Black Water Drift Dive Presentation

Looking for a different and new way to explore the ocean world? Experience our Palm Beach Black Water dives!

Drifting near the surface in 400-600ft. of water at night we see amazing creatures rarely seen — from fluorescent-colored eels, jellies, squid, bioluminescent creatures, and the larvae stages of many reef creature.  Each Black Water night dive is different and unpredictable.

If you’re not yet convinced to try out one of these amazing dives then you don’t want to miss this month’s social event where Lazaro Ruda, local diver and wildlife photographer, will be sharing his experiences and photographs. Topics will include creature diversity and identification, camera equipment selection, and a few photo tips.

Our team will provide drinks and appetizers.  Guests are welcome to bring a small covered dish of food to share, however this is not a requirement!  Please do not let the dish prevent you from attending.

We will also have a 50/50 cash drawing to raise money for the FWC Monofilament Recovery & Recycling Program.  So don’t forget to bring some cash!!

May’s guest presenter biography: Lazaro Ruda

Raised in south Florida, Laz’s love for the natural world developed at a very early age. His unwarranted fears of the ocean’s mysteries evolved into an endless fascination during his childhood summers in Key West and Singer Island. Over thirty years later, this love affair for the ocean has become a part of his daily life. Whether on an ocean adventure or reading books on its natural history, few things capture his attention with such an invigorating passion. Through his web site,, he engages viewers with the wonders of this incredible planet. He hopes his images and stories will help everyone understand our amazing ocean planet a little better and make us all better stewards.
