Florida Reef Diving and Snorkeling Expenses Survey
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in partnership with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the County Governments of SE Florida (including Martin, Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade) are conducting a survey to understand the economic importance of Florida reef diving and snorkeling. Many people know that coral reefs are important for healthy marine ecosystems, but Florida’s coral reefs also contribute to the State’s economic health by creating jobs, sales, and other economic impacts.
If you’ve been diving or snorkeling in Florida during the last year, please take a few minutes and complete the survey. All responses to the survey are anonymous, and the information you provide could help support the sustainable management of Florida’s marine resources.
Under Sea Adventurers is one of South Florida’s oldest scuba diving clubs, in existence since 1971. Our dive program consists of local dives, trips to the Caribbean and other exotic overseas dive locations. Our monthly meetings feature informative and educational speakers.
We regularly schedule local dives with many of the various dive charter boats in Southeast Florida, from Palm Beach to the Keys. We often book the entire boat so we can enjoy the camaraderie of diving with fellow USA Dive Club members. In recent years, members have participated in trips to dive destinations including Belize, Tobago, Curacao, Dry Tortugas, Cayman Islands, Coral Sea, Thailand, Papua New Guinea, Bonaire, Palau, Dominica, Truk Lagoon, Venezuela, Fiji, and many other exciting locations.
We have an active schedule of non-diving social events including outings at many area attractions, sporting events, restaurants and parks. Annual events include our Fall Party, Family Beach Party and Independence Day Celebration.
Monthly meetings start at 7:00 PM with a half hour of socializing. The general meeting begins at 7:30 PM with current events, club announcements, status of trips, and the Lobster Pot! Then our monthly guest speaker takes center stage for an informative, educational and entertaining presentation on diving, exotic dive destination, or perhaps new equipment. Come by one of our meetings the first Thursday of every month.
