DIVER Magazine (Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada) was founded by Peter Vassilopoulos in 1974 before being acquired by Dr. Phil Nuytten in 2004. While it still promotes the world class diving opportunities to be found in Canada, DIVER Magazine has become an international publication that also focuses on underwater exploration, conservation, education and entertainment around the globe. Its outstanding advisory board and editorial team of world renowned divers and experts including such names as Jean-Michel Cousteau, Dr. Joe MacInnis, Sylvia Earle and James Cameron, offers unique and unbiased insights into the dive industry, recreational diving, science, robotics, medicine, and digital photography. As of March 2018, DIVER Magazine is published eight times per year in print and is also available as an online publication via an interactive iPad app.
