related to the varied diving in the Niagara Peninsula, including a photographer’s view of two shipwrecks – the Raleigh and the Carlingford.
