Sure. Where do you have in mind? The area just south of Commercial (Datura st) has easy access and a shower. Parking meters there eat quarters (15 min per, I believe).

My GF lives a block off the beach at Datura. I might be up for one tank on Sunday morning. Wx is not looking too good for the entire weekend, so that will be determining factor.

Coming from south take 95 north exit Commercial and head east to A1A turn right south and your frist light turn left and your there.

Black-Gorrilla
08-24-2007, 19:41
thank you sir.

i guess 1 tank? it think having to walk to the car, changing the gear and walking back would be tireing... but im ok with that.
so you guys call it.
1or2?

Listen if you happen to find

1 large us divers knife with a orange handle
2. Tusa clear frame silicone mask

They are mine.

I've lost or left behind more stuff on and just off the beach there, enough to start a shop inventory. Those benches just love to hide stuff on you, beware they are as evil as the parking meters.

08-24-2007, 21:10

FyVe

FyVe

Black-Gorrilla

08-25-2007, 19:09
Remember to bring lots and lots of quarters, The parking meter dudes make thier rounds on the hour every hour. Sigh, I'm stuck up in NY right now or I'd be joining the group. That place has been my fav shore diving spot for years. Did the scuba beach cleanup there every year they had it. (the only time you can safely dive under the peir)

eyezz
08-25-2007, 20:24
When you get back from NY will plan a trip and go out again. We will keep an eye out for your gear.

Black-Gorrilla
08-26-2007, 05:52
well... I am here... weather looks soso but doable... small amounts of waves...

08-26-2007, 10:42
we are doing a shore dive there next weekend (labor day weekend)

Black-Gorrilla
08-26-2007, 15:07
i might just join you guys.... it was very nice, lots of life... but you gotta kind of clean as you go when you're near the peer (lots of line)

eyezz
08-26-2007, 19:51

I would be down for a Dania dive this coming weekend. My weeks are now consumed with classes but I would be able to do a Sat or Sun beach dive. ---Actually lets make it for bugs, I am due for some tails.:smilie40:

08-26-2007, 22:33

Hey Black Gorrilla,

you would need to get a saltwater license and add the lobster on that it's cheap.

Hey y'all. I just wanted to say that I had a good time Sunday. I enjoyed meeting all of you. As for the Dania Beach dive, count me in (as long as work does not interfere). C U on the water soon ;-)

FyVe
08-27-2007, 23:23
great dive. Really enjoyed my puffer fish experience!
Thanks a lot Issac for being our tour guide.

I will definitely go back to that spot, very nice reefs, good life, and best of all only a couple yards out!

So, I got a lot of strange looks when I tried to show people the lump of coal that I found out there Sunday. The interesting thing to think about is, how did the coal get there? Most likely it came from the hold of one of the many shipwrecks. That was a little piece of history, just rolling around in the surge.

As a side note; there are several sources of "natural" wrecks along the Florida Coast - bad weather, poor navigation, and wartime sinkings by German U-Boats! Since most of us (divers) were not around in 1941-44. It is hard for some to imagine that the U-Boats were patrolling right off Ft. Lauderdale beach (and all along the East coast). There are numerous shipwrecks in 60-200 fsw. Freighters traveling blacked out at night sometimes ran ito each other. There was also the risk of being silhouetted against the city lights of downtown. Even with blackout rules in affect there was still too much light coming from land.

So, what was the story behind the lump of coal?

Black-Gorrilla
08-28-2007, 16:48
Amanda was looking at you as if you had a octopus stuck to your face... trying to figure out what you wrote in the sand...
i clearly saw that it said "coal" and was like ... "what is that doing here?"

when you showed my brother, you wrote out coal on your hand... he had no idea what you spelled... and was about to write back "what" on his hands... and then both of you would looked very confused.

the coal was nice, but that red shirt, and the 1 shoe i founds was nicer :)
nothing like the big white underwear though... (that still lies there. btw)

Black-Gorrilla
08-28-2007, 19:39
by the way... what day do you guys wanna dive? i have a 3 day weekend (monday off) and have 2 friends that want to go to Naples this weekend.. so i might do that... but i still wanna dive if possible.
