(305) 809-4700

Adam Brynes is on the Key West based buoy team and is integrally involved in the inspection, maintenance, and installation of buoys throughout the sanctuary. The work is critical for supporting resource protection and sustainable use, as the marker buoys delineate the boundaries of special zones and protected areas, while mooring buoys are used as an alternative to anchoring. Born and raised on the island of Manhattan, Brynes has been on boats since age five. He has been diving the Florida Keys since 1980, and is a professional mariner and diver. His qualifications include being a U.S. Coast Guard master captain, dive medical technician, dive instructor, and a working diver.
