PADI Women's Dive Day
Saturday Afternoon, July 18th


 

PADI is proud to present the inaugural PADI Women's Dive Day on 18 July 2015, a special day to get women together, in the water and involved in diving. With numerous events being hosted around the world, the goal is to get as many women as possible, at every level, diving on the same day in order to build awareness and interest for the sport. While the focus is on women, all are encouraged to get involved. It's a great opportunity to get the women, friends, and family members in your life together for a fun day of diving!


 

Dixie Divers is participating by offering 40% off our boat fees for any women that come and dive with us on Saturday, July 18th. We will be doing a 2-tank dive on Copenhagen and Nursury Reef in the morning, and United Caribbean wreck followed by a drift dive for the afternoon. Check-in times are 8 AM and 12:30 PM at Dixie Divers!!  


 

Seating is limited so be sure and reserve your spots today. Call the Shop at (954)420-0009


     
Catching the Bug Seminar
Featuring Jim "Chiefy" Mathie
Friday, July 24th from 6:00-7:30 PM
at Dixie Divers 

If you want to improve your lobster hunting skills this mini-season, consider taking Jim "Chiefy" Mathie's Catching the Bug Seminar. Jim is the author of "Catching the Bug, The Comprehensive Guide to

Catching the Spiny Lobster." The seminar this year is from 6:00 to 7:30PM on Friday, July 24th.

Mathie's workshop, featuring video and slides, includes advice and tricks of the bug hunting trade on how to find and catch lobster (the latter sometimes being easier than the former). It also includes great tips on how to clean and prep your lobster tails before taking that first bite.

Mathie is a retired chief with the Deerfield Beach (FL) Fire Department, but that's not where his nickname originated. Jim was spearfishing off South Florida in 2004 when he encountered and survived a shark frenzy witnessed by his diving buddies. Later that evening, as he and his friends watched Jaws, the shark hunter Quint (Robert Shaw) calls Police Chief Martin Brody (Roy Scheider) "Chiefy." At the end of the film, Chiefy kills the Great White while Quint becomes its last victim. And since Mathie was a real fire chief at the time, the nickname seemed appropriate.

Chiefy has been hunting spiny lobster and spearfishing in South Florida for more than 25 years. He published "Catching the Bug" in 2011. He has also written a book on spearfishing "Catching the Spear-it: the ABC's of Spearfishing." Mathie, who retired in 2007, has been featured in the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, interviewed on the Paul and Young Ron Morning Radio Show, and writes the "Nautical View" column in the Deerfield Beach Observer.


 

Cost of the seminar is $20 and includes a copy of "Catching the Bug."


 

We have limited seating for the Seminar, so be sure and reserve your spots today. Call the Shop at (954)420-0009


     
Dive the M/V Castor
Sunday Afternoon, July 26th


 

The M/V Castor was sunk on December 14, 2001 in 110 feet of water. It measures 258 feet long by 37 feet wide and 50 feet tall, rising to within 60 feet of the surface. For safety reasons, all hatches and doors have been removed making it easy for penetration...if the groupers allow it! This dive site is notorious for Goliath Groupers, one of the largest aggregation sites!! They've already begun to arrive and we expect these to be a memorable dives through the fall. Check out our video from last year below!!


 


 


 

Check-in time is at 12:30 PM with a 1:30 PM departure time. Feel free to bring drinks and snacks for a laid-back Sunday dive!

Lobster Mini-Season
Opens July 29-30 


 For all bug eaters/lobster hunters out there, Mini lobster season is right around the corner. If you have never tried catching a bug before, this is a great event for both beginners and advanced divers. Mini lobster season lasts for 48 hours and then reopens again August 6th through the end of March 2014. The Lady Go Diver crew will be more than happy to take you to our lobster filled reefs. In the Florida Keys, the limit per person per day is 6 lobsters; but here in our area the limit is 12 per person per day.

This year, the FWC has approved ONE extra lobster per diver per day with a minimum catch of 10 lionfish (click here for more info). 


We are running 4 trips dedicated to mini-season this year. Wednesday and Thursday AM check-in is 8:00 AM with the afternoon check-in at 12:30 PM. 

This is a highly anticipated event so make your reservations ASAP by calling Dixie Divers at (954) 420-0009. We expect a sell-out for this event so don't wait till the last minute to make your reservations!

Dive the Captain Tony
Sunday Afternoon, August 16th


 

The Captain Tony a.k.a. M/V Becks was sunk on October 22, 1996 in 85 feet of water where she sits upright with her bow to the South.

Originally named the M/V Becks, this 167 foot long Dutch freighter was renamed the Captain Tony in memory of Captain Tony Townsend, a local dive charter captain. After being down for nearly a

decade, the Capt. Tony sports lots of growth and life, including several Goliath Groupers who often reside in the engine room. There are openings for entering the wreck, just be sure to bring a dive light. With good visibility and no current, it is possible to make a swim to the nearby Budweiser bar wreck. If you leave the Capt. Tony from the bow on the port side, follow the rock piles south and slightly eastward into deeper water. Remember to monitor your heading, depth, and dive time. Safety markers are recommended for divers looking to make the swim.
Our second tank will be a drift dive over a local reef around 60 feet.


 

Check-in time is at 12:30 PM with a 1:30 PM departure time. Feel free to bring drinks and snacks for a laid-back Sunday dive!
