Just wanted to let everyone know that the Florida Keys are back open, and need your support! The Upper Keys is in pretty good shape, especially Key Largo and Islamorada, mostly trees down and some low areas saw some flooding but businesses on these 2 islands are mostly all open and the reefs and wrecks are fine!

The Lower Keys is a bit different, mush worse damage, but some businesses are back open and need your support even more! Link below to donate to Lower Keys.

Here is link to anyone who wants to donate to the Lower Keys after Irma...

You can check out this site for details on condition of any island that you might want to visit

The Dive Center I work for open and running dive trips...as all dive shops are open in Key Largo and Islamorada...

BTW...here is video taken by one of my Dive Center’s Instructors just days after the storm...(from a Blog Post)...it shows Molasses Reef and French Reef. You can notice the sand channels are deeper after surge cleaned them out. Corals are fine really.

The condo at Summer Sea is being used indefinitely, lots of people need temp home.

My window looks like week of oct 30 or nov 5. That Holiday Inn deal you have looks good but as always it’s pp/do and I’m always single occ. I want to give my buds at FKDC some business so if/when I make it I probably will stay at Marina Del Mar and dive a day with you and a day with them.

Will post when I know more. A bit windy now that ol east wind is a btch down your way. Getting any brown water yet? Lake O discharge sure is making a mess up here and there’re sending it out both coasts. Irma woes keep coming.

BTW nice vid, I been on that same dive with those reef holes. I got stuck in 1 and had to back out hihi.
