Not much to say...just moved to the Tampa area a little over a month ago. First cert'd in '82 (only dove a few times in the FL panhandle then) and just did it again, with my 14-year-old son this time, last month. We've done a little spring, beach and Gulf diving around here and took a short trip to Key Largo for a few dives.

justross -- we went out with Tanks-A-Lot (Clearwater) -- no drama, safe, out and back, but we only hit two shallow dives; Masthead and Veterans reefs.

Hi Matt! Welcome to the board :-) I spent 18 years in Orlando. Lot's of good diving within easy driving distance of you :-)

I live in Palm Harbor... a great charter you can look into is Narcosis Dive Center in Tarpon Springs. The owner is Capt. Joyce. Is is a little lady with a lot of fire in her... Her charters run out all over the place. I even think they do middle grounds trips. Good Peeps though.

Also there is a more local forum at Spearfishing Planet - Powered by vBulletin (http://www.spearfishingplanet.com) that could steer you to more places out of St.Petersburg.

Happy diving and keep me informed on how it goes. Welcome to the board and to the area.
