DIVE REPORT: ‘VERY’ STRONG WINDS COMING

This Week’s Dive Report During the week, we had a light chop with about 60 feet of visibility. It was beautiful out on the water. Conditions remained great all week until the wind kicked in on Saturday and Sunday. As you know, in the Keys, we live and die by the wind, so this made things a little rougher after that.  We had a lot of classes going on this week and were fortunate enough to certify five local EMT’s from Key Largo — thanks for your service! On their training dives, we encountered a large goliath grouper, which is always a fun treat. These curious giants have been described...

DIVE REPORT: NICE CONDITIONS AND NURSE SHARKS

This Week’s Dive Report Last week, conditions were beautiful. It was the kind of diving that the Florida Keys are famous for ? with calm seas, light winds and great visibility. The water was, of course, that amazing turquoise blue that we all love to see. With the warm weather, water temperatures are also getting comfortable. We took advantage of the amazing conditions by taking the Ocean Studies Charter School kids out to Spanky’s Reef in Islamorada to encounter the local nurse shark population there.  Nurse sharks are referred to as the “couch potatoes” of the sharks and are harmless...

DIVE REPORT: A STUNNING SATURDAY REMEMBERING A FRIEND AND RAISING MONEY FOR THE KIDS

Conditions this week were decent, but Saturday was exceptional ? one of those days on the water that you don’t forget. It coincided with opening day for the grouper and hogfish seasons in the Florida Keys, which we now celebrate in honor of our late friend Capt. Jeff Leonia.  For the 2nd annual Jeff Leonia Reel & Steel Classic, we hit the Eagle and Conch wall. While it was a fishing tournament to see who could catch the biggest fish, the real mission of the day was to raise money for the Florida Keys Sea Camp for Kids. This amazing organization will help get the next generation of anglers...

DIVE REPORT: CONSERVATION COUNTS ON EARTH DAY AND EVERY DAY

Welcome to the fabulous Florida Keys. Our waters are famous for a few reasons, and this week we saw why.  This Week’s Dive Report Overall, conditions were nice this past week, with good visibility. We had Kevin Millwood, retired MLB pitcher for the Atlanta Braves, and his family out with us.  On Molasses Reef, we dove the “winch hole” there and there were so many turtles all around! Sea turtles are some of the most amazing creatures to dive with. Sometimes, we just want to sit for hours and hang out with them.  The 8th Annual REEF Lionfish Derby targeted invasive lionfish, asking divers to help...

DIVE REPORT: WINDY EARTH DAY WEEKEND?

This Week’s Dive Report Conditions improved this week, and the seas were kind to us divers. Visibility was stunning ? close to 80 feet! If that doesn’t make for happy divers, I don’t know what would.  On one of our regular trips to the wreck of the Eagle, we were lucky enough to spot two bull sharks swimming around the perimeter of the wreck. Spotting sharks is always exciting, but bull sharks are especially amazing creatures to swim with. Having sharks in our oceans is healthy and a sign that the ecosystem is doing well. Next Week’s Dive Report There are some thunderstorms rolling through towards...

John El Koury, Scott Black and Marvin Chanes came aboard to enjoy what Mother Nature had in store for us. When conditions...

Everyone was eager and on board to dive with a purpose. Their targets were Bishop, Crater and Mosh Pit reefs in Islamorada. Despite choppy conditions...
