Bernard Eaton


In 1962, Eaton was invited by Peter Small, co-founder of the British Sub-Aqua Club (BSAC) and the principal organizer of the Congress, to help publicize the Second World Congress of Underwater Activities in London.   Shortly afterwards, Small invited Eaton to become his partner in a venture to turn the BSAC’s magazine, Triton, into a meaningful diving publication for open market sale.  In 1963, Eaton took over full control of Triton, after Peter Small’s untimely death in December of 1962.

To promote the sport of diving Eaton turned Triton into Diver, the most successful diving magazine in Great Britain and has organized 10 international underwater conferences and film festivals.   He wrote the blueprint for Oceans 2000, the Third World Congress of Underwater Activities, and organized no fewer than 21 dive exhibitions/shows in England and Scotland.

Among Eaton’s major achievements has been founding Britain’s Marine Conservation Society, which promotes the protection of the marine environment throughout the world, and has Prince Charles as its President. He was the Society’s Chairman for the first seven years and is now a Vice President.
