Mission: Iconic ReefsThis is a 2-tank morning trip where you will have the unique opportunity to experience a tour of the Coral Restoration Foundation’s Tavernier nursery. This nursery is over an acre in size, meaning that you will be able to swim through a forest of baby corals growing on CRF’s coral trees. There are over 500 coral trees with 11 different species of coral growing.
We will then visit Pickles Reef, where you will be able to see the coral that CRF has outplanted onto the reef. This is an opportunity to see the hard work that goes into growing and planting these corals in an effort to restore the reefs and repopulate the coral that was once abundant.
This trip is part of a new initiative formed in conjunction with numerous governmental and local agencies to restore 7 iconic reefs throughout the Florida Keys reef tract.
