New in town and newly certified. Looking for a local buddy. I own all of my own equipment except tanks. I am in school during the week but I am free after 4PM every day and every day all day on weekends. Will drive north, south, east, or west. I’m ready. Let’s go.

It’s a shame you’ll need to drive so much to find diving :) Even the free shore diving in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea is great!

Well, I’ll have to do a little driving either way, as I am currently living in Weston.

The shore diving around here is nice. I like swimming out to the white floats south of the atlantic pier. There is a ledge out there that is fantastic. Be careful with the boat traffic.

I am heading to Blue Heron Bridge today. High tide is 3:31 pm.

Welcome to the wonderful world of diving! Sounds like you are already hooked...can’t blame you at all. Have you emailed members in your area directly? When I was planning a trip, I did a search on here for divers in the area and sent them each an email, almost all of them responded and I ended up finding some great new dive buddies.

Also, there is a meetup group in the Ft. Lauderdale area and they dive all the time (in fact someone is off for the Summer and looking for buddies)...check em out at http://www.meetup.com/goldcoastscuba/, great group of divers!

Good luck and when we are back over in the area I will give you a shout!

Hey I am in the Davie - Fort Lauderdale area. If you want to do a weekend dive let me know. I am really into boat diving but I am willing to do shore dives also. Oh and welcome to Florida!
