Possible. Are you cave certified? I’m not but been to the gate several times.

Thank you for the response. I am not cave certified/only planning to dive in the open parts of the spring and haven’t been there before.

I might be interested if you can do a morning dive. Been there a few times. I would also recommend Morrison State Park as a second or third dive, if interested. It’s about 15 mins away and provides some different scenery.

Matt—
I would prefer a morning dive, and I am up for Morrison State Park also. I haven’t had a chance to go to either yet..I moved down to Pensacola a few months ago from MA.
If you can do this weekend - I’m completely open on the 16th. The 17th I’m open in the morning but would have to start heading back to Pensacola by around 1:30.

Hey Matt. Yeah sorry I answered the first message but looks like you didn’t get it. Sunday 7am will work. It looks like you can rent cylinders right there am I right? I sent you my phone no. in an e-mail; let me know if you don’t get an email though.

You can rent cylinders, that’s correct. I believe $12 per tank and $6 for a refill. If you dive DIN like I do, they have limited tanks on hand, so you will have to do a tank plus a refill, most likely. If you dive yoke, they have a ton and it isn’t an issue. I’ll check my email and send you a text back.
