TIRSI Offshore Jax Cleanup for the New Year

  • Offshore Dive Charters

    9954 Heckscher Drive, Jacksonville, FL (map)

    30.400621 -81.433517

  • Let's start off 2013 giving back a bit to the reef systems that give us so much pleasure when we dive.

    TISIRI is  coordinating a reef clean-up dive trip this Saturday[masked] and this information is copied from their website at

    We will be removing fishing line and trash debris from popular reef sites. We do reef clean projects from time to time but have been motivated to execute such efforts more frequently after recently finding a dead sea turtle caught up in fishing line.

    Divers participating will be featured in TISIRI pictures, video, and publications relating to the event and will have improved the health of our offshore environment. Dive conditions were great during our underwater efforts last week, and should be even better on Saturday. We even encountered three different giant sunfish “Mola-Mola.” Amazing animals.

    The trip will consist of two to three dives per participant. Divers will dive in teams of two with one diver removing/cutting line with the other helping place waste material in a mesh bag. Trash we be brought back to the boat and discarded appropriately when back ashore. All dives will be within recreational dive limits.

    The dive trip will depart from Jacksonville Florida early Saturday morning and the boat will return mid afternoon. The weather is going to be nice and warm.


    Space is limited but spots are still available and must be made through TISIRI (not me or Michael or ScubaDreaminn)


    Save your spot by providing your TISIRI contribution here!

    Your contribution covers your trip offshore transportation expenses. Participants are responsible for their own gear and tanks. More details will be provided after receipt of your contribution.
