What will we see on the reef?

You will see many tropical reef fish including Parrotfish, Seargant Majors, Trunkfish, Snapper, Grunt, Hogfish.  Since it is in a surf zone, there a a few encrusting corals and plenty of crevaces – a great place for juvenile fish.

What about waves?
The majority of the reef life is located in a surf zone.  If the surf conditions are too rough, we will comb the beach and shallows instead.

About Us

“I feel closer to God underwater than anywhere else on Earth”

That is what I hear from divers constantly.  My name is Tec Clark and I have been blessed to be a professional scuba instructor and diving industry leader since 1988. But in 2007 I became a true believer in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and it became apparent to me that there was a reason why people feel closer to God underwater.  There is something about the beauty, colors, patterns, diversity, tranquility and designs that make us incredibly aware of our Creator, God.

It was put on my heart to create a ministry that interprets God’s underwater world from a scriptural perspective.  That scriptural perspective of educating others about God’s underwater creation, brings tenets of creation, environmental stewardship and Christian discipleship to the forefront of Reef Ministries. In turn, Reef Ministries helps make your time underwater more worshipful.  Whether scuba diving, freediving, snorkeling or visiting an aquarium, I hope you feel closer to God as you bask in His wonderful creation.


Reef Ministries’ mission is to showcase the underwater world as the handiwork of God.

Statement of Faith:

There is one true God, the Creator of the universe, including mankind. He eternally exists in the three persons of the Trinity – the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the eternal and living Word, who became man, being born into this world through the virgin, Mary. Jesus died on the cross for our sins and our salvation. We receive forgiveness of sins by turning to Him in faith. He rose from the dead and ascended into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God the Father. He is the only mediator between man and God.

The Holy Spirit has come into the world to reveal and glorify Christ, and to apply the saving work of Christ to men. His fullness, power and control are appropriated in the believer’s life by faith. Every believer is called to live a holy and fruitful life by the power of the indwelling Spirit.
