Hi, I’m a new diver and will be going to FL on a solo vacation. I’ll be in the Jacksonville area for a few days in mid-April. Male or female, I don’t care as long as you don’t mind diving with a "newbie." Thanks!

Hi Vince. I’m planning on somewhere around the Ponte Vedra/Jacksonville area but haven’t looked for an actual dive site yet; I will do that soon.

ScubaSass, the more the merrier!

Hey Nick,

My name is Ryan. I live outside Jacksonville and have been looking for someone to go on a trip to the springs with towards Gainesville, my top pick being Devil’s Den. I am also a beginner. The springs I find pretty accessible and great for entry-level as opposed to the more ambitious shore dives, where visibility/currents/etc cause concern. Considering your dates of availability, 4/18 might be a better fit. Let me know if you are interested here or direct message.

Vince and ScubaSass, I live locally, so if you are ever seeking an additional buddy, let me know!

There’s also The Blue Grotto which looks pretty cool, and is in the vicinity of Devil’s Den, so both could be done in the same day. Also, 9 mile reef, the Acosta Bridge rubble, and a few others are offshore 9-12 miles. I’d be down to dive Devil’s Den, but for me it’d have to be afternoon on 4/17, or anytime (not tooooo early) on the 18th or 19th.

I also don’t know why it’s not showing my picture smh
