Today I decided to go diving with Phil Craiger on a 3 tank dive offered by Jupiter Dive Center. This was by far the best dive I’ve ever done out of Jupiter when it comes to wildlife spotting. Let’s see, we saw Turtles Goliath Grouper Marlins Bull Shark Black Tip Reef Shark Nurse Shark Many… Continue reading Great Day Diving in Jupiter, FL
Everyone knows it– the Tulum and Akumal areas of Mexico are a cave diver’s dream. I’ve wanted to go to dive in the cenotes since I first got intro certified back in 2007, but for whatever reason never managed the trip. For convenience, we stayed at Villas De Rosa, which is privately owned by Tony… Continue reading First time Cave Diving in Mexico
To test my new FLX Extreme, Philip and I decided to head to Ginnie Springs, so that he could play with his new camera and housing as well. I won’t say much about this one, as the photos speak for themselves.
Recently I was invited by Marc Blackwood and Chris Hersch to attend a dive on the Spectre, which was one of the best dive boats I’ve been on. JetBlue currently offers a direct flight MCO->LGB, which was about 30 minutes from Marc’s house, so things worked out and it was an easy non-rev flight for… Continue reading Anacapa Island, Channel Islands National Park, California
This weekend I decided to test the new camera and housing out at Peacock Springs State Park.
After a late night drive down to Fort Lauderdale, we woke up early to stop by Brownies dive shop to get my doubles filled, then headed to the dock, where we met up with Bill Mee, George Irvine, Matt Cain and Dan Volker for some recreational scooter dives. For our first dive, we headed out… Continue reading Diving off the Fort Lauderdale, FL coast
We decided to stay local at the Best Western the night before so that Heather and Brian could hit the road quickly, as they had a very long drive ahead of them, and it was nearly 3 hours back to Orlando for me. Up at 7am, we were able to grab snacks for breakfast from… Continue reading My first time at Eagles Nest
Having resisted the temptation for several months now, I finally decided to venture beyond the old end of line at Ginnie Springs and see the new section. For those of you who have been living in the dark for the past two years (or don’t cave dive), the “New Ginnie” refers to a newly explored… Continue reading Seeing what all the fuss is about…the “New Ginnie”
Today Andreas and I headed off to Ichetucknee Springs State Park to dive Jug Hole. Since this cave has a few restrictions, we had to dive side mount. Andreas brought his camera along and got a few good photos, which I’ll try to post up here later. We were hoping to explore a few going… Continue reading Jug Hole – A cave too short…
After a few weeks out of the water (drysuit zipper was being replaced), it was time to get some cave diving in! I had been talking with Heather about a NAUI Tech 1 course, and had both agreed to meet up for a familiarization dive with each other before class since we hadn’t dove together,… Continue reading Peacock Springs – The Crypt
