Challenges Facing Host of Savannah River Site Projects in 2021; DOE Must Strive for More Openness, Better Outreach

SRS Watch logo

SRS Watch is a non-profit organization working for sound policies and projects by the U.S. Department of Energy at SRS.

Savannah River Site is located in South Carolina, across the river from Georgia. SRS operated 5 nuclear reactors and produced over 36 metric tons of weapon-grade plutonium, seprated in two reprocessing plants, producing a vast amount of high-level nuclear waste.

Abandoned plutonium fuel (MOX) building, courtesy High Flyer to SRS Watch. Being considered for the unjustified SRS Plutonium Bomb Plant (PBP). The PBP would mean at least 7.5 metric tons of plutonium shipped to SRS, on top of 50 MT for plutonium disposition & VTR fuel.

In 2021, the U.S. Department of Energy's Savannah River Site faces many challenges with nuclear waste and nuclear weapons projects but progress is possible.

Along with better public interaction, the focus at DOE's Savannah River Site in 2021 must remain on clean-up of nuclear waste and resources must not be diverted to the unneeded Plutonium Bomb Plant.”

— Tom Clements, Director, Savannah River Site Watch, Columbia, South Carolina

COLUMBIA, SC, USA, January 14, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Proposed and Unjustified SRS Plutonium Bomb Plant (PBP), to Fill the Plutonium Fuel (MOX) Money Hole, to be Opposed and Formally Reviewed in 2021, Termination Possible

The Savannah River Site faces import of over 50 metric tons of plutonium for three projects: 1) plutonium disposition (via "dilute & dispose"), 2) plutonium pit production for old and new nuclear warheads, and 3) fabrication of fuel for the ill-conceived Versatile Test Reactor (VTR). The VTR lacks congressional support and the Plutonium Bomb Plant is in trouble and facing growing opposition both in Congress and by public interest and arms control groups and may be terminated. We will be attentive that more plutonium does not get stranded at SRS (on top of the 11.5 metric tons now stored in the old K-Reactor).

Citizen engagement on projects at the Department of Energy’s Savannah River Site – located near Aiken, South Carolina – began in earnest in the mid-1970s. Despite misguided efforts by DOE and its contractors, a host of ill-conceived projects have been terminated, with great cost savings to the tax payer, avoided waste burden at the site and strengthened national security. (See SRS Watch list of impressive public victories from the 1970s through 2020.) Such successes can be repeated in 2021.

As we enter 2021, numerous programs at SRS face scrutiny as a new Congress takes over and a new administration implements new policies. The lack of openness by DOE and its National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) and the hostile attitude toward the public, long a debilitating problem with DOE, again will face challenges by public interest groups. Of primary importance, DOE and SRS must operate in a more democratic and transparent manner. Savannah River Site Watch, along with colleague groups near DOE sites in the Alliance for Nuclear Accountability (ANA) – https://ananuclear.org/ – will renew efforts to hold DOE accountable and will work with new DOE officials in the development of sound policies.

Here’s a snapshot by Tom Clements, director of SRS Watch (https://srswatch.org/), of some issues facing the Savannah River Site and DOE in 2021 – for the 4-page discussion of these issues click on this link to the SRS Watch website:

1. Proposed, unjustified SRS Plutonium Bomb Plant (PBP), to make plutonium pits for nuclear warheads, will get a thorough review in 2021 by DOE, NNSA and Congress. Expanded pit production at the troubled Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), presented with a straight face by DOE as the "plutonium center of excellence," will continue to be challenged.

2. Investigations into the mismanaged plutonium fuel (MOX) project at SRS are still urgently needed by DOE, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) and Congress, which has failed to carry out its constitutional oversight power.

3. Review of need for new nuclear weapons, including the Ground Based Strategic Deterrent (W87-1 warhead) and a submarine-launched ballistic missile (W93 warhead) and DOE and Department of Defense (DOD) support facilities will be conducted. A New Nuclear Posture Review (NPR) and Stockpile Stewardship and Management Plan will be prepared but a plan not influenced by the military-industrial complex is needed.

4. Processing of radioactive tritium gas at SRS, for nuclear weapons, will increase in 2021, bringing safety, health and security risks. Tritium rods (TPBARs) are made by WesDyne/Westinghouse Government Services at the dual-use Westinghouse uranium fuel plant near Columbia, SC – which agency regulates TPBAR fabrication and waste streams remains a mystery – and the rods are irradiated in TVA's Watts Bar Nuclear Bomb Reactors in Tennessee and taken to SRS for processing.

5. Processing at SRS of surplus weapons plutonium for disposal as waste is now undergoing a review under the National Environmental Policy Act. Capacity of the DOE's Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) underground facility in New Mexico is "oversubscribed" due to this project and transuranic (TRU) waste from pit production and the VTR.

6. Plutonium fuel fabrication at SRS for the proposed, unneeded Versatile Test Reactor (VTR) could bring 30 metric tons of plutonium to SRS. Planning for the "Virtual" Test Reactor is on shaky ground could be terminated. Comments are now being received on the draft EIS on the project.

7. Questions about the impacts of a recent cyberattack on DOE have gone unanswered by SRS and DOE headquarters.

8. SRS has failed to clarify the status of start-up of the Salt Waste Processing Facility (SWPF), to process high-level nuclear waste out of the SRS waste tanks. That must change in 2021.

9. Plans by the Savannah River National Lab (SRNL) and the Jülicher Entsorgungsgesellschaft für Nuklearanlagen (JEN) to import to SRS and dump German highly radioactive spent fuel – from the long-closed commercial gas-cooled reactors AVR (Forschungszentrum Jülich) and THTR (spent fuel now at Ahaus) – are in trouble but remain alive and must be terminated.

10. Clean-up of nuclear and chemical waste at SRS remains the king of employment. A SRS document frem the 4th quarter of Fiscal Year 2020, obtained by SRS Watch via a FOIA request, confirms over 11,000 people employed at SRS but that number will fall as waste tanks are closed by 2030, freeing funding for safer, environmentally sound projects elsewhere.

11. Efforts to dump 1300 vitrified high-level waste canisters – from the Defense Waste Processing Facility, DWPF – by 2029 as low-level waste or transuranic waste is misguide and will fail. High-level nuclear waste must be disposed of in a geologic facility, the pursuit of which must be renewed.

12. Spent fuel from the Finnish research reactor FiR is likely now on its way from Finland to the Idaho National Lab on the UK-flagged PNTL vessel Pacific Grebe, from the port of Vuosaari, Finland to the port of Savannah, Georgia.

13. Finally and significantly, DOE's "public affairs" office (we can't verify that such exists) and the SRS Office of External Affairs have failed in providing the public with information and responding to public requests. This must change when new officials are appointed at DOE, including at DOE HQ, the NNSA and DOE's Office of Environmental Management (EM).

Trends in the Airline Business for 2021

NWABF aviation trends biofuels sustainable aviation fuel

NWABF explores aviation trends for 2021

SCOTTSDALE, AZ, UNITED STATES, January 14, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — As we look forward to the world of aviation in 2021, we realize that the future of SAF is very promising – Bloomberg News reports that more widespread use of jet biofuels is expected in the coming years, and it’s important not to lose sight of the end goal.

In the meantime, Northwest Advanced is committed to staying focused on our core business goal to produce and provide sustainable aviation fuel to Delta Air Lines starting in late 2024. As we work toward our goal, we understand that there will be a great many factors impacting aviation in the next few years. Let’s have a look at some of the trends developing for 2021 in the airline industry.

The Safety – Travel Precautions
Traveling in 2021 via major airlines through terminals means you’re likely going to have to prove to the flight crew that you’ve tested negative for a COVID-19 test days before your flight, at the departing airport, and at the arriving airport. This is on top of the other required masks and hand sanitizer you’ll also need access to during your flight.

For example, Travel & Leisure reported recently that Delta has launched two pre-flight testing pilot programs for flights from Atlanta International Airport to Amsterdam and Rome. Travelers going to the Netherlands now have to take a COVID-19 test at least five days before arrival in Amsterdam, take a rapid test before boarding, and then take a second PCR test upon arrival in the Netherlands. Travelers on their way to Rome also have three tests to take – one 72 hours before departure, a rapid test before boarding, and a second rapid test upon arrival at the airport in Italy. Everyone should expect other potential restraints on traveling by any method other than car in the coming months.

The Security – Protecting crew and passengers
The elements of airport and airline security have ramped up in the past year due to the COVID-19 crisis, and further security measures may take hold in 2021. USA Today outlined a few areas in which passengers need to be compliant in order to fly. This includes wearing a mask over the mouth and nose before, during and after the flight while in the terminal. If you don't wear a mask, you may be asked to leave your flight. You might even be banned from future flights. TSA agents will usually be on hand to give you a mask if you’ve forgotten to bring one.

Passengers are also being required to state that they have tested negative for COVID-19 or “show proof” that they are negative. Trying to fly if you have the virus could get you on a no-fly block list administered by the TSA. Some airlines, including Delta, are not booking middle seats until March 2021, in order to provide passengers with additional safety on flights.

In the future, another security measure will likely emerge in the form of a Digital Travel Credential (DTC) to replace the traditional passport. It’s being looked at and examined by key industry bodies like the ICAO. Having a digital identity card may alarm some people, but for airline passengers it seems to be the step in the right direction to add a layer of security and flexibility for travelers.

The Savings – Moving to SAF by 2030
As airlines use this pandemic to look at every part of their business to find out how to reduce costs, it is also under industry goals to reduce carbon gas emissions. A top priority for airplane makers is having the ability to reduce an aircraft’s fuel consumption. The team at Northwest Advanced Bio-Fuels, LLC is committed to working with Delta Air Lines on its goal to use sustainable aviation fuel in order to become carbon neutral by 2030.

The global CORSIA agreement is the industry agreement for moving forward with sustainable aviation fuel opportunities. The pilot phase begins in 2021. The United Nations group ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) announced its next call to supply carbon credits under the global aviation offsetting CORSIA plan. The intake runs through February 10, and is open to for emissions unit programs to apply for eligibility.

The Recovery – Moving Ahead
The major airlines have just gone through a year of business uncertainty, and in 2021, are charging ahead to find new ways to attract customers back to the airports. As mentioned above, Delta is maintaining its leadership position in setting standards, and is keeping its middle seats un-booked until March to give its customers extra comfort and safety during flights. Delta Air Lines CEO Ed Bastian expects 2021 to be a year of recovery, and the airline expects to be cash-flow positive again by mid-year, 2021.

Other airlines are looking to lower fares temporarily to bring back customers. And all the airlines are behind vaccination efforts to keep everyone clean and safe, and to bring a sense of calm to flying again.

These are a few of the aviation and airline trends we see in play during this new year. NWABF remains committed and excited about the future of sustainable aviation fuel. We continue on a forward path to develop our Grays Harbor, WA Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) Project to produce and supply 60+ million gallons of SAF annually for Delta Air Lines.

General Crop Farming Industry Trends Include Use Of Microbe-Enhanced Seeds To Boost Crop Production

General Crop Farming Market Report 2021: COVID-19 Impact And Recovery To 2030

General Crop Farming Global Market Report 2021: COVID-19 Impact And Recovery To 2030

The Business Research Company’s General Crop Farming Global Market Report 2021: COVID-19 Impact and Recovery to 2030

LONDON, GREATER LONDON, UK, January 14, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — New year, new updates! Our reports have been revised for market size, forecasts, and strategies to take on 2021 after the COVID-19 impact: https://www.thebusinessresearchcompany.com/global-market-reports

Implementing microbe-enhanced seeds boosts crop production and increases profitability in the global farming market with their ability to produce crops in drought conditions. The microbes function similarly to beneficial bacteria in the human intestine and are found on the surface of the plant and in plant tissue. This treatment for cotton seeds utilizes beneficial microbes that live in plants to produce a cotton plant without genetic modification. The microbe-enhanced cotton developed by Indigo agriculture is already implemented on 50,000 acres spread across five different states in the southern part of the USA. Monsanto is another agriculture company which has released many microbial products.

The global general crop farming market size is expected to grow from $306.49 billion in 2020 to $323.44 billion in 2021 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.5%. The growth is mainly due to the companies rearranging their operations and recovering from the COVID-19 impact, which had earlier led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working, and the closure of commercial activities that resulted in operational challenges. The market is expected to reach $401.09 billion in 2025 at a CAGR of 6%.

The regions covered in the general crop farming market are Asia-Pacific, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, South America, Middle East, Africa. As per TBRC’s general crop farming market report, Asia Pacific was the largest region in the global general crop farming market, accounting for 38% of the market in 2020. Eastern Europe was the second largest region accounting for 16% of the global market. Africa was the smallest region in the global general crop farming market.

Reed Cagle believes that the price of gold certainly will increase in 2021

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO, USA, January 13, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Reed Cagle has made some serious strides in the energy industry over the last two decades. Charles Reed Cagle has achieved great success in particular as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of HEI, an energy enterprise. In addition to his experience in this field, Reed Cagle also is knowledgeable about the mining and the gold market. He's made some predictions on gold prices for the year 2021 that may be quite surprising.

Charles Reed Cagle Operates a Copper and Gold Processing Plant

A big part of the career of Reed Cagle in recent years is that he has been running a copper and gold processing plant in Chile. Since he became involved in this industry in 2011 in the US and South America, Mr. Cagle definitely learned a great deal. His mining work in this manner led him to develop a way to separate out toxic material from liquids and neutralize it while still recovering precious metals such as gold. The processing plant in Copiapo does use this technology and method, and there are sure to be further applications for this around the world.

Reed Cagle's Current Work in the United States

Today, Reed Cagle is in Texas and he is helping midsize independent oil companies in streamlining their operations as well as get them to make lower-risk decisions with their work in this sector in Texas and Colorado. He consults with a large commercial landscaping company in Texas as well.

Reed Cagle on Gold

Reed Cagle believes that the price of gold certainly will increase in 2021. There already has been some increase and his expert opinion is that this isn't going to stop anytime soon. This is because the demand for gold is higher than its supply. The supply likely will never see a reduction because this is one of the most durable of the valuable materials out there. In 2020, there also was an increase and though the reality will depend on several factors such as economic and geopolitical, it's sure to be a strong year for this precious metal.

If the US dollar continues to grow weaker this year, this will prove to be a pivotal moment for the gold industry. Though demand from central banks in the US is down, there still is plenty of demand. It's necessary to buy while it's lower, before the projected increases, and pay close attention to Reed Cagle and others on this topic so that you can make an educated decision on why you should sell it.

dynaCERT Possesses Potential Trillion Dollar Carbon Credit Patent

dynaCERT is 2018 Gold winner of Edison Award

dynaCERT Inc. (T.DYA) holds world wide patents on the means and methods of monitoring and monetizing carbon credits within emission reductions in diesel engines

dynaCERT Inc. (TSX:DYA)

Shares of DYA currently trades under C$1/share and present an opportunity for investors to experience extraordinary gains.”

— Market Equities Research Group

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, January 13, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — dynaCERT Inc. (TSX: DYA) (OTCQB: DYFSF) (Frankfurt: DMI) is on the cusp of a major catalyst entering 2021:

• In a recent year-end/new-year corporate interview, the CEO of dynaCERT disclosed the extreme level of latent potential poised to be realized — the CEO recounted an opinion expressed to him in the closing weeks of 2020 by a securities analyst; “that one worldwide patent you've got on the means and methods of monitoring and monetizing carbon credits within an internal combustion engine, that's a trillion dollars in itself.” (See related interview URL link: https://www.newsfilecorp.com/release/71201 online).

– dynaCERT holds the world wide patents on the means and methods of monitoring and monetizing carbon credits within emission reductions in diesel engines, dynaCERT holds this in 12 different verticals. dynaCERT is now in the process of certification so carbon credits generated and tracked can be sold on the open market. This alone, once approved and gains traction, has serious potential to catapult dynaCERT toward becoming a multi-billion Fortune 500 company.

– dynaCERT’s HydraGEN™ (HG) technology is proven (on diesel trucks) to result in up to 88.7% reduction in NOx emissions, ~50% reduction in CO, 6-19% reduction in CO2, up to 57.1% reduction in Total Hydrocarbon emissions, 55%+ reduction in particulate matter (no black smoke), up to ~20% reduction in fuel consumption, provides better torque, and lower maintenance costs.

Look for major investment to flood into dynaCERT Inc. once VERRA Authority clears dynaCERT’s Carbon Credit application, establishing a novel auditable mechanism that will provide solutions and opportunities to all levels of governments, organizations, and businesses globally.

The United Nations has certified dynaCERT’s product under its Smart Sustainable Cities Program (U4SSC) and the technology is now recognized in important circles as the future of carbon credits. dynaCERT’s carbon credit tracking/auditing technology is now positioned to be advanced in a coordinated fashion globally as the only universally accepted standard ready for mass adoption. The Verified Carbon Standard, Verra or VCS, formerly the Voluntary Carbon Standard, is a standard for certifying carbon emissions reductions. VCS is administered by Verra. The VCS Program is the world’s most widely used voluntary GHG program. Over 1,600 certified VCS projects have collectively reduced or removed more than 500 million tonnes of carbon and other GHG emissions from the atmosphere. Verra is associated with the Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition, which is comprised of major government partners and private sector partners globally. dynaCERT clients can expect to see top dollar in the voluntary carbon market once it’s application is cleared for implementation.

Looking at dynaCERT’s long haul trucking market alone, a single truck can generate as much as $3,000 in carbon credits per annum using HG technology. dynaCERT’s plan, once it has finished going through approval with VERRA authority, is to maintain 50% of the carbon credit$ and 50% of it will go to the fleet owners. The methodology now in for approval with VERRA USA uses dynaCERT's patented HydraGEN™ Technology to lower carbon emissions and its HydraLytica™ Telematics technology to securely record carbon emissions and other non-personal data from diesel and gas engines. dynaCERT’s application is currently being dealt with, led by Environmental-Partners of the UK.

dynaCERT’s HydraGEN™ technology is proven through multiple top-level independent lab studies in various jurisdictions around the globe (TUV North and South in UK, PIT Group in North America, ICAT in India, labs in the UAE, etc…) to reduce harmful emission in diesel transport trucks and improve fuel economy. Transport trucks were dynaCERT’s first target market, the Company now makes different sized HG units and more industries are starting to adopt the technology — look for exponential growth across multiple sectors.

The Company currently installs its HG technology on class 8 trucks, buses, refrigerator trailers, small trucks, electrical power generation units of all sizes, farming equipment and agriculture equipment, construction equipment, mining equipment, and it is now moving into marine vessels (the first ships are now being organized for installs). The Company believes it will also at some point in the future be installing its technology on train locomotives and ocean going vessels (which are major polluters; one container ship can spew the equivalent pollution per annum of 50 million cars), and it is currently working with a group in Europe to develop a unit for passenger vehicles.

dynaCERT is gaining a strong foothold in the mining sector now, where a single piece of large equipment can burn over $1M/year in fuel. Feedback from mining experts and dealers servicing this industry reveal that it is not uncommon for a capital outlay (to buy a HG unit) to be recouped with a ROI payback within 8 months from a nominal 5% fuel savings.

HydraLytica™ is dynaCERT’s proprietary software with remote real-time telematics which the Company has retained worldwide experts to establish an audit trail of fuel savings and future carbon credits. dynaCERT's telematics developer invented Apple Pay™ and PayPal™. Related to HydraLytica™, dynaCERT is also greatly escalating its scope of applications and utility to respond to the growing industry needs of Logistics companies and the broader Trucking Management software ecosystem. On September 23, 2020 the Company announced that dynaCERT International Strategic Holdings Inc. (“DISH”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of dynaCERT, has agreed with Corsario Ltd. of Mississauga, Canada, dynaCERT’s HydraLytica™ software developer, to magnify and maintain the functionality of its new proprietary suite of FreightTech software applications. GP LogiX Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Corsario established specifically for this single purpose, will market the functionality of dynaCERT’s new FreightTech software and share equally with DISH all financial benefits, thus providing yet another stream of cash flow to dynaCERT through DISH.

Axilion’s technology is the future of mobility management”

— John D. Porcari

TEL AVIV,, ISRAEL, January 13, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Mr. Porcari brings to Axilion extensive experience, including at the highest of levels as Deputy Secretary at the US Department of Transportation between 2009 – 2014. As Deputy Secretary, his strong leadership and strategic vision saw the Department and Nation’s transportation system more robust than when he started. During his tenure, Porcari was responsible for implementing projects, including transit projects throughout the country worth billions of dollars, while simultaneously streamlining approval processes and ensuring better environmental outcomes.

Prior to his position as Deputy Secretary, Porcari twice served as Secretary of the Maryland Department of Transportation. Mr. Porcari transformed Maryland’s transportation capital program, constructing the Woodrow Wilson Bridge, Metro Blue Line Extension, double-tracking the Baltimore Light Rail system, planning and designing the Purple Line Light Rail project, and adopting a statewide plan to double transit ridership in Maryland.

More recently, Porcari served as President, US Advisory Services, WSP, with some of his most notable projects, including the Gateway Program, the Moynihan Train Hall project, and planning, environmental and financial services for bus, light rail, subway, and commuter rail projects throughout the United States.

Porcari’s appointment to Axilion US comes at a significant time with President-elect Biden’s commitment to renewing transportation infrastructure and tackling climate change through technological innovation. Axilion’s AI-based Digital Twin platform, built from the ground up alongside Microsoft, is reducing traffic-related emissions, prioritizing eco-friendly travel modes while cutting commute times by up to 47%. With increased attention on improving air quality and transportation sources accounting for approximately one-third of US greenhouse gas emissions, Axilion’s solutions allow cities to understand, analyze, and optimize their mobility based on their own needs.

As president of Axilion US, Porcari will use his prowess to expand the company’s engagements with its strategic partners, such as Microsoft, different automakers, and grow its sales pipeline with transportation industry business partners such as Econolite. Mr. Porcari will also be responsible for engaging with the DOT, AASHTO, and other transportation agencies and using his excellent contact list and understanding of these areas to do so.

Oran Dror, Axilion CEO, Co-Founder & Chairman, comments: “As Axilion expands into the US market, John’s distinguished record and knowledge of US transit and the DOT is invaluable for our successful growth. His exceptional leadership skills and relationships with those in the automotive and transit industries will open up new opportunities, allowing our AI & AGI based Digital Twin cloud technology to empower more cities to overcome pressing climate change challenges.”

On his appointment, John D. Porcari commented: “I’m thrilled to join Axilion as President for the US entity at such an important time for the company, the transportation industry, and the planet as a whole. With President-elect Biden’s commitment to driving sustainability through innovation, Axilion’s technology is the future of mobility management. It has an unlimited potential to unlock long-standing traffic gridlocks in major cities and reduce emissions. I look forward to introducing this unique technology to more cities.”

Shawn Stumpf Sarasota Says These Are the Best Diving Spots in and Around Florida

Shawn Stumpf Sarasota, a frequent diver, has been checking out various dive spots in and around Florida in recent months.

SARASOTA, FL, UNITED STATES, January 13, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Diving has become a popular pastime for many in recent years. And with much of society shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic, diving has offered many a great way to escape and enjoy nature. Shawn Stumpf Sarasota, a frequent diver, has been checking out various dive spots in and around Florida in recent months. Now, he’s going to share some of his favorite diving spots.

“Florida is surrounded by oceans and there are many rivers and sinkholes worth exploring too,” Shawn Stumpf Sarasota claims. “I count it as a blessing that I live in Florida because it affords so many great diving opportunities. That said, some spots are better than others.”

So where are the best diving spots in Florida? Shawn Stumpf Sarasota suggests first considering what you want to see and do. Then, find locations that match your interests, skill level, and other factors. That said, Shawn Stumpf Sarasota believes that there are some standout dive spots everyone should consider.

“A lot of people want to see manatees,” Shawn Stumpf Sarasota says. “Checking them off your bucket list is a good way to start your diving season. And when it comes to sea cows, Crystal River may well be the best place.”

Not worried about catching up with manatees? Shawn Stumpf Sarasota says cave diving is a lot of fun, but only experienced divers or those with the right mentors should jump into advanced cave diving. New to cave diving? Shawn Stumpf Sarasota says that beginner cave divers should check out this particular spot.

“The Blue Grotto is very accessible, and while it offers a great time for cave diving, it’s beginner-friendly,” Shawn Stumpf Sarasota argues. “There are a lot of great, advanced caves worth diving in, but the Blue Grotto is an excellent starting point.”

Shawn Stumpf Sarasota Says These Two Dive Spots Offer Great Sights

Exploring shipwrecks offers another unique experience. And for better or worse, many ships have sunk around Florida. Shawn Stumpf Sarasota says you should check out Key Largo if you want to see big shipwrecks.

“Exploring the shipwrecks in Key Largo is a great way to spend a few days,” Shawn Stumpf Sarasota says. “Every diver in Florida should check out Key Largo at least once.”

If you prefer natural sights rather than man-made ones, the living reefs at Looe Key are an excellent choice.

“The reefs at Looe Key are very beautiful,” Shawn Stumpf Sarasota says, “you should get to see a lot of wildlife and other sights.”

Shawn Stumpf Sarasota Suggests Snorkeling Too

Not certified for diving and looking for something a bit more beginner-friendly? Shawn Stumpf Sarasota notes that snorkeling scratches many of the same itches as diving but is often easier for people new to water exploration.

“Snorkeling is a lot of fun,” Shawn Stumpf Sarasota says. “I often prefer diving, sure, but snorkeling is less of a hassle in some ways. And if you’re new to exploring oceans and rivers, it’s an easier introduction.”
