Work smurk...

I think you may have a fever and need to be in the water to cool off...

I may have to go down there and check that out. We were planning on staying above the thermocline becuse my buddy is diving wet. The last few times I have been out there it has been in the upper 40's below 25ft.

if it really is that cozy I don't think I want to know. That would make me kick myself harder for deciding to leave the gear at home.

If you want to come out I may have enough extra gear for you to use... Shoot me a PM if you are interested and I can try to put something together...

i don't believe they rent anything (not positive on that). And I believe they don't yet have their compressor up and running for fills. Again I aint been out there yet but thats what I remember hearing.

I do believe that he has some gear that you can rent, but I am not positive about that. No air fills though. There is one shop about 15 min away and another about 25 if you need to get tanks filled. One thing I am pretty sure he will rent is a few tanks. He does not have a ton, I think that he will rent out his personal tanks.

I have a season pass there so anytime you come up if I am available to dive I will meet up with ya... Now just remember that I work a lot of weekends... So my availability is fairly sketchy... I am always up for diving if I have the chance though...
