Scuba Diving (and Surfing) is Not a Crime!

"Today, the Maine Supreme Judicial Court ruled in favor of beach access rights with the McGarvey v. Whittredge decision regarding the public access of recreationalists like scuba divers through the intertidal zone in Maine. Specifically, the case was set in Eastport, Maine, but the ruling set statewide precedent. Surfrider Foundation's Maine Chapter became involved as an amicus curiae or "friend of the court" party to the lawsuit to advocate for stronger public beach access rights at the highest court in the state of Maine." - excerpt from Surfrider Foundation's Coastal Blog.
