Facebook Live goes for a dive Wednesday with Oceanographic Museum

By Staff Writer - October 17, 2017


The Oceanographic Museum of Monaco and the submarine equipment manufacturer, Beuchat, have partnered to create a unique interactive Facebook Live event … at 30 metres below the surface.

On Wednesday at 12:30 pm EST, this unusual dive, without getting wet, aims to give Facebook users a more direct experience of the biodiversity of the Mediterranean seabed.

A biologist-diver will visit the famous wreck of the “Toulonnais”, an old 27-metre tug long resting since 1991 outside the port of Monaco and since moved to the foot of the Museum. An artificial reef, it constitutes an ideal dive site sheltering rich fauna and flora – brown grouper, lobsters, schools of Anthias, moray eels, and more.

Facebook users will have the unique opportunity to send their questions via Facebook to interact live with the diver equipped with a mask with headphones and a microphone. For 20 minutes, the underwater world will be within reach of those who click.

To take part, sign in @OceanoMonaco @BeuchatDivingFR @SuuntoDivingFrance to follow and share Facebook Live.

Pursuing a joint commitment to the oceans, the Oceanographic Museum and Beuchat – who help equip the divers of the Museum – put the most advanced technologies at the service of the environment.
