South Florida has some of the most beautiful and unique marine life, and we boast the third largest coral reef formation in the world. We will meet at a park that hosts an amazing diving trail and head out to the beach for a safety brief and to go over snorkeling techniques before going into the water where we will experience all of the marine life Florida has to offer. We will do an equipment check to test out our equipment in the water, as well as go over open water swimming techniques, before starting an amazing tour, just in case anyone feels nervous or not confident in their swimming abilities. After our water class, we head towards our first reef formation which will begin our tour where we will swim in water depths between 15 and 30 feet, filled with tropical fish. If you bring a waterproof camera you will be able to take pictures of schools of local grunt fish, jack-eye fish, French Angel Fish, sheepshead fish, and potentially an eagle ray or a manatee! Please note: Snorkeling gear is NOT included in the price and is $35 to rent $120 to buy. We can accommodate all levels of swimming, but it is up to you to be able to swim to fully enjoy this trip. There will be other divers who will be in the same area. This dive spot is currently rated the number one shore dive in the US and draws divers from all over the world. As such, please arrive early to obtain a parking spot!

I have been hosting snorkeling trips with Airbnb since 2018, teaching basic snorkeling, diving, and open water swimming skills. I love discovering the world and nature, and sharing this journey with others. My passion is to find the most rugged, exciting, and unknown to most people places on earth, and to show others how to enjoy and perhaps even care about these places. I served in the US Marine Corps and in the US Army as an infantry team leader, as well as a missionary in disaster-ravaged parts of the world, such as Nepal (2015), north Yunnan (2014), and north-central Sichuan (2017). I have taught people of all ages about traversing and surviving in rugged areas with simple supplies. Nature is where I make my home.
The dive site is at an artificial reef where many SCUBA divers come to get open water experience. I will be taking you on a personalized tour of the reef that no one else gets to see. The reef offers fantastic opportunity to see various marine life from manatees, turtles to various kinds of exotic tropical fish

Guests will need snorkeling gear, you can bring your own or rent. Guests will need to bring swimwear. I favor surf shirts for sun mitigation over creams. Wetsuits needed for winter only ($20 to rent). This is an entry level course, you do not need to be an experienced diver to enjoy the tour.
