Miami-Dade Reef Guard is a local non-profit charged with protecting the reef by placing mooring buoys for use by the boating public in hopes of reducing anchor damage.
We have an “Adopt-A-Buoy” program and are celebrating our two newest sponsors 1-800 Yacht Charters / 1-800 Bare Boat & The Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation
A happy hour with drinks provided by Wicked Dolphin Rum / Mako Vodka and food by Salt Waterfront Restaurant will precede a talk by Reef Guard President, Professor Michael J. Beach, on the wreck of the Half Moon, formerly known as the Germania. This ship has a very interesting and storied past. The site is made more unique by the fact that our sponsor, 1-800 Yacht Charters, has a replica of the vessel within its fleet. Hence the title of the talk “History Comes To Life”!
Suggested donation is $10 and, with it, you are entitled to free food and drinks and entered into a raffle for great door prizes!
The auditorium, graciously donated by the University of Miami, holds 300 people. Lets pack the place!
