Lets meet up and go Scuba Diving in the Florida Keys. We've talked about it, planned for it, now lets finally get down there and have some fun. This is Verterans day weekend, which makes the potential for a long weekend possible.
The Camping: Knights Key Campground. With bath facilities and a heated pool, this campground looks very nice. I plan on reserving a site on or near the water, and when we know how many members would like to go, we can reserve more sites. Sites are $50.00 per day. Google Jolly Roger Marathon and it comes right up.
The Dives: Lets explore Marathon's extensive reef system with TILDENS dive center. Tildens has several dive boats, equiped with all of the amenities we desire, and the expertise to make our dives fun. Two dives, two tank from 8:00 AM to 12:00 noon. With six divers, we can influence their schedule. They can take us to shallow reefs, deeper ones, and possible a shallow wreck or two. The cost of the dives is $65.00 if you own your own gear, tanks and weights. $80.00 if you need tanks and weights. $120.00 if you need all of the gear.
Itinerary: Arrive Friday afternoon, check in at Jolly Roger, set up camp. We can explore Marathon, go to Key West for dinner, or just hang out and relax at the pool in Marathon.
Saturday: Morning two dives with Tildens.
Afternoon: Relax at pool or go into Key West.
Sunday morning: Two dives with Tildens.
Sunday afternoon: check out and head home.
For those who may be off from work Monday, November 11th, please feel free to stay in the Keys longer, and head home at your descretion.
I will need a list of gear that you own, and will report to the Dive shop the needed gear. It is important that you bring your C card and log book if you have one.
Once we determine who will be joining us on this adventure, I will determine the cost for each person based on equipment needs, which of course will vary. If you would like to join us, please let me know right away.
About the cost, my thoughts are if we car pool down, split camp sites, this could be some of the best diving on a budget that I have ever done.
All Wavers of liability will be signed with the dive Charter.
