I’m looking to dive here Thursday 1/31/2013 if anyone wants to join me. Please contact me. Also, if you know the conditions during the winter, I’d love to know more.

I am trying to help find someone locally to go with you but so far no luck being that it is during the week. I would definately go but have a bum leg and can’t get in the water for a few more weeks.

Thanks NMGoose. Unfortunately, I’m driving through from Cali to Florida and can’t really stay around for the weekend. Please let me know if you find anybody. - Jason

Jason, I asked our Desert Divers group members about joining you at Blue Hole. Stepanie said she will be there about 9:30 and will have another buddy with her so you are more than welcome to join them.

Kind of murkey in the summer due to algae bloom, but a good place to learn compass navigation!!!
