I'm just outside Savannah, Georgia and looking for suggestions for places I can go diving within a "reasonable" distance, where "reasonable" is somewhat vague.
I'm fairly new to diving, started a a little over a year ago, Nitrox and AOW PADI certs, 81 dives to date. All training and diving done in the Honduras, (primarily boat and drop dives, with a smaller number of shore dives, and a very small number of night and deep dives). That translates to "I'm used to warm open water", not interested in caverns at this time, don't know about springs.
Which also means that I'm looking South - Florida rather than South Carolina for example, and thinking April/May/... rather than January/February...
Reading through the Florida and Dixie Divers forums, as well as doing a number of searches, it seems as though the closest place that seems like what I'm looking for is Key Largo; (Amoray and Rainbow Reef) - but that's a good 8 hour drive each way.
Given that I'd like to do extended diving weekends - that's potentially a bit too far; too much time in the truck and not enough in the water.
