    I will be in Pensacola the week of June 21st and would like to do a couple days of diving, including the Oriskany. I'm not accustomed to how diving operations work in that area; do you schedule through a shop and then they set you up with a charter, or do you go through the charters directly? It looks like tanks and weights are not included on the boats, and you would have to rent them through a shop?
    Thanks.

    You could do either. Depending on where you're staying, I could recommend a shop or a charter operator. I am scheduled to dive July 21 with Niuhi mid-shore.

    @JimboIL -- How was your trip? I've mainly done Caribbean diving with some quarry dives also. I'm looking at Pensacola as one of the closest places to me to drive and dive in warm salt water, so I'd be interested to hear about it.

    I got blown out on my trip. Offshore was 4-6.
