NORTHEAST UNDERWATER EXPLORERS
A cornerstone of NEUE’s mission is education. Our founding instructor, Bob Sherwood, teaches GUE classes for both recreational and technical divers and now teaches GUE JJ Rebreather classes.
NEUE efforts include environmental conservation as well as wreck conservation and documentation in the St. Lawrence River. We also participate in the Project Baseline conservation initiative.
Northeast Underwater Explorers (NEUE) is a regional Global Underwater Explorers (GUE) group focused on growing and supporting the GUE community in the Northeastern United States. By connecting divers in this region we facilitate social interaction, diving, and training. For those not familiar with GUE, we provide an introduction to the GUE system.

WE BRING OUT THE BEST DIVER IN YOU
GLOBAL UNDERWATER EXPLORERS
Developing safe, skilled, and knowledgeable divers
Undertaking and promoting underwater research
Pursuing global underwater exploration
Safeguarding the integrity of the underwater world
Global Underwater Explorers emerged out of a shared desire to safely explore and protect the underwater world and to improve the quality of scuba diving education.
Among the diving community GUE is best known for a rigorous style of training that seeks to establish high levels of diver proficiency by extending training time, establishing objective performance criteria, and requiring requalification among its instructors and divers.
Working to redefine the relationship between the average underwater enthusiast to underwater explorers, conservationists, and scientific researchers, GUE is committed to the overall goal of promoting the best interests of the underwater world.
Project Baseline was founded as GUE’s grassroots, environmental conservation initiative and is now a separate non-profit organization. It exists to support people who are invested in water quality and availability by providing a platform that gives voice to otherwise under- or undocumented aquatic areas.
Project Baseline is a global effort designed to record environmental change within the world’s aquatic environments. This change is measured over time by collecting scientifically relevant observations within a framework that enables contributions from those most invested in their local environment.
This long-term record of environmental change is essential in developing public awareness and organizing political action.
