Marine Conservation Lecture & Dive Series: A Return of Giants - The Goliath Grouper

Aug 9, 2014

 

JOIN THE EXPERTS:  EXPERIENCE THE UNDERWATER WONDERS OF PALM BEACH COUNTY

From shipwrecks to coral reefs to bridges, many underwater sites in Palm Beach County are becoming increasingly popular among divers and snorkelers for the remarkable abundance and diversity of unusual marine life they support.  

August 9th & 30th: A RETURN OF GIANTS: THE GOLIATH GROUPER: Every year, the region's goliath grouper get together to spawn.  Luckily for us here in Palm Beach County, this has become among their favorite destinations!  Several local shipwrecks host dozens of these sofa-sized fish in late summer and fall, and they have become a favorite among divers.  In this program, the biology and conservation of the goliath grouper will be discussed, with a focus on the importance of our local reefs for the continued recovery of this long-endangered species.  Host:  Narcosis Dive Charters, Riviera Beach

This program include a morning classroom session and an afternoon field component, and can be extended to more than one day upon request.  

One-day Program:  $95 per person includes classroom instruction, a guided two-tank dive aboard local professional dive charters, and post-dive discussion.  $45 per person for classroom session only.  Group/student rates available, as are accommodations for out-of-town guests at select hotels.   An open- water dive certification is required to participate in all diving activities.

Customize your own program!  If you have an interested group, special topic, and/or other dates in mind that aren't on the schedule, we may be able to accommodate you!
