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!
Here’s just a few pictures from the weekend that we’ve gotten so far…it was a great weekend of Key largo scuba diving! We’ll keep adding some more as we get them and thanks to all divers (and non-divers) who attended!
We had a wonderful time again this year for our “7th Annual Sea Dweller Reunion Weekend”. We had participants from New York, California, Florida, North Carolina, Arizona, New Jersey, Wisconsin, Illinois and South Carolina. All scuba diving key Largo with Sea Dwellers…not for the first time. As a matter of fact, some of this year’s participants have been diving with us for decades.
The weather certainly cooperated. It was warm and sunny topside, mild seas and lots of critters as usual. We had for our event “special guest” the Coral Restoration Foundation. Everyone enjoyed the CRF immensly, and it’s nice raising funds for this worthy cause. The CRF gives hope to the future of Coral Reefs in these difficult environmental times we live in today, and we are glad to give support to them and hope anyone who enjoys scuba diving or simply appreciates the underwater world would consider helping them also. We met at the CRF office building for a presentation on the CRF, and followed this up with 2 dives on the Restoration nursery and then on a Restoration site. Everyone seemed to really enjoy this enlightening and educational experience. The event also includes…more scuba diving of course, sunset champagne cruise, costume party and prizes and some other things which vary slightly from weekend to weekend.
The Sea Dweller Reunion has become a great event for us here at Sea Dwellers Dive Center, as the participants are always divers who we know very well and are basically our friends as well as our customers. Being as the event is usually right after the end of our busy season, the staff here looks forward to this weekend spent with friends and fellow workers enjoying the party and events associated with the weekend. Basically, we enjoy Reunion Weekend ourselves…it’s not just another work weekend but lots of fun!
So we can say that the “7th Annual Sea Dwellers Reunion Weekend” was a success. We owe it all to the great folks who came from far away to dive Key Largo with us here at Sea Dwellers Dive Center. Thanks to our greatest supporters and friends, we couldn’t do any of this without you!
