    I'll be there next month and would like to know more about this. By muck diving, what kind of viz are you talking about? 5-10'? Can't-see-your-hand-in-front-of-your-face? Can you give more detailed info on this dive area and exactly where you enter and exit.

    Just outside of the dive lockers, where they moor the boats. Flop in and prowl under the pier for starters.

    Muck diving isn't so much a comment about viz, it's more the description and character of the bottom... and the very interesting critters that enjoy that niche environment. Lots of what they refer to as "odd shaped bottom dwellers". (not me, the animals and such!)

    You aren't going to get a lot of company from fellow guests, likely none. From the pier, looking West into the actual "lagoon" between mainside AKR and the Key- that itself is a great night dive- it's shallow and there's quite a lot of debris, which many creepy critters thrive upon. It's so shallow I have done some 2 hr BTs and came up only because I wore out my batteries on the camera strobe.

    Not good for first time night divers. No, not so much.

    As if I don't already have enough entertainment to catch up, *now* I'm gonna have to go read up on every post you've made on the board. Most informative set of posts I've ever read on a subject. And, I now must visit CCV. :) Thanks so much!
