    Space is still available for dive and snorkel trips this weekend to watch the Coral Restoration Foundation transplant coral on the reef off the Upper Keys. 


    Winter relief on the Duane

    Last week we had some great conditions for diving, so we opted to spend some time on the Duane.  We did five dives in three days, with moderate current on one of the days. Being able to free fall from the dive boat to the wreck is a real treat on the Duane .

    Red hinds demonstrate protected area success

    Porgies play a role in reef studies

    About 20 years ago, I was a volunteer diver on the Scuba Diving Team for the Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center. All types of Chesapeake Bay critters filled the aquarium, which was small by today's mega-aquarium standards.
