Florida Keys Traveler podcast

5: Belly Up to the Helium Bar

Trace mankind’s exploration of the underwater world with host Elizabeth Harryman Lasley and producer Jason Paton at the History of Diving Museum in Islamorada. Lisa Mongelia, the museum’s executive director, takes us on a journey that begins in ancient times and continues through the evolution of diving helmets and suits, scuba diving, and deep-water investigation.

Along the way, you’ll see amazing examples of human ingenuity and maybe catch a glimpse of sunken treasure. And you might be surprised at the important role the Florida Keys have played in the development of undersea technologies!
