The handling of this critically endangered hawksbill sea turtle was done under a Florida state permit provided to The Florida Hawksbill Project run by Larry Wood (pictured above).***WARNING*** Under NO circumstances should you ever harass, ride, or otherwise disturb a sea turtle. Severe penalties including jail time will be imposed.

Join Pura Vida Divers and The Florida Hawksbill Project’s Larry Wood on May 18th for a two tank afternoon dive trip aboard Sirena.

As divers, we get to observe sea turtles in their natural environment and with frequent and regular sightings, we often become familiar with local trends. This lead recreational scuba diver, Larry Wood, a conservation biologist at the Palm Beach Zoo, to initiated the state’s first and only study to focus on the endangered Hawkbill sea turtles.

The Florida Hawksbill Project’s study of our endangered Hawksbill sea turtles, encourages and facilitates marine research as well as the conservation of Florida’s coral reef habitats.

On May 18th, our goal is to conduct observational turtle dives, with the aid of Larry Wood, to view Hawksbill sea turtles in their natural environment.

Our two tank trip aboard Sirena will include the boat pass, two air tanks, a donation to The Florida Hawksbill Project, and a Pura Vida/ Palm Beach Zoo “Reef Raff Hawksbill” t-shirt.
