2007 Wooden Boat Festival...


The Dive Team responded to a request to set up a "Touch-Tank" presentation at the 2007 Wooden Boat Festival and once again provided an outstanding booth and demonstration for the community...

Children had the opportunity to touch and learn about local Marine specimens... This event was also covered by the Asbury Park Press and comments printed there:

"I liked seeing all the boats," said Holly Phillips, the 8-year-old daughter of Jim The elder Phillips said that they attended the festival every year, coming by boat.

"She swims like a fish and likes anything to do with water," Phillips said, watching Holly hold a hermit crab proffered by Sue Lewicki of Old Bridge, a biologist and member of the Point Pleasant First Aid Squad Dive Team.

"There's a lot of different types of life in the ocean," said Flo Melo of Brick, also a dive team member. "We want people to respect the ocean, realize that these creatures are alive, not Christmas decorations."
