Coming to Marathon Key for a week. 8/20/17 through 8/27/17. Would love to find a buddy or buddies to dive with that week. Probably going to rent a boat for a few days so I don’t mind if we dive from it or go out on a charter. I am open to any dive sites at any of the Keys but am staying in Marathon. My wife doesn’t dive so would prefer mostly AM dives. I am AOW with nitrox.

If you rent a boat to dive, I don’t think you are allowed to leave about unattended as you dive. Pretty sure it’s against the law.

From mammothbuck: Pretty sure it’s against the law.

Although not recommended - I am fairly confident that this is not a law.

How would it be enforced?
Who would enforce it given the number of boaters... So if you have a bunch of swimmers on a boat - you are saying someone has to stay on the boat while everyone else goes swimming? I dont think so.....

I’ll shoot you an email before the days end.

I should have been more detailed in my original post. My wife won’t dive but she will get on the boat! LOL
