I have been wanting to test out my new BC and upgraded Regulator on a nice easy dive. I have a boat and I am looking for anyone who wants to diving with me. I am flexible on the date as long as weekend and you can ride with me form Orlando if you do not mind a old truck :) or meet me there.

Thanks for you time.

I will do this dive with you. What depth and Crystal River location are you thinking?
Retired so almost any date works.
I live in Haines City area so it might work best to meet in Orlando and ride with you.

Your boat so you chose the location. Maybe we will use my boat next time.
Easy dive is best for me. How many tanks/dives?
Let me check the marine forecast.
+ will try to send you a PM with phone number.
Thanks

There are a few locations all close to each other. I say we play it by ear as depending on water conditions.

Three Sisters spring looks like a real easy dive.
Good visibility but the spring cools the water to an average of 73’f and I have been diving 83’F in the keys.
I need to pull my wet suit and check to see if it still fits first.
Let you know the results Wednesday afternoon.

Hi John.
As agreed we will move this location to Denton Lake in Avon Park for a meat and greet practice dive.

I’ll have some time on weekends in Oct to try some new dive sites. Like Lake Denton too, easy dive for new divers like myself.
