As a veteran diver, Ken Stewart was looking for a new challenge. With an interest in marine archaeology, he founded Diving with a Purpose to help preserve the underwater legacy of the African slave trade. For giving divers a mission to explore and protect our shared national heritage, he is Scuba Diving’s August 2018 Sea Hero.
Scuba Diving Sea Heroes are people of action, devoted to protecting the planet’s oceans and marine life through conservation, technology or by simply helping others. The 2018 Sea Heroes program is sponsored by Seiko.
