New diver looking for buddies in the Charlotte, NC area, I call home. I am considering membership at PDRA to gain access to the Lake Norman Quarry, or Lake Jocassee and Hot Hole dive.

Or locals to North Florida, Devil’s Den, Blue Grotto, Ginnie Springs, Rainbow river, ect... I am about a 5-7 hour drive from most of those and am planning on making it several times a year.

Definitely man. Yeah with the travel restrictions I’m under right now (I’m active duty Army) I can’t do anything but go home and go to work. I will send you my contact info in a PM so when possible we can plan a dive up there at Jocassee.

I’ll be in North Florida next week looking to do some diving. Newer diver as well. Let me know. May 11th-22nd.

If I can make sometime during those two weeks work, I’ll give you a shout. I’ve got a new sidemount setup that I need to work on a few skills in leading up to my certification.

Bounacy, task loading, setup, all that fun stuff, so I need to get some time in the water with it, if I can find a buddy that wouldn’t mind hanging around underwater for more effort than just getting in the water.

I have the entire month of July off. I live in Georgia but I would be willing to go just about anywhere in the Southeast - Lake Jocassee, North Florida - whatever. My dive buddy is coming up on her 500th dive and I need to catch up!

Anyone diving tomorrow May 27th Wednesday, :)?

If the trip is still on... Corona stuff might get in the way. I might be in Bonaire during part of July. But, I have a few days of vacation left to burn. I’ve been interested to try and get to the springs during the work week to have better vis.

And, once the water warms up a little bit more, I am down to hit up Jocassee a bunch. I’ve heard it should be pretty comfortable in July?

I live in North Central FL and dive the springs if you’re interested.

I also live in Charlotte. I am always looking for a competent buddy to occasionally visit the quarries like PDRA or Fantasy Lake. Jocasse is on my list as well as things warm up. I just got back from Blue Grotto and Devil’s Den. I have only been diving a year but thru Rescue and going for a Cavern Diver course later in March.
