We take pride in not only taking people diving in the beautiful waters of the Bahamas and Florida Keys, but also in raising awareness while we do it, encouraging good diving etiquette, educating passengers on what they’re seeing underwater, and most of all why that awareness is so important. We’d like to believe that we are raising awareness with every trip, ingraining in 12 people a week the idea that the ocean is a limited resource, deserves more respect than it receives, and that even only 12 people at a time, we can make a difference.
Bearing that in mind, we are thrilled to be able to provide you with a private screening of “Ocean Frontiers: The Dawn of a New Era of Ocean Stewardship” during your stay on board Juliet. Highlighting ocean conservation success stories from Oregon, the Florida Keys, Stellwagen Bank, and the Gulf of Mexico, Ocean Frontiers takes us on a journey around the country and addresses the problems – and solutions – of ecosystem based management in a passionate, gripping film. You’ll hear how Boston’s commercial shipping lanes were moved to help protect marine mammals, about Iowa farmers making huge efforts to ensure their crop run-off doesn’t create major dead-zones in the Gulf of Mexico, and the success story that we know now as the Florida Keys Marine Sanctuary. “Ocean Frontiers?takes a balanced, bipartisan approach to both the problems we face in managing our oceans and the solutions at hand.”
