I’m thinking of taking a week off in Florida for Thanksgiving and would like diving recommendations.

Where to dive (general locations)?
Airport to fly into?
Boat trips?
Dive shops to use or avoid?
Shore diving?
Expected conditions, water temp, surf, current, etc?
specific dive sites?

General diving is fine, A couple of Wreck dive would be fun. (rec limits please)

Lots of places to dive here. Deep wrecks east coast. Shallow wrecks west coast.lotta wrecks by Pensacola. Caves and springs all over north of tampa. Reefs and ledges down in the wrecks. Dosent really matter were u go down here theres diving to be done. How deep or shallow do you want to dive? Wrecks ,reefs,springs?

Are you coming to the Keys? It would help to know where in Florida you want to go or is it open for you?

Flying into Ft Laud or Miami Int is best for Miami or Florida Keys diving...Miami has more "recreational depth" wrecks than the Keys I admit.

BTW no shore diving in the Keys!
