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.
