Teddy’s interest above and below the ocean lasted a lifetime, not only around Bermuda, but the world. Every day was a day of observation, learning and recording the environment and Bermuda was a perfect platform in the ocean for a person with a sense of adventure and exploration.
‘Teddy Tucker was a master mentor,’ says Dr. Joe MacInnis, a diving physician who studies leadership in high-risk environments. ‘An undersea encyclopedia, who willingly shared his hard-won knowledge. We embraced his intelligence and enthusiasm and made it our own.’
The ‘Teddy Tucker Triangle’ refers to the three main points of focus of Teddy’s work: Shipwrecks, Conservation and Research. It also describes the area around the island where he conducted much of his exploration.
