<DIV>Nice photos. I like 'Grove plaque photo the best.</DIV>
<DIV></DIV>
<DIV></DIV>
<DIV></DIV>
<DIV>I was in Key Largo with a buddy for a mini dive trip this past March. All I can say is that it was outstanding diving.</DIV>
<DIV></DIV>
<DIV>
<DIV>We saw TONS of 'cuda and spotted eels. six foot green moray swimming in theopen, between large outcroppings of reef.Couple of turtles, eagle rays, southern sting rays, and millions of fish.</DIV>
<DIV></DIV>
<DIV>Didn't see a single shark the whole trip.</DIV>
<DIV></DIV></DIV>
<DIV>Largo is great. Deep Wrecks like the 'Grove, and lots of fun, shallow (30') reefs. The wreck sitting in 40' of water (what the name?) is interesting too. Great night dive there too.</DIV>
<DIV></DIV>
<DIV>On the boat at 7:30am.Two dives in the morning, eat lunch at the cafe next to the dive shop, then two dives in the afternoon, back to the dock, then out for a night dive.Dinner at 7 or 8pm. Mahi and Key Lime pie!</DIV>
<DIV></DIV>
<DIV>Yeah, the reefs are not "pristine-untouched by man", but they're in pretty good shape. I didn't see anybody standing on them or pushing off of them. </DIV>
<DIV></DIV>
<DIV>In short, I'd like to go back for another five or six days of diving.</DIV>
<DIV></DIV>
<DIV>Oh, and the price was right too. We self-arranged for adive "package", and were paying about $40 for a two-tank trip. We tipped the boat captain(s) pretty well, and were the only divers on teh boat at times. </DIV>
<DIV>
<DIV>Private charter baby.... very nice.</DIV>
<DIV></DIV></DIV>
<DIV>Friggin hotel room cost more than the diving.... need to find a cheaper hotel next time.</DIV>
<DIV></DIV>
<DIV>Good times.</DIV>

I do like the 'Rock Beauty' pic too.

If you listen to "Kokomo" by the Beach Boys, it's somewhere between the Bahamas and Montego. smileys/smiley4.gif
