    Trip Report Diving 10/11/2021 with Niuhi

    The day dawned a little overcast. The forecast called for 0% precipitation for an offshore trip with a full boat in Pensacola. Air temps were in the upper 70s and a little humid. Arrived at the boat at 7am ready to go offshore. A little bumpy near the pass caused us to take a little longer...

    Niuhi has moved back to their slip at Southwind Marina, which is still undergoing repairs to damage caused by Hurricane Sally last year. Since my 8/23 trip didn't fill up, and was cancelled, I was given an option on a spot on the Saturday 2-tank midshore trip. I left New Orleans at 5:30 in...

    Pensacola Vis/Condtions?

    Hey all, has anybody been out in the Orange Beach/Pensacola area 9 miles or so. Last trip on 7/12 found really snotty conditions from top to bottom and limited vis on the mid-shore sites. I'm expecting about the same for this coming weekend, but would like a recent vis report.

    Whiskey Wreck like you've never seen it, or Get your A$$ to Gulf Shores!

    Drove over to Gulf shores from Perdido Key this afternoon to check out conditions at the Whiskey Wreck since Isaac. Passing over the perdido pass bridge earlier in the day showed clear, calm water near the beach, and the wreck was calling. I splashed a little before 3:30 pm after verifying the...

    Trip Report 11/07/2012 Mid-shore with Niuhi...

    Since I couldn't get any buy-in for a 10/6 trip to the Trysler Grounds, I booked one of the last spots on Niuhi's 10/7 midshore trip. The dawn broke chilly-in the low 60's, and a north breeze at 10-15mph kept things interesting all day. Waves near shore to 5 miles out were 1-2, then built to...

    REEF OBA First Impressions

    After diving the Whiskey wreck on Sunday, stopped off to get the LP72 filled with air. Lucky thing I wasn't looking for nitrox, because I was told that my tanks needed to be O2 cleaned for a nitrox fill (even with cascade fills). The attendant said he'd never seen 2200+ psi 72's before. Shop...

    Whiskey wreck, Gulf Shores, Al 7/1

    I had planned to drag my nephew over at 6am, but caught a late post from Theresa about an 8:15 meet-up. Since I was driving the "Creeper Van" (white cargo van with no windows), I parked across the street to facilitate my departure. Left the nephew behind with a wicked sore throat. Geared up...

    Whiskey Wreck June 23?

    Anybody up for the Whiskey Wreck or Ft. Pickens on June 23? It was a little rough this past weekend. I'm hoping the SE winds will have moved the sand bar a bit. I'd like to get there before the Jet Ski Concession sets up their lane over the wreck. Maybe I can push them further East with a...
