Comments  
I was very pleased with the dive operation. A couple impressive things: (1)
They go to the trouble of being blue-star certified, i.e. environmentally
sensitive; (2) the dive master called off the dive to the Vandenberg even
though we were already at the site, because of strong current. I'm an
advanced diver, and this was a smart move on his part, because of risk of
drifting out of sight if the line slipped, and of entrapment if upstream of
an opening. People should know though that the winter months are dicey for
dive conditions in Florida. The vis and temperature are much better in late
spring and summer, which is when I'll go back in the future.
