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.
