Hi, I’m looking for dive/ photography buddies to possibly dive Texas oil rigs, or go to South Padre Island in the last weekend of July. Please let me know. I would like to stay local this time, and don’t mind sharing a high quality pictures :).

Happy diving.

I would love to take you out, but I’ll be diving in Panama City beach area the last week of July. I was out on the Fourth of July diving the rigs but I notice you were schedule to go to Tarpon Springs. I’m going to leave you with my number so we could communicate without checking the web site. Call me at 281-851-5700 Steven.

thanks Steven,

I know about Pirates Charter, but unfortunately, being a student, i can’t really afford 3 tank trip for the price requested, so i will have to pass. I will be diving in South Padre Jul. 27 and 28th, let me know if by any chance you can join. Also my number is 832-297-8400. Maybe we can talk sometime on weekend

Scubagirl, my best bet is port Aransas jetties. It’s a shore dive done at high tide. Corpus Christi occasionally have charters going out, but not these 2 weekends. South Padre Island is unreasonably expensive (i’m a grad student, so food and shelter are important too), almost to the point that it would be cheaper for me to fly to Cali or FL and dive 2 days, then go on a charter in Texas. if you want, there is a dive shop in Corpus that organize the jetties dive. i think it is on Saturday Jul 27 meeting on 6 am and 6 pm ( high tide).
