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.
This weekend I decided to test the new camera and housing out at Peacock Springs State Park.
Since I had never done a manatee tour, I thought it would be a fun weekend getaway. Kaitlin and I booked reservations with Florida Manatee Tours in Crystal River, FL. Because the weather had been warmer recently, the manatees were hanging out in the bay, where visibility is low, and weren’t in the spring area… Continue reading Fun with Manatees at Crystal River
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

Circuits aren’t necessarily all that appealing to me, I’ve only done one of them outside of training before today, but Allen has been talking this one up to me for a… Continue reading Mainland and Sweet Surprise Circuit @ Ginnie Springs
Tonight I finally had the opportunity to go on a photo shoot with Becky of Liquid Productions LLC, something I had wanted to do for a long time. Andreas was my buddy for the shoot, which worked well, as we had tons of time with a single stage and back gas since we’ve both dove… Continue reading Photo Shoot with Becky Kagan Schott of Liquid Productions LLC
This weekend we were off to 5 Hole, an extensive cave system at Suwannee River State Park. A few of us had been asked to help make a video to show the park staff what a beautiful system they’re protecting. Since this site is permit only, it’s very pristine, but lines aren’t kept up to… Continue reading 5 Hole, Suwannee River State Park
8am sharp my alarm clock disrupted my sleep pattern, and it was time to clean the car out to make room for dive gear! Today was the first weekend that Jug Hole would be open to cave diving for the season! My dive here almost a year ago was one of my first side mount… Continue reading Jug Hole – Well worth the walk!
