Dive Influencer Changes ‘Old Thinking’ With Scuba Into Modern Times

SANDUSKY – Even among the arguably best equipped scuba explorers on the Great Lakes, there are still times when they just don’t want to get wet, but as Dusty Klifman points out, thanks to great advances in modern technology, even then the exploration can go further.

Klifman, an explorer, diver, shipwreck hunter, remote vehicle pilot and photographer based in Michigan, owns and operates Blueyes Below, which creates and publishes content on various social media platforms, such as YouTube, Facebook and Instagram.

Klifman recently spoke with more than a hundred of his fellow shipwreck hunters and Great Lakes enthusiasts representing all levels of expertise last weekend at the 37th Annual Shipwrecks and Scuba Symposium 2021 at Kalahari Resorts in Sandusky, where he spoke about diving and exploration in the modern age. .

“Now, arguing that you’re one of the best-equipped explorers currently on the Great Lakes, in this room (at the symposium) — you’d better let that claim stay,” said Mike Wachter, co-chairman, organizer and emcee of Shipwrecks and Scuba 2021.

Dusty Klifman spoke to more than a hundred of his fellow shipwreck hunters and Great Lakes enthusiasts this past weekend at the 37th Annual Shipwrecks and Scuba 2021 Symposium held at Kalahari Resorts in Sandusky.

Wachter said their committee wants to bring in at least one new presenter each year who has never spoken at the symposium before.

“I looked at (Klifman’s) YouTube stuff and put my thumb on the scale, and I don’t do that very often, and said, ‘Oh yeah, it’s coming,'” said Wachter.

“I absolutely love shipwrecks,” Klifman said. “I love exploration and I love the Great Lakes. I live and work here.”
