Miami Lionfish Derby 2020 - September 26

SALTY SPINES presents the MIAMI LIONFISH DERBY 2020 SERIES

This year things might be a little bit different but we are still putting together a series of Lionfish Derbies to help eradicate our Miami waters of this gorgeous but invasive species all while donating to various charities!

Our derbies will be INDIVIDUAL with entrants competing for CASH PRIZES. The prizes will be for LARGEST and SMALLEST lionfish for each date and an overall LARGEST and SMALLEST for those who participate in at least TWO separate derbies. 

All trips will depart out of Miami Beach Marina on the Big Com-Ocean. Dive sites will include two interesting sites, wrecks, drifts, and reefs* *Dive sites are subject to change and will be chosen based off conditions.

Trips at 8:30AM and 1:00PM

Proceeds will go towards History of Diving Museum

We will be following all CDC guidelines and protocols as well. So please be prepared to wear masks and keep 6’ of distance. We are limited to 14 divers per trip so it’s basically like a private charter and will make the sites more enjoyable as they won’t seem crowded with hunters!

Even if you aren’t a hunter, this is a great opportunity to dive some different dive sites and contribute to charities that are helping educate current and future generations about why our oceans are so important!

If you happen to be the one who catches THE MOST LIONFISH of that tournament, all Lionfish spines donated will go towards a SALTY SPINES collection (keychains, zipper pulls, coasters, etc.) with your personal touch. Add some glitter, add a daisy flower, whatever it is, it is your LIMITED EDITION collection.
