Question: Do I have to be a certified diver to take the workshop?
Answer: No, if you are not certified you can snorkel in the crystal clear waters of the Florida Keys.
Question: How deep are the Galleons?
Answer: In 1733 the Galleons were pushed on to a reef during a hurricane, so they are in shallow waters. The deepest dive you will do if you are using dive gear is 30 feet.
