It’s easy to miss a problem that you can’t see but thanks to the film Chasing Coral everyone can see first hand what’s happening in our oceans and it’s sad, scary & time sensitive. It’s also not too late. If you haven’t seen the film yet, what are you waiting for? It’s a global crisis that needs, Read More
I had the chance to see the film Chasing Coral at our local government center in Key Largo just moments after it was released last week. Being a diving community I wasn’t surprised to see a packed house for the world premiere. Sure, I could have streamed it at home on my couch, it’s on Netflix,, Read More

I’ll never get tired of the swim throughs, sweeping walls & gorgeous pinnacles all covered in colorful life. We live in the Florida Keys and we just don’t have diving like that here., Read More
We had a great time taking part in the Coral Restoration Foundation’s (CRF) 3rd annual Coralpalooza event last weekend! We participated as volunteer divers working in the coral nurseries and planting coral on the reef. I learned so much!
May 17th marked the 15th anniversary of the sinking of the Spiegel Grove. Everyone loves the Spiegel. It’s a great dive and home to a ton of life. The monthly Immerse Yourself talk at the History of Diving Museum was dedicated to the story of the Spiegel Grove from her time as an active, Read More
What did you all get into for Earth Day? Here in the Florida Keys we continued our fight against marine debris with two dive shops coming together to clean up the mangroves surrounding John Pennekamp State Park.
We’re officially Divemasters! The class schedule was more demanding than I expected it to be. I spent most of the last 8 days freezing cold, soaking wet and tired. You really hit a new level of saturated after 5 hours or more in a pool. I also had fun, learned a ton, met some, Read More
