    I was hoping to stay about a week in Florida and wanted to do some dives. A mixture of shore, night, boat dives. So I was wondering where should I start looking? (I've only been to the Key Largo area in the past but there is no shore dives there.)

    What would you suggest? I absolutely love night/evening dives and shore night dives would be my preference.

    There some decent shore dives in the fort lauderdale / lauderdale by the sea area. And a plethora of boats... Key largo is definitely nice, down in FLL we use American Dream and Scubatyme as boats, definitely a lot to see.

    Pretty much from the north end of Pompano Beach all the way down through Hollywood will provide some good shore diving. Don't forget Blue Heron Bridge in Riviera Beach !!

    Would West Palm Beach be ok? Or is it too north from FLL? I can get a Courtyard stay at $59 a night at WPB!
