Florida Diving advice

I need some Florida diving advice. I’m going to be spending the weekend in the Ft. Meyers area, but I can’t dive on the weekend. I will be flying into either Orlando or Miami and drive to Ft. Meyers. This opens the possibility of diving on say a Thursday or Friday before my weekend activities begin. In any of these cities are there Dive Boat operations that may be going out on a Thursday or a Friday? Google searching is turning up no good leads. Appreciate any insight.

The only diving in Orlando is in Disney’s aquarium, flying into MIA, FLL or PBI opens up all of SE Florida’s diving.
You don’t say which weekend, It’s been windy lately, offshore 4-5’ waves, 30’ viz and 72 degree water. I plan on being under BHB tomorrow and maybe Monday :)

There are dive shops in the Naples/Ft. Myers area. Best thing to do is Google them and call. If the ocean doesn’t allow for diving due to weather/temps, BHB is an awesome place to go. It would be a bit of a drive from Ft. Myers, but it’s a great dive and getting over 2 hours on an AL80 is icing on the cake.

Sorry, I mislead. I can stay and dive in the Miami area before driving to Ft. Meyers. Planning to do this possibly Thursday, March 31st. And I did some more googling in the Miami area and came up with two dive operations that run trips every day of the week, so I think I am set! Thanks for the input. If anyone has a favorite dive operation in the Miami area please still chime in. Always appreciate a good tip :-)
