REEF “Fish Count” Dive Event By COJO Diving

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Green’s Point is a small peninsula of land that provides an eastern boundary for Letete Passage. While the lighthouse at it’s most Southern tip is no longer operational, the fog alarm remains in use. The Greens Point Light Association maintains the former lighthouse and monitoring station, which is now home to an interpretive center and vacation rental. Kelly’s Cove beach has become a popular site for local divers as it provides access to a greater variety in marine life without having to travel out to one of the Fundy islands. The dive site however is tide dependent, and caution is needed to dive within “slack” tide periods.

REEF is an international marine conservation organization that implements hands-on activities to in involve local communities in conservation-focused activities. Its mission is to protect biodiversity and ocean life by actively engaging and inspiring the public through citizen science, education, and partnerships with the scientific community.

10:30am – Register Onsite
