    Professors continue record-breaking underwater living attempt

    I fin under the Jules Undersea Lodge located 25 feet deep in a quiet lagoon in Kay Largo and drift up into the opening known as a “moon pool.”  Movie goers might remember seeing these in adventure films or James Bond movies.


    Astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Mike Gernhart visit sea lab project

    Astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Mike Gernhart dived into the Jules Undersea Lodge Lagoon in Key Largo lagoon Thursday to take part in a broadcast entitled “The Sea and Space Connection” discussing how the undersea environment is used to train astronauts. They joined Roane State associate...


    Weather bringing variety

    As we continue to transition into fall fishing patterns, you may have more options than time. It's a good problem to have.


    They’re baaaack

    It has been a great dive. The water is calm; the underwater visibility is good; we have seen several nurse sharks, a southern stingray, morey eel and clouds of reef fish. Everyone is happy.

    Attempt at record-breaking underwater stay begins

    Roane State associate professor of biology Bruce Cantrell and adjunct instructor Jessica Fain dived into the Jules’ Undersea Lodge Lagoon in Key Largo Friday to live and work underwater for a record-breaking 73 days. The next time they will see the sun will be Dec. 15. The current...


    Dolphin slowing down but if you find them, they're whoppers

    As we transition into fall fishing patterns, we have multiple venues offering great catching, including offshore, where dolphin fishing is like looking for a needle in a haystack. But it's well worth the search. There are lots of fish in the eight- to 10-pound range and even 25-pounders are common...


    Beau knows swordfish

    The first time I met him he was in full uniform including his government issue life preserver. He had just docked his state-of-the-art patrol boat at one of the Stock Island marinas, walked into the ship store and announced that he was looking for a sailing vessel involved in something shady that...


    Southern stingray’s conservation status is not known

    Cruising over the sandy bottom next to the ledge of the reef the pressure is on. Before we entered the water the dive-boat captain announced that we probably would see southern stingrays, green moray eels, nurse sharks, a variety of tropical fish and maybe a turtle.


    Bleaching may still be happening

    Breezy weather helped cool Florida Keys waters in recent weeks, but reef corals may still be suffering from "moderate" bleaching, monitoring reports say.
