Acclaimed filmmakers and National Geographic Explorers, Jill Heinerth and Robert McClellan are undertaking a trailblazing adventure in support of the environment.
Their project, We Are Water, offers a compelling look at the world’s water systems and the importance of their preservation through a high-quality documentary.
This year, the couple will showcase their presentations with a 7,500-km bicycle trek from British Columbia to Newfoundland throughout the summer. Carrying only the bare essentials and their presentation materials, they will stop at numerous locations to share their important compelling message.
The project’s initial stop will be at the Crown Isle Resort in Courtenay on May 10.
The kickoff extravaganza begins at 6:30 p.m. with appetizers and a cash bar available; the presentation begins promptly at 7. A cache of door prizes, both diving and non-diving, will be given throughout the evening.
Following the presentation, Heinerth will meet and greet with guests and sell We Are Water books and DVDs. In celebration of Canadian native, Heinerth and McClellan’s project, local dive centre Pacific Pro Dive will continue the evening during the weekend with a host of boat and shore dives throughout the weekend.

We Are Water, an award-winning documentary couples an informative narrative with eye-catching underwater adventures and highlights the right measures necessary to help curtail a perilous scenario.
Due to many factors, the accessibility of clean, potable water is rapidly diminishing; experts believe water control may be a leading issue between nations in decades to come. Combined with an expanding population, civilization may face a crisis it has yet to ever experience throughout its long history.
We Are Water shares an expedition where participants study the crucial responsibilities of humanity in the 21st century and its ancestral interconnectivity to Earth’s waterways. Through a litany of scientific data and personal accounts, the project inspires environmental stewardship on individual and collective levels.
A synopsis of Heinerth’s amazing journey from a young Canadian graphic artist to the world’s most prominent woman in technical diving accompanies the film.
