Artificial Reef Program

To celebrate the 3rd anniversary of the sinking of the Danny McCauley Memorial Reef, Pura Vida Divers will be hosting a Social Night on Friday, February 19, 2016 to raise awareness about the Palm Beach County Artificial Reef Program. This is a FREE event!

It doesn’t matter if you’re a diver, surfer or beach goer, everyone is welcome to attend. So join us for an evening of socializing, delicious food, and the history of the wrecks that make up our artificial reefs in Palm Beach County.

Jena McNeal, Director of Palm Beach County Environmental Resource Management and member of the Palm Beach County Reef Research Team Board of Directors will be presenting. Topics will include: What is an artificial reef and what benefits do they provide, why do we need/want more artificial reefs in Palm Beach County, the history of the Palm Beach County Artificial Reef Program and the many different wrecks we love to dive, what projects are in the works, and what we all can do to help them come to fruition. There will also be a question and answer session following her presentation.

Our team will be providing drinks and appetizers.  Guests are welcome to bring a small covered dish food to share, however this is not a requirement! If you are unable to bring a dish, please do not let the dish prevent you from coming.

We will also have a 50/50 cash drawing to raise money for the Palm Beach County Artificial Reef Fund. So don’t forget to bring some cash!!
