TURTLE TRIP Spend 2 Days Helping Research Sea Turtles

Do you Love Sea Turtles? Then join Atlantic Edge Scuba June 8-11, 2017 for two days of two-tank turtle education dives! You'll learn about sea turtle activity within the Palm Beach area, and beneath the water. For each of the two days of diving, our resident marine biologist will point out sea turtles, id them for us, record data, breeds, and observe their behavior.  

Diving throughout the gorgeous Florida reefs, we continually see turtles of all shapes and sizes. While respecting their distance we admire these incredible species, happy to see them continue to grow and thrive throughout the south Florida waters.

Throughout this educational trip, divers will be able to observe turtles in their natural habitat, and learn more about the species they encounter. Erik Fulwider, one of our Atlantic Edge Instructors, will be present, capturing imagery and helping organize the dive.
