Diving Trip - May 15, 2008, 11:50 AM

Here's a diving opportunity for all you c-card carrying .net divers:

Whisper and I want to take the Advanced Open Water course offered by Tarpoon Dive Center Miami, FL. We are flexible on when we can go, but would like to go sometime the end of July or beg of August (for a long weekend.) The course is $325, and includes six (6!) dives. Now, even if you have taken the Adv. Diver Course, you could still do the dives with us, and it may even be cheaper....

PLUS!! For all you divers on a tight budget:

My friend has a house in Miami (it's about 45 mins from Key Largo). He can have about 6 people stay at his home for free... so first come, first serve. So, all you'll have to pay for is the flight, food and diving.....

Hmmm. Sounds interesting. I have family in Miami Beach, so I would have a place to stay as well. Do you think it makes sense to have a few more dives under my belt before this? I only have 4 two-tank dives (8 logged dives) so far, including my open water certification dives.

I wouldn't think it matters.....I knew a guy that took his OW, Adv. Diver, and Rescue Diver training, all within two weeks.

Dave, I was two weeks out of my Open Water certification dives when I did this: (picture whoring time):




so i think you'll be fine, especially if other experienced divers go.

During the first dive Michelle and I ever took (a few years ago now), we got to swim with about 30 sharks! Pretty interesting, to say the least! Here are a few pix from the occasion.

Of course the Nudists can come, too! Should I reserve two spots?

I don't think they will do those dives together, but it doesn't hurt to ask. Even so you can schedule the open water and go on a different boat. We can then meet up afterwards. I know it sounds lonely, but maybe other .netters or your wife will join you.

Would love to go... but we are gone the first week of June to Deal's Gap, and with N8 starting his new job, probably can't get the time off.

Depending on how many divers you have total and how many instructors the shop sends out with the group a shop can do both certs on the same dive. One group stays shallower then the other. Then the afternoon everyone is diving together. This of course limits the advanced folks to what the basic folks can do.
