Afternoon Shallow Dive Wreck and Reef

THIS IS A GREAT DIVE FOR NEW DIVERS AND THOSE WHO HAVEN'T BEEN IN THE WATER IN A WHILE!

 

 

We will dive a true shipwreck (The USS Copenhagen) with Max depth of 25 fsw then dive a natural reef with max depth of 20 fsw. This is a new and larger boat (max = 20 divers) so there will be plenty of room for snorkelers and divers!

ATTENTION: LOBSTER SEASON WILL BE OPEN!

MEET AT THE DOCK NO LATER THAN 12:30 PM We have an 1 PM departure.

PRICE: $55 per diver (does not include any equipment or tips for dive master).

PARKING: $5 per vehicle

GEAR: If you need to rent gear other than tanks, you should rent from your local dive shop or choose one of our sponsors.

TANKS: may be rented from Parrot Island (make request with reservation) or at FORCE E Scuba (4 blocks away from the boat dock)

Suggested hotel: For those who want to drive down on Friday night, The Comfort Inn Deerfield Beach gives special rates for Scuba Divers diving with Parrot Island.

    Overall it was an awesome day. Great group of people that have serious fun diving. The Copenhagen and shallow reef were full of life....the pics were amazing.

    Thank you Allen & Lorna for putting this dive together. I wish we could have made the third and fourth dives as planned but we just were in no condition!! We look forward to the next one though!

    A special thank you to Red for saving the day by loaning me the pressure gauge which allowed me to complete the first two dives! I really appreciate it!

      So Allen, any chance you could post a trip like this shallow wreck for Thurs 8/22 that would give directions of where I go and who to contact (and maybe others can go so I have a dive buddy!)? Thanks!

    Sincerely regret missing this dive. Business emergency arose today. Hope something like this "new divers" trip will be scheduled again in the future.

    I assume this is a 1-tank dive. Right? (Too bad it's not a shore dive... I could say I scuba'ed to all the way to Copenhagen.)

      Stina, this is a "2 tank" dive. I'm sorry if I didn't make that clear. Both dives will be in aprox. 20 fsw. Sorry it took so long to reply, I was out of town.

    • Allen_&_Lorna

      We are working on trying to put a group dive the next morning (Sunday 8/18).

    This will be my first dive with the group. Do I need to make a separate reservation with Parrot Island SCUBA?

    July 11, 2013

    • Allen_&_Lorna

      Normally, you would need to make your own reservations, however this trip was put together just for our club. so your RSVP will count as your reservation. In other words, you have a seat.
