Looking for divers to join 2 or 3 of us for up to 3 dives at Paradise Springs this Friday. I can get there as early as 9am with 1 or 2 other divers joining shortly thereafter. Cavern dive, but OW cert divers are allowed as there is a guide rope to follow. Help me with my bucket list item of 100 dives in a calendar year!

Possible, but not likely, will know by Thursday.....may have to work.......either way, need to help with that dive count, got some "gator gas" left. ;-)

I believe I can make it. I would love to join. I have over 60 logged dives, Nitrox, rescue, and deep certified.

David and Curtis, hopefully we can get more that 1 dive in before another gator shows up. Jim, it would be great to have another diver join up. Who else plans to be there by 9am and is anyone else up for 3 dives?

Just spoke with management at Paradise and told them we will be there by about 9am. At least 3, and possibly up to 5 divers. They are a CASH ONLY operation so no credit cards. They have rental equip if it’s needed: lights $10, tanks/air fills $8 each. So far we have 3 confirmed divers and 2 more possible/probable.. They open at 9am, but the gate will be open by 8:30am and I told them we should be there by 9am.
