Are there still US based liveaboards running? There used to be a couple that would go to Dry Tortugas and some on the West Coast to kelp forests. Id love to know if there are any liveaboard boats still running.

Cheers -

CS

I'm leaving on the Dolphin Dream from West Palm on March 11 for a week of diving in Tiger Beach and Bimini Book a Shark Diving live-aboard trip with the Dolphin Dream Team

I did the FL Wreck Trek on the Spree out of Key West in 2015. I would have loved to take it to the Dry Tortugas or Cuba, but @Wookie sold it in 2016:(

The Juliet leaves from Miami much of the year Juliet Sailing and Diving Scuba Liveaboard Dive boat

Channel Islands Expeditions is running the Truth and the Vision Channel Island Expeditions I believe there are others in CA

Fling Charters out of Freeport Texas goes to the Flower Gardens Banks. We are booked for March trip because I wanted to see the Hammer head sharks. Learned from reading the many posts here (using the Search feature) that I have a 30% chance of getting out in Spring/ Fall. Still wanna try. :coffee:

@txdamselfish - Did you make it to the Flower Gardens Bank? Wondering what the LOB is like and how the diving was - water temp, current...?
Thanks!

@Titatom No, I got cold feet. :sharkattack: After watching the Zoo Crew - July 2020 and brandon seibert July/ Aug 2020 videos, I wanted to wait for warmer water and get a couple more dives in at some quarries/ lakes to make the most of the Texas Caribbean - M/V Fling.
