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.
