Sharks, Turtles & Squid in Key Largo!

Key Largo Reefs Today: Marine Life a Positive Story?

While looking at some amazing photographs that Photographer Andrew Jalbert captured while diving Key Largo last year, (all pics in this article were taken by him while diving off the Sea Dweller III), I realized that we are seeing a few good signs these days for our reefs.  While certainly the coral reefs continue to face struggles in the Florida Keys as well as around the world, (much more on that in future posts), we are happy to report that the Marine life on our reefs is doing pretty darn well!  In 2016, we were happy to report that our staff and our divers saw plenty of the usual suspects that the Key Largo reefs are known for; smaller tropicals and schooling fishes…and all as healthy and abundant as it’s been for decades!    We attribute much of this to the conservationist muscle of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary!  But there’s more…

Sharks anyone?

Several years ago we started seeing something more frequently while scuba diving the Key Largo Reefs…Reef Sharks!   This trend has continued we’re happy to say, and it’s not uncommon for our scuba divers to see up to 5-6 reef sharks on  a single dive!  Not only is this good for our scuba diving, but according to most Marine Biologists, this is generally considered a good sign for the coral reef ecology. According to the “Coral Reef Alliance”…

These remarkable animals are incredibly important for overall ocean health and, in particular, for coral reefs. Sharks are often “apex” or top predators, helping to regulate species abundance and diversity while maintaining balance throughout an ecosystem. – Coral Reef Alliance

How about scuba diving with Turtles?

This is also an area we are happy to report seems to be doing well on the Key Largo dive sites, according to what we are seeing from our divers.  Divers and snorkelers have been seeing turtles with some regularity, not as frequently as the Reef Sharks are appearing, but several times weekly at this point.  Loggerheads and Hawksbills are the main species we see here.  And who doesn’t like scuba diving with Turtles?

 


Any Scuba Divers Interested in Squids?

Diving with Reef Squid off Key Largo

And finally, we wanted to add this in..the Reef Squid!  This is a guy that has always been around our Key Largo reefs, but many of us just miss them while we’re scuba diving because they’re not easy to see. Are our scuba divers seeing more of them now?  Honestly I have no idea.  But underwater photographer Andrew Jalbert got this shot of one while diving off the Sea Dweller III and we just HAD to publish it here…isn’t it one of the most amazing shots you’ve ever seen of a Reef Squid?

Key Largo Diving & Marine Life.  Good News for 2017 and Further?

We feel that most reef species have done quite well for abundance and diversity over the last couple decades, from what we can simply observe from diving Key Largo every day for a couple decades.  We know there are some good signs as well as bad signs for our reefs here in Key Largo, as well as for reefs around the world. And while it is very important to talk about the bad things, we thought it would be good to take a little break and talk about some of the good things we’re seeing and experiencing while diving Key largo reefs & wrecks.  We believe the Marine Life is one of the good stories!

Offering More – Key Largo Diving Instruction at It’s Best!

Learning Scuba Diving with Sea Dwellers…

Our goal: Produce a better Diver!

SSI Scuba Diving Instruction

Instructor Staff Training

While we have always taken great pride in our Instruction, in 2015 we made a decision, and a commitment;  In an era when people seem to have less and less time, and Scuba Certification Courses seem to get shorter and shorter, we simply decided to go the other way and offer more. We believe that Scuba Diving is something to be taken seriously, and being comfortable and safe is paramount. So we decided that we were not going to just offer the same old course in the minimum time required. We wanted to exceed the standards by simply offering more dive time in the pool and the Open Water.  Sure, this could cost us we thought; people seem busier than ever these days working harder, longer hours.  Everyone seems to have less time, especially Dive instruction in Key Largo!for the “expendable” stuff, like vacations…and Scuba Diving.  So this could cost us, couldn’t it?  Well, first let’s talk about what this means to “Offer More”…

Method: Offer More Scuba DivingLet's all enjoy Key Largo diving.

So how to go about producing a “better” scuba diver?   Well of course it all starts with the Instructor. We’ve always taken this very seriously and feel that we’ve always offered well trained & experienced Instructors who share our “Sea Dweller Philosophy”.  You won’t get an “newbie” here!

Second, instead of just offering the minimum pool and Open Water diving required for a course…we decided to simply “Offer More”;  More pool time, more diving.  We decided to double the pool time normally offered here by most in Key Largo, and also incorporate an extra day of diving on our reefs…6 dives total instead of the required 4 to complete scuba certification course.

Outcome: So Far, Pretty Excellent!Another Newly certified scuba diver!

After having a couple seasons to gauge the effectiveness this simple idea, we are proud to say that it appears that we have made a good decision!  Our criteria?  Our customers of course…and the feedback we have gotten has been overwhelmingly positive!  Almost all of our Dive Key Largo with the best Instructors!students have loved the idea of more dive time in the pool & Open Water. As it turns out… most folks WANT the most they can receive when pursuing certification in Scuba Diving!

Happy Divers!

And we really do believe that we are producing better trained scuba divers!  Another benefit, we are producing a more committed scuba diver…and so far we’ve been seeing a higher percentage of our newly certified divers back down here for a follow up dive trip!  We believe that the more time people can spend in the water for Get scuba certified in Key LArgotraining, the more comfortable they will be with scuba diving and consequently the more enthusiastic they will be about coming back down to dive!  They are, simply… happier divers when they leave our Dive Center with their “C” Card!

SSI Open Water Certification in Key Largo

newly scuba certified divers with jeremySea Dwellers Dive Center is committed to Scuba Instruction, Open Water Certification and above. We believe in the SSI “Diver Diamond” Philosophy…Knowledge, Skills, Equipment & Experience is Scuba Training in the Florida Keysthe road to being a safe, comfortable and therefore committed scuba diver. We achieve this by “Offering More” than the minimum required to you as our students.  We have been certifying scuba divers in Key Largo since 1974, and we are proud to say we have produced Offering more with your scuba diving!many good, happy scuba divers over the decades.  And now we’re making it even better for you, which is better for all of us.  Key Largo diving has never been better!

The Unique Florida Keys

One of a Kind – Sun, Fun, food and Scuba Diving the “One of a Kind” Florida Keys!

While “surfing” the web for Florida Keys info and news, I came across a very nice article from “The Daily Meal” website titled “12 Ways the Florida Keys Are Unlike Anywhere Else on Earth”.  Its a cool article, and a cool website for foodies by the way, please check it out when you can.

The unique Florida Keys...and Key Largo

Photo by Jim Matyszyk

It got me thinking about our islands down here, the Florida Keys, and how unique they really are to the North American Continent.  The Florida Keys is the only area on the North American continent that exhibits traits of a “Tropical” environment by definition, (although technically just north of the official tropical zone boundary). The rest of South Florida and parts of Texas and Mexico have sub-tropical conditions.

“America’s Caribbean” Family scuba diving in key largo

The Florida Keys have been referred to as America’s Caribbean” for a myriad of reasons, starting with the “tropical” environment listed above.  But they are also home to the only living coral barrier reef in North America.  Obviously as many know, this makes it the go-to spot for scuba diving for most Americans.  No passport required!

“Tropical Island”

When you are in the Keys, doesn’t it just feel like you are in the “tropics”?  Meaning everything that we simply think of when talking “tropics”!  Lots of suKey largo diving with the Reunion Weekendnshine, (the most sunny days in North America), palm trees, beautiful blue water surrounding you at every turn….seafood shacks, great fishing, great Key Largo scuba diving, Come visit Key Largo and the Florida keys(oh, I already mentioned that didn’t I?).  You get the picture?

“One of a Kind”

The Florida Keys are simply, “one of a kind”.  Probably not a secret to many of you, and why you keep coming down to visit us year after year!  We hope that continues, and we think it will if the last few years are any indication…Key Largo and the Florida Keys have been busier than ever!   Come on down, the sun, seafood, palm tress and great scuba diving are here waiting for you!

2016 Sea Dwellers’ Reunion Weekend

A Weekend of Scuba Diving in Key Largo with Great Friends!

What a blast we had again this year at our annual “Sea Dwellers Dive Center Reunion Weekend”!  We were a bit worried, the weather had gotten erratic on us, (after a great year overall), and we had a terrible weekend prior to the event.  But the dive Gods were on our side and the Key Largo weather cleared the day before the first of our 4 days of diving.

Once again, we had a great bunch of folks join us, most of which we’ve known for years…no, decades really!    The great states of California, Colorado, North Carolina, South Carolina, New York, Illinois, Connecticut, Florida, Wisconsin, and New Jersey were represented, (I know I’ve left someone out..sorry!).

The scuba diving was good, seas calm…and much marine life was experienced.  Many of our scuba divers know each other, and have been diving together for years also.  This weekend always brings like-minded people together to do what we all love a lot, scuba diving, in a tropical environment, Key Largo, Florida Keys!  What more can you ask for?

The Sea Dwellers’ Staff enjoys this weekend. It’s a great bunch of people we’ve known for so long that it’s like, well..a family reunion!  Good friends, good camaraderie, good scuba diving, good environment. We feel lucky to have such great people diving with us for so long!

Key Largo Roundup – A Fantastic Summer of Scuba Diving – Reef Conservation

The Florida Keys are happening…and some great news for the reefs…

We’re happy to report that the summer of 2017 has been a great one for scuba diving.  We’ve seen an up tick of business for the last 2 years now, we’re happy to report, and one of the reasons is…great scuba diving!  Our Captains cannot remember so many calm, clear days as we’ve been blessed with for these last couple years.  Good news for divers for sure.  And while we’ve all heard about the fragile reefs being endangered by rising water temps, a few big players in the Marine Conservation world have announced some big news to help counter this…(see below).

Key Largo Marine Life

Divers love reef sharks!I know I know, we’ve said this before…but heck, we’re going to say it again…the darn marine life down here in Key Largo is simply fantastic!  Caribbean Reef Sharks (on most dives now), Spotted Eagle Rays, Tarpon, squid, Goliath Groupers, just to name some of the critters we’ve been seeing on our reefs and wrecks. Add this to the calm seas and you’ve got great scuba diving.  We’re fortunate to have many of our scuba divers give us pics of some of the marine life off Key Largo they’ve been seeing.squid2

 

New Coral Restoration Project in the Florida Keys

Coral Restoration Project

Mote Lab – Nature Conservacy Coral Restoration Project

We’re happy to announce that the Mote Marine Laboratory and The Nature Conservancy are “partnering on a coral conservation initiative that will enable coral restoration at unprecedented scales throughout the Caribbean and the Florida Keys”.

You’ve heard about the Coral Restoration Foundation and the great things they are doing for Florida Keys reefs, and now some other big guys in the Marine Conservation world are joining the action.  It’s encouraging on many fronts!

“A collaborative research effort with the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary (FKNMS), the Nature Conservancy (TNC) and Mote is making great advances in developing culture methods for hard corals at Mote’s Tropical Research Laboratory field station in the Florida Keys.”

All of this good news for Key Largo, the Florida Keys, and of course all you scuba divers out there with an appreciation for our beautiful, yet endangered coral reefs.  Your crew here at Sea Dwellers appreciates everyone who has been scuba diving with us this summer, and we hope to see you down here again real soon!

Key Largo Marine Life

Scuba Diving with lots of fish in Key Largo!DSC00155 (1)

Wow, has the marine life been strong for diving in Key Largo this year!  Just an update, this summer has been amazing for marine Life here…again…we’re happy to report!  So in addition to the abundance of tropicals, schooling fishes, etc, that we always see on our reefs here…we’ve been seeing multiple Reef Sharks daily while scuba diving, a good amount of Spotted Eagle Rays, and Tarpon!  While corals have been struggling here, as well as everywhere in the world due to rising seas temperatures, it’s hopeful that our marine life seems to be doing so well!

Caribbean Reef Sharks

This isn’t a totally new phenomenom in Key Largo, as our scuba divers have been seeing increasing numbers of Caribbean Reef Sharks for several years now. But they are definitely peaking this year. At this point we can say that we’re seeing them on the majority of dives, (more than 50%).    Last week on Molasses Reef, divers reported seeing between 8 – 10 Reef Sharks on one dive alone! According to Wikipedia“Measuring up to 3 m (9.8 ft) long, the Caribbean reef shark is one of the largest apex predators in the reef ecosystem, and they are believed to play a major role in shaping Caribbean reef communities.”

Tarpon

Last week a school of about 20 large Tarpons went cruising by several of our divers on a dive on Molasses Reef! And several times over the last weeks divers have come across Tarpons, either large single ones, or in pairs. Strength, stamina, and fighting ability, make the tarpon a premier game fish in Key largo as well as the entire sate of Florida.  This is generally the time of year scuba divers see them come in on the reef, and this year their numbers have been up.  They are bright silver with large scales…and can grow to about 4–8 ft long and weigh 60–280 lbs according to Wikipedia.  They do school at times, which can be exciting to watch while scuba diving.

So come on down and go scuba diving in Key Largo, the marine life, always one of the Keys’ biggest attraction, is really doing well!  An while you’re at it if you want to dive with Sea Dwellers Dive Center that’s cool with us too!

Key Largo “Marine Life Series” – The Snapper

Snappers

To most divers who know, Key Largo diving means marine life, and lots of it!  In particular, Key Largo and the Florida Keys are known for it’s schooling fishes…and it’s a world class destination in this regard!  When people think of coming to Key Largo to Scuba dive, most regular visitors think about these two related species. Whether its looking at large schools of them on the reef, or enjoying a dinner of yellow tail snapper after a fun day of diving, Key Largo makes it’s living on Snappers!

Snapper get their name from their behavior of snapping their jaws when they are hooked. The Grunt, a member of the Snapper family, makes an unusual “grunt” sound when they grind their teeth together. All Snappers are nocturnal feeders and gather in small to large groups which drift in the shadows and under overhangs during the day.

Probably the most frequently seen schooling fish are Blue Stripped Grunts. These were shot on Snapper Ledge, one of our most famous dive sites for schooling fish.

On Molasses reef scuba divers frequently see schools of mahogany snapper mixed in with French grunts. Small mouth grunts can be identified by their smaller size as well as their distinctive yellow stripes.

SDweb272[2]The Mutton Snapper is one of the larger members of the Snapper family. The larger Snappers tend to be more solitary, and generally can be a bit skittish around scuba divers.

 

 

 

Most fishermen agree…pound for pound, the Snapper is one of the toughest fish to haul in by by hook & Line…

 

This is a small selection of the members of the Snapper family that you can expect to see when you are scuba diving Key Largo waters with Sea Dwellers Dive Center. Next time you come diving with us, why don’t you try to count the number of different types of Grunts and Snappers you can identify on each dive? It is almost impossible to do a dive off Key Largo without seeing at least two or three species, and I think you will be surprised to see what a large selection you come up with. There are about 10 different species of Snappers commonly seen while diving Key Largo waters.

Thanks to all!
Your Sea Dwellers Staff!

Key Largo “Marine Life Series” – The Sea Turtle

All divers love the Sea Turtle it seems…


“We were diving Key Largo, Molasses Reef, myself and 2 new students when we came upon a young Loggerhead Turtle. I hastened to coax my students along so we could take a look at him before he swam away.  As it turned out, he decided we were interesting enough and spent about 10 minutes swimming with us… a wonderful dance for my students and I!”
Sea Dwellers’ Instructor Rob

How many times we’ve experienced the happy face of a diver after an encounter with a Sea Turtle on a Key Largo dive! These specialScuba diving & photography encounters prove the uncertainty of a Turtle’s behavior; at times skittish, simply swimming away quickly when glancing a diver… and sometimes the opposite; content to simply swim right on up to a scuba diver and “check things out”.   The latter is one of the great joys of scuba diving Key Largo…being able to swim with and interact with one of these beautiful, interesting creatures on a coral reef!

Male sea turtles actually spend their entire lives in the ocean. Adult females do return to beaches on land to lay their eggs, and they often migrate long distances between the areas where they feed and where they nest. There are seven species of marine turtles, five of which are found in the waters of the Florida Keys. These air-breathing reptiles are well adapted to life in the marine world, with streamlined bodies and large flippers.

The Hawksbill

A close relative of the Green Turtle, the Hawksbill Turtle is named for their narrow, pointed beak-like nose. One way to tell the difference between the Green and the Hawksbill is the Hawksbill has 2 pairs of plates between the eyes, the Green only one.

hawksbill head

Hawksbill Turtle Closeup

The Hawksbill has a very distinctive pattern of overlapping scales on their shells which can be quite beautiful. Unfortunately, these colored and patterned shells make them highly-valuable and commonly sold as “tortoiseshell” in markets, according to the WWF.

Hawksbills are found mostly throughout the world’s tropical oceans, commonly on coral reefs. They feed mainly on sponges, using their pointed beaks to extract them from corals crevices on reefs. They also eat sea anemones and jellyfish.  This is probably the most common turtle for divers diving Key largo waters.

The Loggerhead

The most abundant of all the marine turtle species in U.S. waters, the Loggerhead is also one of the easiest to identify due to…yes, because of it’s huge head.  Often seen “sleeping” while nestled among the coral, they are also known to be one of the most comfortable when interacting with scuba divers.

But persistent population declines due to pollution, shrimp trawling, and development in their nesting areas, among other factors, have kept this wide-ranging sea creature on the threatened species list since 1978.

The Green Sea Turtle

The Florida Keys were known for it’s large population of Green Turtles decades ago before they were hunted by humans to near extinction worldwide.  A very close relative of the Hawksbill, Greens are considered very good to eat.  I hate to admit it, but I remember as a little boy eating turtle sandwiches with my parents at Manny & Isa’s Restaurant in Islamorada, our favorite spot back then. Of course at the time we had no idea that they were being fished into near-extinction. But I know now, and I wouldn’t eat sea turtle anywhere!

Old Guys

Sea turtles are the living representatives of a group of reptiles that has existed on Earth and travelled our seas for the last 100 million years. They are a fundamental link in marine ecosystems and help maintain the health of coral reefs and sea grass beds. – WWF


The LeatherBack

I remember very well running the Sea Dweller III out to the reef one day many years ago, and coming upon a huge, black object on thelb surface of the water.  Coming up beside it, I realized that it was moving…and it was like nothing I had ever seen before! With huge dark ridges and about 5 – 6 feet long, I realized that it was a Leatherback Turtle. A truly amazing site!

While rare, they are found in Florida Keys waters, (I’ve never had a diver on the boat say they saw one underwater on a dive). The Leatherback is the largest of the turtles and the largest reptile living today. They can grow to be over 6 feet and can weigh upwards of  2,000 pounds. They are the only turtle that lacks a hard, bony shell.

5 Things You Can Do To Save Sea Turtles

We hope to continue to Dive Key Largo waters with Sea Turtles, as they are one of the reasons we dive in the first place! While human activity has helped to endangered them, we can also act to save them! With awareness and an appreciation of the fragility of these magnificent creatures, we can all contribute to their preservation!  Now let’s go scuba diving and find some more turtles…

Thanks to all!

10 Things Every Scuba Diver Needs to Know!

10 THINGS A DIVER SHOULD KNOW:

Here at Sea Dwellers Dive Center of Key Largo, we know how we feel about scuba diving!  You could say we kind of like it…a lot actually, and we’re going to assume you more or less feel the same way.  So we are all scuba divers, we love the underwater world, we love the marine life, corals, beautiful blue water…all the things that go with our sport. There are different skill levels, depending on how much diving we’ve done, what training we’ve received, etc. But there are some “universal truths” for scuba diving that we all can appreciate and hopefully follow. These were supplied to us from Dive.in, a great site I hope you check it out!

Here in Key Largo, Florida Keys, the diving is known to be some of the best in North America, for various reasons like abundant marine life, temperate conditions, island life, etc.  Certainly the points listed below can help maximize your Key Largo scuba diving experience while at the same time helping to preserve it for future generations!

Good things for scuba diving!

  1. Don’t touch: Even if it feels tempting to touch the turtle’s back or the corals. Don’t. You have no idea how big damage you can cause
  1. Buoyancy skills: This is one of the most important skills a diver can master. Breathe in to go up, out to go down. Only use the BCD to compensate for depth changes.
    If you want to master your buoyancy all you have to do is practice and practice on very dive.
  1. Watch your fins: If you don’t have control of your fins, you have no idea what they are breaking or who you are kicking in the face. If you hit something: Stop, look and if necessary take a stroke with the hands.
    It’s all about your finning techniques and knowing where you are in the water. Scuba diving is good exercise!
  1. Watch your air: Stating the obvious. Still remember to monitor your air, as often as you can.
    Managing your air is never a waste of time, in the long run you’ll get more dive time.
  1. Never exceed your limits: Even if there the best reason to goo that deep or do that dive. Don’t ever exceed what you feel you can dive, or what you are trained to dive.
    The only thing that can really result form this is DCI. This is the extreme, I know, but is it really worth risking, just to get a bit deeper. And if it’s that cool down there, why not get the proper training for that depth?
  1. Don’t follow peer pressure: This goes with point 5, don’t dive if you are not confident it’s the right dive plan for YOU. Don’t let anyone else say what is right for you. Always hold the right to call a dive.
  1. Keep blowing bubbles: It’s the most important rule in scuba diving, so by now you should already know it. There are plenty of other ways to extend your dive time, so don’t waste time holding your breath. It doesn’t give you more dive time and it can be very dangerous.
  1. Dive gear: take care of your dive gear, and your gear will take care of you. Don’t slack on the dive equipment maintains. If it has been a while since your last equipment checkup, now’s the time!
  1. Listen to the briefing: There’s nothing worse than a diver who didn’t pay attention to the dive guides briefing, and ends up getting lost or spoiling the dive, because he didn’t know what to do. So just pay attention.
  1. Don’t touch: Yes we covered this already, but I don’t mind repeating. Don’t touching anything underwater. Take only pictures leave only bubbles.
    It’s really that important that I had to mention it twice. If all divers keep touching just one thing a dive, we’ll end up having nothing left.

Thanks again to Dive.in for this cool and useful article!

Another Great Reunion Dive Weekend!

Lot’s of scuba diving, camaraderie and fun for all in Key Largo with Sea Dwellers Dive Center 

We just completed another “Reunion Weekend”… this our 9th… and we’re glad to say we think it was a success!  This weekend has been a staff Scuba Diving with friends!favorite, originally intended for our long standing scuba divers, many which have been diving with Sea Dwellers for decades!  And by the way, we’re honored to be a dive destination for these wonderful divers who are customers…but most importantly, our friends! How can you dive with someone for years, decades, longer…and not be close?

The weather cooperated greatly, calm seas, blue water…fabulous!  REEF, the  Reef Environmental Education Foundation, was our special guests this year, and everyone was able to participate in a Fish Count and Fish ID activity while diving some of the reefs.

On Saturday, we went to the Elbow Reef and City of Washington Wreck, 2 dive sites we do not visit very often due to it being farther abroad from our normal scuba diving destinations. Everyone seemed to enjoy the sites, as many had not been there before and the conditions were wonderful! reunion10We had a good Beach Party Saturday night at the Dive Center, food, beverages, and of course the costume Party. Fun was had by all I believe!

10th Annual

Thanks to everyone who participated, and to those who couldn’t make it this year, (you know who youreunion7 are)…we hope to see you next year for our 10th Annual…sure to be an extra special event…(we promise!).  Sea Dwellers Dive Center of Key LargoStaffreunion5
