Buddies wanted for Florida diving in November

I will be staying in Wauchula about an hour southwest of Tampa but centrally located so I can travel to either coast or even to the keys with sufficient notice. Looking to dive some reefs while I am there. Available most weekends.

Thanksgiving Day is for spending with Family and I have to work Monday thru Wednesday. When will you be arriving?

Blehhh!!! I’ll be in Clearwater on the 15th and ready to head to the keys probably late day on the 16th - so anytime after that. I will likely stay down there until the day after Thanksgiving, heading back that night after diving. My flight leaves out of Tampa on Saturday afternoon.

Rob could we do the 23rd then? Friday, the day after Thanksgiving? My flight doesn’t leave until 8 pm on Saturday so I can dive all day on Friday!

I have no idea where I’ll be yet... thinking Looe Key but nothing definitive yet. Definitely open for suggestions! Any of those days will work for me - maybe not too early on the 17th (not like 6 am anyway lol).

Sounds like a plan! :-) I’ll be about a 4 hour drive from the keys so will have to plan it out. Where will you be staying? Maybe I can bring my RV down for a few days...

I am close to MacDill AFB in Tampa and want to get in some diving. Have all my own gear except a tank. Want to dive springs, keys, boat and shore diving.
