I will be flying down to Florida on Sunday October 18, 2015 to take my AOW class at The Blue Grotto in Williston. If all goes well, I’m hoping to at least get in another dive that Wednesday, October 21 with SantaFeSandy if all goes well. Also, if anyone else wants to join in, please let us know. We haven’t got any definite plans as of yet but we will come up with a definite dive site before then.

Sounds like a great time. Congrats on doing your AOW.

Wish I could,..... I won’t be in the area until after DEMA is over on Nov.7- 11th.

That’s a ways off, still, but I might be interested in joining you guys. I’ll keep an eye out for your updates on DB. Thanks!

Too early for me to schedule, but if this turns into a little get-together, I just might be interested.

Divetech in Grand Cayman offers AOW with a Scooter dive, Wreck dive on the USS Kittiwake, Night dive with white/blue lights and deep wall dive on the shear walls of Grand Cayman. Maybe you would be interested in trying out "side mount diving" or "no bubble diving". Divetech is a true Advanced Dive Shop with options no other dive shop can offer.

That is great information Jay! I will have to remember that for another time. As for this trip, it is something I have had it in the works for a few months already. And because of having prepaid everything, most of which is non-refundable, I can’t back out of my plans.

American Pro Diving - Does the DPV Dive as part of the AOW as well. I had Philip as my Instructor for AOW and did the deep drive at the Blue Grotto.. Had a lot of fun with my Week at American Pro Diving, one of the best shops in Florida that I have been involved with so far.
