Dive with the Coral Restoration Foundation and Keys Diver!
The CRF Dive Program encourages divers of all ages and skill levels to get involved and take an active role in coral restoration. CRF blends classroom instruction and field diving to provide a hands-on learning experience.
This special One-Day Program is divided into a morning session and an afternoon session. It is an exclusive event for For Reef Crawl VIP Card Holders and guests. A CRF staff member gives a lecture in the morning, outlining CRF’s mission, history, and objectives. Also included in the talk is an introduction to coral anatomy and conditions necessary for a healthy reef, as well as stressors causing current coral decline. The lecture concludes with a brief overview of the need for restoration efforts and the CRF procedure.
Break for lunch at The Pilot House Marina & Restaurant and enjoy the freshest Catch complete with aheaping serving of Reef Crawl VIP Discounts.
Continue to the Divesites and implement what you learned. The afternoon session consists of two dives: one on the nursery and one at an outplanting site. On the first dive, using the techniques illustrated in the morning lecture, divers will explore the nursery and prepare corals to be transported to a restoration site. The second dive takes place at the restoration site, where the divers plant the corals they previously prepared.
