Third time out with Innerspace located on Big Pine Key. What was impressive
was the lack of hype when registering for the dive. Tim in the dive shop
was matter of fact about the marginal conditions of the weather as well as
the visibility. No promises of glassy seas and 100 ft. viz here and we
appreciated his willingness to provide factual information even if it cost
him customers. We decided to go out anyway and had good dives despite the
silty water from Hurricane Katrina's recent visit. Barry, an Englishman who
came for a 3 week visit 15 years ago, was our captain. He was informative
on the dive briefings, helpful and laid back as far as time parameters were
concerned. They run a 6-pack boat with adequate space for all equipment.
Nitrox is available though the dives on the reef never exceeded 30 ft. Looe
Key is a Marine Sanctuary and as a result the fish are plentiful, large and
not skittish.
