Hey Dave,

I dived the Indian and Banana Rivers (just near Patrick Airforce Base) in Cocoa Beach, whilst living there in '95. Just some 'fun' with mates - checking out the Manatees and nearly getting killed by boat props. Brackish and smelt like shit, but hey you can't smell under water, right?

Feel free to post and look forward to you anserwing questions on your part of the diving world.

Cheers,

<font color='#0000FF'>Hi Bren, sorry I dont dive the rivers,just once to see the manatees. All my diving local is in the Gulf of Mexico, just a five min drive. Dived a new wreck (sank on purpose two months ago) last week and droped into a shoal of Jew fish I stoped counting at 17 another diver said she counted 23, what a site. July it's across to the east coast for a couple of days diving but my next big one is Oct the wife and I are of to Papua New Guinea,Oz and the coral sea, I will never be satisfied with the Gulf of Mexico again, Ha well into every life a little s--t must fall.
All the best David

Hi David! Welcome!
I've dived with the Manatees (Crystal River), on the artificial reefs at Ft lauderdale, in the Keys (Key Largo and in the gulf west of Key West, near the Marquesas) and out of West Palm Beach. I rate West Palm Beach highest. If you haven't dived there, give it a try. The gulfstream comes close to land there and you have a god chance of seeing sharks and pelagics, as well as turtles.

<font color='#0000FF'>Thanks for the welcome john, I will be diving at Boynton beach much the same as West Palm ie the gulf stream. We are using a charter called splash down divers a very good outfit a lot of people from the west coast use them. The last time we went for a weekend they called the dives off as there where 4-5 ft waves, on our last day a group called pro dive dived in 3-4 we passed on it I dont need to dive that bad. Geting in and diving is no problem but geting out is another story I have seen a few people get the timeing wrong and been hit by the swimm platform fortunately no serious injuries. My dive experiences North and south Ireland , Plymouth , Cyprous , Bahamas , Aruba , Florida , Cozumel , Costa Rica and Maui. All the best keep diving. David

<font color='#000080'>Keep working on her...

I always said I would not dive in cold water but there really is something about it and the missus has been known to get in and pootle around at times.

In fact I am ashamed to admit that when I got back from my last warm water diving holiday I could not wait to get back into our cold waters.

Welcome to the boards.
