My wife and I visit our children and grandchildren that live along the Atlantic edge of Florida about three times a year, and I often try to get in a bit of ocean diving while there. Living in Virginia and a considerable distance from the coast forces me to spend a lot of time quarry diving, so it’s always a real delight to catch a Florida charter and check out the salt life! On December 24th of 2019 I booked a 2-tank drift dive on the Republic IV, one of several boats owned and chartered by Jup...
