Wreck Diving in Deerfield Beach!

 

Hi Gang,

Join us for a weekend of Wreck and Reef Diving in Deerfield Beach!

We are diving with Dixie Divers on the comfortable 45' "Lady Go Diver" in beautiful Deerfield Beach (15 minutes south of Pompano, FL).

Saturday June 29th, 2013 - Two Tank Dive

Please arrive at Dixie Divers Shop, 455 South Federal HWY (US-1), Deerfield Beach no later than 12:30 p.m. for registration. The "Lady Go Diver" is a short distance from the Dive Shop and departs promptly at  1:30 p.m. for our first dive site.

Our first drop will be on the RSB-1, A 160-foot US Tender was sunk in 120 feet of water the bow facing North on May 14, 1994. There are large holes in the hold making this an easy wreck to penetrate. With the deck at 90 feet and the sand at 110 feet you can do this dive on air if you wish, but you'll get a lot more bottom time on Nitrox i.e. 16 minutes on air and 29 minutes on EANx36. After our surface interval, we will be doing a leisurely drift dive along the beautiful reefs of Deerfield Beach.

Sunday June 30th, 2013 - Two Tank Dive

Arrive at Dixie Divers Shop no later than 7:30 a.m. for registration. The Boat departs at 8:30 a.m. Our plan for the first dive is to experience The United Caribbean, a 147 foot steel cargo ship resting in 70 feet of water. The United Caribbean was used for illegal smuggling of people and drugs until the crew beached the vessel in 1993 so the passengers could escape to shore.  Ten people died trying to swim to shore. This an excellent site for penetration on the wheel house and engine room for qualified divers.

The second dive will be a  drift dive along the reefs of Deerfield Beach.

Cost:

Only $149.00 + tanks

(Air & Nitrox Tanks are available for rent at Dixie Divers in Deerfield Beach)

    Nick, I agree with you for sure on the crew's lack of a briefing.

    Great dives. The wrecks were awesome... Good visibility, lots of life. The local dive shop (Dixie) is loaded with more inventory and gear than I've seen before, but really, poorly managed and disorganized. They're inefficient and slow.
    The boat was excellent, although crowded. The crew was nice, but not very thorough, or safety conscious. Seemed odd that there was no dive briefing or directional guidance.
