I will be traveling to Oldsmar FL for business. While I’m there, I figured, why not get in some diving? :) Would anyone be able to recommend a good dive organization. I am a responsible experienced diver who is into safety, but not into "hand holding.


Thanks all!

You can use the member search page to find dive centers and instructors near there:

Use the distance drop down and specify 25 miles, then enter the city and state.

You can do the same thing in the dive sites search page. The Florida Aquarium is near there where you can dive with sharks.
