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.
