For me, Labor Day brings back memories of the beginning of the school year. But Labor Day is much more than that. It's an annual celebration of the social and economic achievements of American workers, and you may even get the day off. Whatever your plans, we wish you a very happy and safe day.
For divers, September brings back the goliath groupers. These huge fish have love on their minds. Actually, they congregate in August and will continue this behavior until October. At times they gather in large groups of 100 or more to spawn - it's called the goliath grouper aggregation. It's a great reason to join the USA Dive Club. We have a trip each year to try and catch the groupers getting down to business.
We have very active overseas and local diving programs and, although this year's overseas diving is over, Nils Jacobsen, VP of Overseas Diving, is hard at work on the 2024 and 2025 seasons. Ryan Goheen, VP of Local Diving, will keep his program going strong through October. Ryan, along with USA's year-round divers, will continue diving together through the winter months.
Just to keep things interesting, from time to time we'll come up with a non-diving event. Guests are welcome to attend all of our functions.
What are you waiting for? It's simple to join us. From our Home page just click "JOIN US" and follow the easy-to-understand instructions. Even better, visit us at one of our meetings. We meet on the first Thursday of every month at the Aloft Hotel, Delray Beach. We'd enjoy meeting you.
As always, we invite you to browse through our extensive Photo Gallery to take a look at our social and diving activities.
