Dive Against Debris in Key Largo - 7/8/17

Join South Beach Divers and Debris Free Oceans for a discounted two-tank dive in the beautiful Key Largo, while cleaning up our reefs and helping to keep our oceans healthy and pristine! Afterwards, we will convene at Sharkey's Pub & Galley Restaurant for a community event featuring cheap beer, a raffle and silent auction. All proceeds will be going to the nonprofits Debris Free Oceans and the Project AWARE Foundation. We will also submit debris data to Project Aware and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, contributing to the advancement of marine debris research. 

All you need is your open-water diver certification! All cleanup materials will be provided. As incentive to help pick up the reef, this trip will be $20 cheaper than our regular Key Largo dive trips!

We will meet at the shop at 9:00 a.m. for a safe-handling workshop with snacks and coffee, featuring a presentation about how to report reef health by a representative from SEAFAN (the Southeast Florida Action Network). At 10 o'clock, we will fill out paperwork and get gear together, and then head out for Key Largo! We will stop in Florida City for lunch on our way down; either pack a lunch or bring money for Subway, Pollo Tropical, Dunkin Donuts or McDonalds.

We will get to the boat around 1 p.m. and get back to shore around 5 after our two dives. At that time, you can either stay for the community event or choose to go back to Miami with the divers from other trips. If you leave immediately after the dive you will get back to Miami around 7, and if you stay for the community event you will get back to Miami around 9 or 10- depends on how much fun were having!

Please indicate in the comments of your reservation if you would like to drive yourself, head back immediately after the dive or head back after Sharkey's. 

This trip is now posted online on our trip calendar here: http://www.southbeachdivers.com/trips_calendar.asp?jump&subNext.x=55&subNext.y=13&CURDATE=01%2F06%2F2017 . Book online and save 5%, or call us at (305) 531-6110 to make your reservation.

Keg & Klean on South Beach - Friday, 7/7/17 @ 5:30-8:30PM

The trifecta of Miami cleanup organizations is teaming up with the two Miami Beach surf shops to unite under the causes of clean oceans and free beer! As a part of South Beach Dive and Surf Center's 2017 Shark Week, Debris Free Oceans, Surfrider Foundation Miami Chapter and VolunteerCleanup.Org will be hosting a collaborative Keg & Klean beach cleanup with F1RST SHOP. BOTE will be providing demo paddleboards so that we can take this cleanup into the ocean as well!

The cleanup will take place at the pier and beach at 1st street in South Beach, from 5:30-8:30 p.m. on July 7th, so we can pick up after our Fourth of July partiers.

If you are new to a Keg & Klean, the concept is simple: come join us for a sunset beach cleanup, bring a reusable cup and get free beer! Wynwood Brewing Company will be providing us with kegs for the evening, which will be kept at F1RST Street. Debris Free Oceans and Volunteer Cleanup will provide all cleaning supplies.

Meet us at F1RST SHOP (40 South Pointe Dr, Miami Beach, FL 33139) to fill up your cup, and then head to the beach and find the Surfrider table to grab supplies. Then take to the beach with your bucket and your brew and enjoy the sunset while picking up our beautiful coastline!

We look forward to enjoying beers, the sunset, and a cleaner beach with you on July 7th!

P.s. We will be selling Shark Week raffle tickets for $5 a piece or 5 tickets for $20! Enter for your chance to win one of four kite surfing lessons with SkyBanditz, a pair of Waterlust leggings, a DFO Beercan Boards skateboard, a conservation package from Planet Love Life, Bureo sunglasses, Liberty Bottleworks water bottles, and more!

Keg n' Klean

The gist is simple: BYO reusable cup for some free Wynwood Brewing Company beer and spend a couple hours cleaning up the beach at sunset 💙

We'll meet at 4PM at Hobie Beach (aka Dog Beach - yes, feel free to bring your dogs!) on Virginia Key. After you go over the first bridge onto Virginia Key (William M. Powell Bridge), take the FIRST right hand turn (across from the Rusty Pelican) If you pass Whiskey Joe's, then you missed it!! We will set up at the end of the lot across from Whiskey Joes.

Special vegan BBQ treats for the first 20 people who show up by Ayssa Marie, but feel free to bring your own veggie burgers to pop on the grill! (Vegan only please!)

If you've been craving one of our tumblers, we will have both small and large tumblers available for a $10 (small) or $15 (large) donation.

We will bring water, cleanup gear, and of course beer, but you are responsible for sunscreen and a reusable cup.

We ID!

Thank you to Wynwood Brewing Company!
