ADA eNews: Help us save the reefs!
Dive with ADA this summer!
Join us for ADA's Coral Restoration Foundation Day on September 6th

Only 8 Slots Remaining!

The program includes classroom training at the CRF’s comfortable facility in Key Largo, where we will learn the latest techniques for fragging and prepping baby corals for outplanting, then outplanting them onto the reefs, maintaining previously-planted coral gardens, and documenting the successes of our efforts. After a lunch break, we will board a boat, specially reserved only for our ADA/CRF program, for a two-tank dive. Our first dive will be a tour of the coral nursery, and involve setting-up for our outplanting tasks. Then we will move to the reef and perform outplanting and maintenance activities on the corals.

ADA has negotiated a discounted rate for the boat trip through Florida Keys Dive Center. The cost of the program $125 per diver and includes boat fee, two tanks and weights, the Coral Reef Foundation fee and membership in the Active DIvers Association for the current calendar year. Participants can also opt to to receive a PADI Coral Restoration Specialist Certification and accompanying PADI Certification Card for an additional $31.20.
