Help protect our reefs! Join us on Saturday, October 18th for the Annual eBoat Listings Lionfish Tournament in Boynton Beach, FL.   This is a REEF sanctioned lionfish derby so all profits will be donated to REEF.

 

Scuba divers and free divers will join forces to eradicate as many of this destructive, invasive critter as possible.  Boats can exit the Boynton Inlet at 8am and must turn in their catches by 3pm at the Harvey E.Oyer Park boat ramps.  Registration is $100 per boat and may have up to 4 divers per boat. The boat registration includes 4 derby entries, 4 t-shirts,  4 tickets to the after-party, and 4 goody bags.  Additional tickets to the after-party can be purchased separately for $10 per ticket.

 

Awards and the after-party will also be at the Harvey E. Oyer Park directly following weigh-in at 3pm.   The after-party will feature a cookout, Lionfish tasting, raffles and games!

The captain’s meeting will be held on Thursday, October 16th at 6pm at the Old Key Lime House in Lantana, FL.  Captains are required to attend and all derby participants are welcome to attend.

Help us clean up the reef and help preserve the health of the ecosystem!
