Looking for dive buddies in the Venice area. I'm not too into Shark toothing but will go just to be underwater. Wow i feel like im typing out a personals add.... well i do like long walks on the beach and romantic dinners :eyebrow: . Let me know if anyone wants to get wet.

    Hey Welcome to the Board.

    Check out the Greater Tampa subforum...lots of people post shore dives in Venice/Bradenton there as well as boat trips out of St. Pete's.

    So get out and dive!! I went from only doing a few dives a month with rental gear to something like 150 in the first year after buying my own gear - there is a certain sense of freeing yourself to go whenever you want, choose whatever charter or location you want (so long as you can find a buddy), etc, once you own your own gear.

    If you want to meet some SB folks to start up buddying with, there is a get together at the beach at the end of Alhambra late June in the Trips section.
