Shaking Hands with Diving Royalty

Dateline: October 1995. I was in Viva Las Vegas attending the DEMA (Diving Equipment Manufacturers Association) trade show as a Media Representative for Canada’s Diver Magazine. It was there that I was able to take advantage of a photo op and share a brief handshake with Jean-Michel Cousteau, French explorer, environmentalist, educator, film producer, and the first son of ocean legendary explorer Jacques-Yves Cousteau. A gracious and patient man if ever there was tirelessly shaking hands with numerous show patrons at the US Divers Booth.
