The diving around here is decent in Feb. I usually wear a 7 mil and you might want a hood. I’ve been out with on the Dive Locker’s boat and they do a good job. (If the weather is uncooperative, don’t forget about the springs just to the north.)

I’ve been spoiled by the caribbean and found the viz pretty weak. Still, a chance to get wet is not to be passed over. Looked into doing the Oriskany but ended up just diving an old Navy dive tender and some sunken barges. Not a lot of wildlife. I’ve got a 5 mil suit that worked fine in September.

Don’t forget the springs!

Especially Vortex!!! Of course I’m a little partial to it cause I work there
