    The most important thing I can do is return you to your loved one in the same condition or better than they sent you to me. Sometimes that gets in the way of fun.

    I am diving the next two days with two different se florida dm's. As a diver from northern nj maybe I can provide a second opinion. Can't make any promises but I am expecting safe professional and even fun dms.

    Good luck with the weather. I dove a few times out of wpb last week. Dove the ana Cecilia which was neat. The current was ripping and saw a few bottlenose above the wheelhouse.

    Regarding the dm's, they were very professional helpful and friendly. Not a single complaint at all. They were attentive and helpful on the boat when needed and a good presence under water. They carried gear and tanks from the shop to the boat (I carried my own but that's just me ) and back at the end. Good briefings and knowledge of the sites.

    You gotta come on some the spearfishing boats in Florida. Divers will start trash talking your equipment while you are still standing in the parking lot. But don't let that bother you, we'll teach you how to push that tiny 10" fish you caught so close to the camera lens it will look like a world record that you had an epic battle to put it on ice. You'll be snorting and crying from tears of laughter by the time you get off the boat, but you'll have some made some great new friends too !!

    Who did you dive with? My last few trips down there I've had the good fortune to dive off a private boat but, I do like diving with JDC and Narcosis. Scuba Adventures has sold their business, but the new owner seems to be maintaining the same dive opportunities (baited shark dives for example).
