Hello All!

I will be in Jacksonville for a wedding and am looking for a buddy (or buddies) for a morning spring dive. I’ve never been before and have had recommendation’s for:

-Devil’s Den
-Blue Grotto
-Blue Springs State Park

These appear to not be too far at about 1.5-2 hours from JAX. Ive been diving for about a year and just finished my Advanced Certification. Thanks!

I’m busy all next weekend but next time you’re down this way put another note on the board and I’ll see if I’m available. It’s too bad you weren’t down here this weekend instead. A small group of us from my local meetup group is heading over to Orange Grove Sink at Peacock Springs State Park tomorrow. (South of Live Oak - about 1hr, 50min west of Jax) Also FYI - Blue Springs State Park near Orange City (west of Daytona Bch) will be closed to scuba/swimming until mid-March 2014 starting around Nov. 15th due to the annual manatee migration so if you want to dive there, do it soon.

Thanks geogator, Blue Springs State Park is where i would prefer to go but Ive got to find a buddy first. Will post again before my next visit, which is about every 3-6 months.
