Comments [None]I had'nt dove Fla. since I got certified there ( Key Largo ) in 1990 . And I was Amazed at how good the diving was . Water was Beautiful . 85 and clear , did some wreck diving , and alot of Reef diving . Was all drift diving , so a safty sausage was a good thing . Reefs were like Caribean diving , even though alot of people were going for Lobster . Crew was very helpful , and fun . Got ta do some freediving between dives .
Even got two of our girls to do a resot class , Erin - 10 and Lauren -13 they loved it, pool one day, then shallow open water next day , 20ish ft. Morgan and Joel , were the Instructors , and were very good , Patient , with the Kiddies and Me .
Capt. Jim also took us on a tour of his Live-Aboard boat.
Now I'm tryin ta get a group together ta do some serious divin .
