What is the longest ride you have taken in a car to go diving? And returned home the same day.
I'm spoiled living in South Florida, so I don't travel too far for one day. However, I have a dive buddy from Jacksonville (about 4, 4 1/2 hours one way) who comes down here to dive for the day and goes home that evening. Others drive a couple hours one way and return home the same day. Guess it all depends on how good the dive is and if you don't mind the driving.
Well here in Tallahassee, I'm about 30 minutes to a sink hole. I'm about an hour and fifteen minutes to the coast. I'm 2 hours to St. George or Panama City and 3 hours to Destin and I've been to them all.
The problem in our area is there's only a few charters. There's two in the St. Marks/St. George area. There's a couple in PC and Destin. So usually I'll drive the 2-3 hours pulling a boat. Then we'll take the boat out and get a couple dives and drive the 2-3 hours back.
