Hi, I’m looking for a dive buddy to do some spring diving. I’m not from the area, so someone with knowledge of the local sites and springs would be a big help. I wouldn’t mind going back to Ginnie Springs, but I would like to try somewhere different as I am not here more than once per year. I’m not opposed to Jacksonville ocean diving, I’m just not sure if my exposure protection is appropriate for the ocean water here this time year (3mm wetsuit, 5/3 hood, tropical gloves).

If you’re available and want to do some diving then let me know!

Awesome, I would love to join you depending on your dive profile. I’m not cave certified so I won’t be doing any penetration past the cavern area. I would only be able to do the 27th because I am leaving to go back to Phoenix the 28th. How many tanks? Are you staying in the Jacksonville area by any chance?

Vortex looks awesome, but I am goin to have to pass. It is just much farther than I want to drive for a dive while I’m here, especially because I am still visiting family while I’m in town. Thank you for the invite though, I do appreciate it.
