TISIRI Offshore Jacksonville Florida Reef Clean Up

Let’s start off 2013 giving back a bit to the reef systems that give us so much pleasure when we dive.

TISIRI is coordinating a reef clean-up dive trip this Saturday 1-12-13 and this information is copied from their website at

We will be removing fishing line and trash debris from popular reef
sites. We do reef clean projects from time to time but have been
motivated to execute such efforts more frequently after recently finding
a dead sea turtle caught up in fishing line.

Divers participating will be featured in TISIRI pictures, video, and
publications relating to the event and will have improved the health of
our offshore environment. Dive conditions were great during our
underwater efforts last week, and should be even better on Saturday. We
even encountered three different giant sunfish “Mola-Mola.” Amazing

The trip will consist of two to three dives per participant. Divers
will dive in teams of two with one diver removing/cutting line with the
other helping place waste material in a mesh bag. Trash we be brought
back to the boat and discarded appropriately when back ashore. All dives
will be within recreational dive limits.

The dive trip will depart from Jacksonville Florida early Saturday
morning and the boat will return mid afternoon. The weather is going to
be nice and warm.

Space is limited but spots are still available and must be made through TISIRI (not me or Michael or ScubaDreaminn)
