Upcoming Dive Trips and Other Events

2022

February

West Palm Bridge Dives -- Feb 19-20

It’s been a LONG winter season. We are ready for some ocean dives! So, join us in West Palm, February 19-20!  A boat payment ($110, $115 if paying with a credit card) will reserve your spot.

Saturday morning, meet at the Blue Heron Bridge, Phil Foster Park, Riviera Beach, by 7am to catch the 9am high tide for a single dive. Parking can be competitive so early arrival is important.

Saturday afternoon, 2-tank boat dives. $110 fee includes air. Be at the boat by 12:45pm with your gear and certification card. Kathy will send you the waiver link prior to the trip. Please use that link to COMPLETE YOUR ONLINE WAIVER PRIOR TO LEAVING HOME. 

Sunday morning bridge dive. Meet at 7am with a full tank to find a parking space and catch the 9:45am tide.

Transportation and lodging are on your own. We’ll be diving in the Riviera Beach area but some find lodging as far north as Jupiter.

Special add-on (must be AOW certified): 
Thursday night “Black water dive." Hover effortlessly in 20-30 ft. of deep water to experience the nightly “vertical migration” of jellies and bioluminescent creatures. Check it out at https://www.puravidadivers.com/2022-blue-heron-bridge-night-dives . Call Pura Vida on your own to reserve. Contact Kathy if you have questions about this option.

  • YOU MUST BRING YOUR OWN TANK AND WEIGHTS TO THE BRIDGE on Saturday and Sunday mornings.  Scuba Station does not rent or loan out weights for trips.
  • 2 tanks are included in the boat fee Saturday afternoon.

March

Turks and Caicos -- Mar 5-12

We're going to the Turks and Caicos! 

Our Cayman Brac trip has rolled over 4 times now as the Cayman government tries to deal with Covid.  After their latest announcement that they have opted to stay closed until February, we have changed our destination and dates.

Our new destination is the East Bay Resort on South Caicos Island (not the main island). We will retain the same package that we booked for Brac as the resort is owned by the same company. 

Currently we have 21 people and 12 rooms booked, with 5 remaining rooms.   Unfortunately, our payment and room quantity verification due dates remain the same so if you'd like to join us for this fantastic trip 50% of the trip fee is due immediately in order to reserve a room, with the full balance due by November 19. We'll fill you in on airline information once you have booked the trip with us (feel free to go online and browse though.  It's reasonable!). 

Don't delay if you'd like to grab one of the remaining rooms.  There are only a few left .  Email scubastationfl@gmail.com or call/text Kathy if you wish to discuss more details.

Please let us know if there are any other trips you'd like to see scheduled. For any trip, we need your committment. We cannot reserve a group trip without committments.  So get committed early!

Most items listed above are planned and provided by either the City of Fernandina Beach Department of Parks and Recreation (FB) or the Fernandina Beach Scuba Club (SC).   Information is provided here as a public service of Scuba Station.
