Why “The MudSharks”?

The name MudSharks was chosen to reflect our love for diving in the Pacific Northwest. Originally, Underwater Sports owner, Gary Keffler, helped start MudSharks as a local competitive spear fishing team. The first MudSharks gained fame in contests around the world and even won the (now long gone) Sea Fair Spear Fishing Tournament of 1957.

Those early MudSharks shared wonderful experiences, made lifetime friends, and grew an ever-deeper commitment to both underwater recreation and marine stewardship. Inspired by our founding members’ skill, enthusiasm, and spirit of adventure, we proudly carry on the Mudsharks tradition.

You can always stop by Underwater Sports Seattle to see trophies, pictures, patches, and other MudSharks memorabilia on permanent display. Come see what you’re missing!
