'Wreck Trek' Dive Initiative Showcasing Keys Shipwrecks Extended Through 2014
FLORIDA KEYS — Several thousand certified divers visit the Florida Keys annually to dive a string of sunken vessels and artificial reefs between Key Largo and Key West, prompting the extension through Jan. 1, 2014, of a popular "Wreck Trek Passport Program" that rewards divers for logging a series of wreck dives.
Shipwrecks and artificial reefs are among the island chain's most appealing dive features. As in the inaugural program that debuted in 2010-12, divers are to receive an official Florida Keys Wreck Trek logbook upon reserving a dive trip with one of more than 30 participating dive shops. They can use the logbook to track their dives and retain it as a memento of the experience.
Divers who complete five of the passport logbook's wreck dives, one in each region of the Keys, receive a personalized print of Florida Keys shipwrecks. Upon completing all nine dives, participants are provided a validated entry form that they must mail in by Jan. 1, 2014, to qualify for a chance to win a grand prize.
