Salem, MA, a Good Spot to Dive
March 12, 2012
Salem News: Instead of taking to the ski slopes this winter, Vinny Egizi took to the water. And not by boat.
“I like to get lobsters,” said Egizi, a 46-year-old Beverly, Massachusetts, resident. “You go down and grab them with your hands from the back and put them in a bug bag.”
Egizi can be found on the weekends squeezing into his wet suit; strapping on a diving tank, mask and flippers; and plunging into Salem Harbor. He’s a certified scuba diver, and though the North Shore is far from the warm waters of tropical islands usually associated with scuba diving, Egizi said that’s not a problem for many in the area.
