​​There will be only 4 participants for the week.

August 2024 will find Diving For A Cause back in Louisiana with Captain Brandon Hendrickson, exploring Venice and a plethora of offshore trips that will take you to the most productive waters.

Captain Brandon Hendrickson will lead the team of spearfishermen selectively harvesting amberjacks, mangrove snappers, wahoo and cobia just south of Louisiana in the deep blue clear waters miles off shore near the oil rigs. We will adhere to the current regulations of harvesting at that time.

While the divers spend 3 days spearfishing, 70% of their catch will be harvested and donated to Second Harvest Food Bank.
"We have a mission to end hunger in South Louisiana by providing food access, advocacy, education, & disaster response. And with your support, we provide more than 30 million meals annually and help 100,000+ people every month."


These trips are for 5 days, 4 nights and include 3 full days of unbelievable spearfishing off Venice, Louisiana, fish cleaning and packaging, housing on a beautiful houseboat with tigersdenvenice.com, and shared transportation back and forth from New Orleans airport to the lodge.

The cost is $2800 per person and includes:
1. Spearfishing on a 39' Contender, all fuel included, for three full days under the guidance of Capt Brandon Hendrickson
2. Housing and delicious home cooked meals for the full 4 nights on a large houseboat, fully furnished, at tigersdenvenice.com
3. All cleaning of the harvested fish while you relax and enjoy dinner with a private cook every evening on the houseboat. No need to prepare dinners.

Participants will deliver the fish in person to Second Harvest Food Bank in New Orleans, and experience how their generous donation makes a difference for the recipients at this food bank.
