    You know I am! I love night dives at the Jetties. Come on folks, let's put a good ScubaBoard Jetty dive together. High tide at 4.44 PM, that means the sun will go down while we dive. Post the particulars Yoda, and lets see if we can stir up some interest. If not, it won't be the first time you and I have done a Jetty dive with just us'ens!

    Sounds good to me. I work until 1500, I should be able to make it there by 1630. Do you have a dive flag?

    I know Yoda has one, and I also have one. I will be dragging my camera out there so I won't carry a flag. If someone else wants to carry one, and they don't have one I will bring mine.

    I'll probably hit the parking area at about 3:30 pm and load the sand yacht up with gear. I'll be carting the stuff across the sand and then gear up at the water (I may get into my wet suit before the walk if it's as chilly as it has been). I'll have a flag for us to use.

    I don't think there will be too many people there so finding each other shouldn't be hard. If we are in the water by 5 pm we should have the best chance at getting out before any current change.

    I love the avatar....I have to get me some of those shades. Actually, if we do the dive Saturday I might need you to zap me so I won't remember freezing my nuptials off!

    I should be able to meet you around 3:30 PM. I will gear up at the truck. Haven't done the jetty walk for a few months...should be fun.

    Hello, I hope this dive is still on. I have the whole day off Monday, so, I will be leaving Pensacola around 2:15 to 2:30 with plans to arrive at the parking spot at 3:30. Again, if anyone wants to ride along, they are welcome.

    As far as Yoda and I are concerned it is still a GO! Look forward to seeing you there. I will be in a red Dodge truck with a tank rack in the back. What will you be driving? Good thing about January diving at the jetties is, we shouldn't have to fight to hard for a parking space.

    I'm still planning to dive. Black Jeep will be mine but I may be on the way to the jetty to get set up.

    GFWB, I too am out of practice in walking the jetty walk. That's why I'm starting at 3:30 - lots of time to rest and wish for a dune buggy :D.

    Depends on how cold natured you are. My last dive was 62 degrees and I had just my 3mm plus hood-vest. Water will be much warmer by the time you get here.
