I am planning on being in Florida around the 2nd week in May for a visit to family in North Port, I would like to check out some of the local diving in the area if anyone has a recomendation for the area that would be great. I would really be interested in going on one of the shark tooth dives I read about a while back.

I would love to drive down to the keys but time does not allow it and that also kinda stops me from going to the East coast also.

The last thing is I am coming in on Saturday and leaving on the next Friday so any diving would be done during the week.

Hey KnightDiver, I don’t know what to suggest personally but I searched for ideas/comments on Divebuddy for you and saw a few forum topics that may help you out. After you read them, if you still have questions you can send a direct message to a member with it.. take care and enjoy your vacation!!

You do have time to dive the southeast like Pompano Beach or ft. lauderdale.

Its only a 2 hour drive from coast to coast. You can do the shark tooth dive in venice a couple of days then head over to my area of Florida. The keys diving is overrated and more money than most areas in Florida. If you like drift diving Palm beach is the place to go. If you want to speak with me personally, a florida native I can tell you and give you some numbers to call.
