    With all the "what's the best" threads of late, I think this one might be easier to tackle since most of our sites are good.

    I'll get the ball rolling with two sites I'm not at all fond of:

    Jules Lodge - I dove here twice for training dives but I doubt I'd ever be desparate enough to go back.

    The 30' Balls in Pompano: in a word: boring!

    Fort Lauderdale Caves, which are not caves, rather a junk-laden stretch of reef (thank you drunken Florida fisherman)
    Anything that ends in "reef," for that matter - to include the over-rated molasses reef
    Qualman tugs - just shells of what looks to be rowboats
    Copenhagen - an archaeological preserve reduced to a debris field thanks to WWII navy pilots

    The Wreck of the Regina (Sugar Barge) in Bradenton Beach. Totally lame. Just a rusty hunk of metal the size of a VW.

    Jacksonville down through Vero Beach; all that coastline, nothing worth diving.

    The same thing went through my mind when I read that Double D :wink:

    That's good those WW2 wrecks are all a secret and the only good bugging is in the Keys :14:

    There actually is some awesome diving from Jax on down south - wrecks, mega critters, and steroided lobsters. You just have better luck looking for a needle in a haystack.

    But when you do find a lobster off of Daytona, it will weigh as much as your limit of Keys lobsters.
