Spring Fling to Jump start the diving season

Many of us have already dusted off our equipment and gotten wet, some of us never dried out, but all of us want to dive, dive, dive.....

Let's have a meet and greet at the Springs and review some skills, test out any new gear, or just have fun with our fellow dive buddies.

We will bring veggie dogs and burgers to share and if everyone else brings something, buns, chips, slaw, then we can cook out after and socialize....and of course plan our next outing.

 

This is a state park so the fee is only $6.00 a carload.  You do need to bring your certification card as will need to check in at the front gate.  We will hopefully have the list for Bubbles Up started...if not start it up :)

    I know springs are kinda lack luster compared to reefs sometimes, but I would love to see lots of these types of dives too... cheap, local, good visibility, and lots of people showing up... and best of all underwater... sounds like a great time... sad I missed this one!

    I am curious on how many people showed?? I met a new friend on the cruise from Jax, and he also dives, his name is Michael, and should be joining the group soon. Thanks in advance :)

      Ricky, I just updated the number to reflect who did come. We had a great turn out to this event...it tends to vary from one to another :) Looking forward to more members - thanks for getting it out there.

      I like you guys already, and I have not even met any of you. Just to see and read the comments on here daily is just great!!!! I have been telling everyone I know that dives to "get on bubbles up" LOL

    It's always a fun time hanging out and diving with the group and Manatee is a great State park. Kudos on the marinade Matt - now to try some other variations next.

    The water was pretty clear today. The level was pretty high in Catfish too. It was a good dive.

    • DeAnn

      Up to you guys, but Michael and I don't eat meat so I don't mind feeding the vegetarians in the group. I think Matt had mentioned something about Steak marinade :)
