Comments We have lived on FL gulfcoast for over 30 years, and this was our first gulf dive. We had 2 newly cert. family members, and needed somewhere closeby that was calm, shallow, and with a descent line.
The operation was arranged by Paul with SQ, and we were pleased with the attentiveness, and help from the crew. Water and crackers were provided on board.The dives were in the 50-60 ft. range. One dive was to a barge, and the other to a culvert area. We saw Goliath groupers(inside the barge)and snook- something I'd never seen before. Also arrow crabs, numerous 3-row cukes, barracudas, flounder,snappers, ocean trigger, puffer- but the sitings were few and far between. This dive served them well, helping them to learn proper bouyancy,and their safety stops, after a bad initial certification. Most of the dives to this area are done by spear fishers, who were also on our dive.
