Glad to see thing slike this going on. I remember the "Trash dives" I used to do. They had awards for the most trash, the biggest piece and the most unusual. One year the most unusual was a VW beetle-3 guys had 100 lb bags and floated it up.

I think deerfield beach, There is some nice reef about the end of the pier There is a resident Hammerhead about 6' near there it should be cool if she is around, I know there is a lot of Tapon around there also

I will bring the 2 tanks that I have, The cleaning is from 9am-12pm. If you want we could go and do one more dive after.

Every one is more then welcome to join.

SHORE DIVING & SNORKELING


Pompano Beach Fishing Pier
Deerfield Beach Fishing Pier
Divers must be certified and present their c-cards when checking in at dive sites.

Fill out the waiver form, and most importantly sign back in when you finish your dive. We may ask you to leave your c-card to be given back to you upon your return to insure your safety and to help our volunteers keep track of all divers responsibly.
Divers please bring cutting tools (no knives) such as sea snips, heavy scissors, sheers, wire cutters, utility cutters to cut the thick bundles of monofilament you will encounter. Safety is our top priority so please be careful.
Check-in for divers at Pompano Pier and Deerfield Pier 8AM -9AM Dive 9AM-11:30AM. All divers must be checked back in no later than 12 Noon so head back to shore with enough time. Fisherman will resume fishing at noon. Bring your own diving/snorkeling gear, as none will be provided. Catch bags would be helpful.
Dive flags - We need some flags but not too many. We suggest some divers take their personal flags and tie them to various pilings. Then if you want to venture off the pier later you are prepared

Too bad on the cancellation... I just left yesterday... enjoyed 10 dives from the past week... including two shore dives at Commercial Dr pier and Datura Ave... saw several beer bottles and cans, picked up two masks, two pairs of shades and a snorkel.

Great week of diving at Pompano, Lauderdale by Sea and Key Largo.
