WJXT's Rebecca Barry Scuba Dives with TISIRI | TISIRI
This was Rebecca Barry's (of WJXT) first offshore diving experience in Jacksonville.
She was introduced to a three finned sea turtle, a flounder, and many other sea critters inhabiting North East Florida artificial reefs.
Aboard the native Diver II included TISIRI's Joe Kistel, WJXT's Rebecca Barry and Joe Drumm, three Spear fishermen, Capt Park, and dive master Ed.
TISIRI's Kistel was along to escort WJCT's Rebecca Barry with her first dives offshore Jacksonville and film the days efforts.
The other divers aboard were aiming to catch dinner with their spear guns.
Once about 15 miles East of the Jacksonville Coast Capt Parks anchored at an artificial reef he
called the "Shadow.
The spear fishermen entered the water first and Kistel and Barry
entered shortly after.
The "Shadow" turned out to be a large barge and the visibility was so good Kistel and Barry
could see the entire barge from any position on the structure.
Kistel and Barry
were surrounded by fish of all sorts and soon came across a resting sea turtle.
Regardless the turtle seemed interested in the divers and spent some time observing Rebecca
The divers observed a diversity of life throughout the dive but did not come across any lion fish.
The second dive was on a concrete artificial reef near the Main 14+15 area.
Kistel and Barry
continued to look for lion fish but again did not come across any.
Although Kistel and Barry
did not get to see any lion fish; the dives were filled with intersting marine life and provided a pleasant introduction to Jacksonville diving for Barry

Behind the bright lights of WJXT-TV ...
Behind the bright lights of WJXT-TV Channel 4 studios, the fancy satellite maps and weather graphics, the stage make-up and perfectly coiffed hair, Rebecca Barry looks every bit the seasoned TV meteorologist.
In reality, the 27-year-old, who grew up in a Georgia town with no street lights, started her TV career while she was still attending graduate school at Mississippi State University (she's also a proud alumna of Jacksonville University).
In addition to doing the weather on weekend broadcasts, Barry, who lives Downtown, works as a weather producer at WJXT and fills in for her fellow meteorologists.
