Fin Forward is seeking a graphic designer to help with a logo and/or website theme for our ´´2012 Mayan Shark Odyssey,´´ which is a series of dives and diversions for cancer survivors, throughout Mexico. This journey will involve swims with whale sharks, manta rays, and great white sharks in addition to visits to Mayan ruins and caverns. We need a Mayan/tribal-style logo/glyph to represent the campaign. While we cannot offer any money at the moment, your logo would be featured on underwater banners, in sharky settings, and throughout various promotional items (Mayan calendars, t-shirts, brochures, etc.). It would also be featured on our ´´Celebrity Cage Dive ´´ with great whites and in a documentary film as well. Please contact info@finforward.com, if interested in more information. Thanks!

I recently won $2,500 in Sigma lenses to use for our shark dives/charitable project and secured partnerships with Halos of Hope (shark hats) and Eye-Fi (wireless memory cards). Fin Forward is looking for new partners and some of our needs include underwater housing, masks/snorkels, regulators/BC vests, wetsuits, and accessories. Please contact me if interested in volunteering for or partnering with our great cause - shark dives for cancer survivors! Thanks and safe diving!

Brandon Bethea: I run a shark dive project for cancer survivors and encountered a 7’ foot mako shark. We were mainly looking for blue sharks that day, but it became quite apparent why the blues suddenly left! It was my first mako dive so it was very exhilirating!

Brandon Bethea: After losing my mom to cancer, I decided to dive with great whites. This single dive changed me so much that I launched a charitable project to take cancer survivors on shark dives and marine encounters!
