    Dive for week of 7/9 will be at Hollywood Beach. Arrive at 7:30 or before. We will be diving the rock pile off of Johnson Street.
    Take 95 to Hollywood Blvd east. Take A1A north to Indiana St. Make a right and go to the end. Take a left down the alley 2 blocks. You will see parking right in front of you. The few spaces to the right are the closest walking distance so those are the ones I am gonna try to get.
    Don't forget to bring quarters for the meters and a flag.
    Mike, Marvel, Scott- see ya then.
    Mike don't forget the pineapple, and if I still have fresh mangos, I'll bring some. yum!

    After the sucess of this dive, the inagural team of me, Scott, Mike and Marvel have decided to make this a weekly event. Thus the Hump Day Sunrise Dive is born!

    If you guys don't mind some company, we've got 3 from Toronto and 1 from Cleveland who'd love to join you. All I have to do is make sure the rest of the crew are awake in the wee hours!

    I'll be there! This time I hope Scott brings a computer - Marvel wants one and maybe he'll leave it behind lol

    Yes, I'll remember the pineapple and LOTS of quarters this time.

    Are booties required for the hike to the water or is barefoot ok?

    Yeah Yeah! Great.
    Posting on the board is the reason for all to join us! The more the merrier!
    Bring a flag and quarters. Meters are .25/15 minutes. Figure at least 1 1/2 hours.

    ROFLMAO! no comments, laughing too hard!
    Booties are not required. Walk is accross the boradwalk- pavement of 20 feet or so, then sand to the ocean.

    We'll be getting a flag/float Sunday afternoon. Where is the closest/best shop for tank/wt belt rentals?

    By the way - we're leaving the dry suits home - no worries about 50F water where you guys are!

    Really looking forward to diving with y'all

    I go to Coastal Marine Diving Supplies
    641 E. Dania Beach Blvd
    954-923-2388.
    The shop is not fancy, but Ed the owner, and Mike (when he's there) are locals who have been around forever. They are very knowlegable of the area, and the equipment is good. The shop is just a mile inland of the beach.
    There aren't any (that I know of in the Hollywood area) dive shops on the beach.

    If you have skins, bring them. There is some fire coral.
    Water temps are 84.

    Thanks for the info. We'll be diving in 3mm jump suits or shorties. I'll warn the rest of the guys about the fire coral.

    Looking forward to WARM water - outside my wetsuit. Hopefully I'll get some decent U/W shots with my Bonica.

    Jen & Scott - I just picked up tanks for tonight and tomorrow morning and Bill at Scuba School says we can have "rent one get next one free" tanks for our Wednesday morning dives starting next week. We just need to get the tanks back by noon. They're also interested in sponsoring a dive trip.

    They're at Oakland Park & A1A, so its very convenient for me. If you have any questions or think you can talk Bill into free refills instead for the tanks you own, give him a shout at 954-566-6344.

    Scott - I was thinking that maybe somebody might have returned your wetsuit, but haven't a clue as to where they'd turn it in. If you can think of anybody to call (city lost & found?) it might be worth a try.

    Jenny- I'll pick tanks up tomorrow for Wednesday morning. Are you going to be able to get one or are you all set?

    Did we move this up to 7 AM or is it still 7:30 AM?

    Did you call ahead so they'd know to make sure visability will be excellent?

    Please advise!

    I'm ok for the tanks. As far as the vis being excellent, it is a bit outa my hands, but if I put them together AND get on my knees, maybe my pleas will be heard! 7:30 is good, but I will try to make it a little earlier.

    Can we get a head count on the people coming tomorrow morning?

    I have a white Jeep Liberty and I'll put my dive flag on the roof (until we go in @ 7:45 AM sharp).

    If anybody wants my cell, please PM me.

    Yessss... Wednesday morning compressed air is the best, isn't it?

    The dive is pretty shallow, maybe to 20 feet. We will swim out and find the rocks which from what I am told cover an outlet pipe. Lots of life. Swimming farther east will yeild cement bricks layed down, like a road. I am sure there is an offical name, but we call it "The Yellow Brick Road." Bring along a flashlight, just in case.

    Jenny, THAT was an incredible shore dive - the best yet. Lost count of the eels (two different kinds), and the ramora trying to attach itself to you was probably a once-in-a-lifetime visual. Scorpions, **tons** of lobster, and of course those two little silvery bait-fishes that remained on Marvel's cute little butt for most of the dive.

    It's hard to believe that was a shore dive. Let's do a night dive there soon!
