My name is Shane from Australia and I’m currently backpacking around the world and one of the main things on this trip that i wanted to do was dive in a spring in Florida.

I have 1000s of hours of dive time as that is what i do for work (commercial fishing) However it is all on hooker gear so my tank prac may be a bit rusty. Im a qualified Advanced open water PADI diver.

Im looking to buddy up with one or more people as my two mates that I’m with are not divers.

Drop me a line if your heading out that way or know of somebody that might be keen.

I wouldn’t have a problem going alone as thats how i work all the time but I’m not too sure if they will allow me and id naturally prefer a buddy for safety reasons and somebody else to share the experience with.

Thanks a million

Gday Shane,

I’m just moving from NYC to PA (USA) at the end of this month so I may not be completely ready for the trip. But if it gets to be the 5th of October and you still don’t have anyone give me a shout and I’ll do my best go get down there. I don’t speak Australian but I do understand it. It’d be great to dive with you.

Hope you guys can make it because my schedule took a turn for the worse and almost no chance I can make it.
