October is Reef Conservation Month at Divetech Grand Cayman

By Sam Helmy From Deeper Blue
In partnership with Vivo restaurant and Eco Divers, Divetech is hosting a Coral Conservation workshop on Sunday 28th October 2018.

All the funds generated by the event will go to the Eco Divers Coral Reef Foundation. The event will feature the following events:

  • Workshop to learn about the coral nursery at Lighthouse Point
  • Issues facing the island’s reefs

The event will be presented by Eco Divers’ Aaron Hunt, whose work has included growing over 1,000 pieces of coral. After the presentations, participants will be taken on a dive to Lighthouse Point to see the nursery and explore the results of all the good work.

The event will wrap up in the evening with a special three-course dinner held at Vivo restaurant and will feature some of the restaurant’s famed lionfish dishes.

According to the Owner of Divetech Joanna Mikutowicz:

“This month I wanted to raise awareness about some of the issues that are close to divers’ hearts. I want Divetech to be educating and leading the conservation efforts in the Cayman Islands. We cannot ignore the issues we see before us every day and I want to give the local community the opportunity to get involved and try lionfish culling for themselves! We are offering 20% off our Department of the Environment approved Lionfish Culling course throughout October 2018. We are also offering 20% off our Freediving courses as a way to re-engage divers with the natural beauty of our ocean and the issues affecting it.”

Tickets for the event cost US$75/~€64 /~£57 and includes the three-course dinner, the workshop, and the dive to Lighthouse Point.
