Wanting to do a shore dive at BHB on Friday 9/22 or Saturday 9/23. Please let me know if interested - I am looking for buddies in the South FL area :)

Check on what is happening in West Palm. ATM there is a curfew and all power will not be restored until Sunday. They are just starting to let residents back in with ID.

BHB’s FB page said viz was 1’

It took weeks for it to improve after the Lake Okeechobee discharges last year, it was a much smaller storm that picked up the boat from the east channel and wedged it under the east span. This might be worse :(

Pura Vida has scheduled a BHB beach clean up for Saturday 9/16 IF Phil Foster Park has re-opened.

Thanks for the info - I will definitely check out the clean up!

Yes Raymond even if you can get in the water you can’t see your hand in front of your face. It will take a long time for everything to get back to normal. Some pics I have seen of the blue water in the keys looks like blue silt now.

I would be interested but due to the hurricane I think it may not be great visibility, what do you think?

Bernie - I ended up booking two boat dives Thurs since they’re fully operational at the moment. I am frequently in FL, so I will keep in touch with you about diving BHB in the future once it settles down.
