Instead of Eggs, let's find some LOBSTERS as season ends March 31..:(

You can hunt for pretty little pastel eggs on Sunday, Saturday let's get out there and get some Spiny Big Lobsters. Grab your easter basket, I mean gear, your snare, your tickle sticks, coolers (unless you want to subsidize the little store across the street ), bags, lunch/drinks along with 4 tanks and be ready for some very deep diving off Jacksonville.

Can bring your spearguns as well (there are some good eating fishes out there) and be ready to kill some Lionfish as they are there too and need to be eliminated.

Please remember that full payment will be due prior to RSVP deadline. Once deadline has been reached, person's that have not paid will be removed from the RSVP listing and will NOT be included in the final head count we give the Charter. If you do pay and you have to cancel last minute (past the RSVP Deadline) (unless another diver is willing to take your place) your money WILL NOT be refunded as we have already committed to your spot on the Charter.

$150.00 cash/check (must be received prior to RSVP deadline) or use payment button for PayPal (fee included and will not be refunded)

** Tanks not included** Will need to be Advanced/Nitrox for this trip, as the dives are[masked]'

We need to fill as many spots as we can and give the final head count to Captain Dan by RSVP deadline to get his OK on the trip. As I stated we need to fill all 12 spots.

If anyone is willing to host a Lobster Party for after the dive, let us know and we will post.

    I'm so bummed that I had to cancel at the last minute. A cold, which I really get just started to come on so I didn't think it would be very safe or enjoyable to push myself and go anyway. I'll be looking forward to next time. Hope you guys get lots of lobsters.

    What time to we have to be there? I thought Capt Dan said 6 am but this says 7.

    March 27, 2013

    • DeAnn

      Yes, I just confirmed and he wants to get out early so 6 am it is :)

    If this is a 4 tank dive then I need to get 3 more. Mike and DeAnn, could I rent some tanks from you or Captian Dan?

      Dan, we can bring you 3-80's with Nitrox for $10/each if that would work for you?

      March 25, 2013

      I found a couple of 100's so I only need one more tank. Want to make the most of this trip, the more air the better. Thanks.

    I have confirmed with Capt Dan and we have the needed divers (he had a few to make minimum). There is room for 5 more divers if you are not on this list and you want to come, call him directly (this will better ensure your spot), but let him know if you are part of Bubbles Up :)

    This sounds like fun, and yummy too. What gear/ equipment do you need to catch lobsters? I've never done it before but I can go buy whatever I need. Easter lobster sure sounds good!

    March 20, 2013

    • DeAnn

      Oh, yes, super yummy treat for Easter :) and so much fun finding them! You will need gloves (because they are spiny), a bag for putting them in (make sure easy to get into and easy to close up), tickle stick (to trick them into moving forward), a measuring gauge (so you know it's legal) and some people use the snares, but I haven't had the patience for it...YET, but they look easy enough. Most dive shops have kits, but you can buy separate as well.

    So it looks like I will be hosting the Lobster Party, so we had better get some good ones!

      I haven't posted that yet, but I will :) we will have to keep you guys focused on the lobsters this trip and save the Lion Fish for another time

      Have a Happy Easter with the family, we will be setting up monthly trips offshore Jax so there will be other opportunities :)

    Did Offshore raise their prices? I thought they were cheaper last year?
