How far will you drive to do a shore dive (1 tank per dive, about 30 to 40 feet of water). Just for the sake of consistancy assume 2 dives during the day, and that you will be driving home after the second dive.
I don't like to have to drive any further than I have to. On avg I have to drive at least an hour to get to any site, avg drive would be 1 1/2 hr drive one way but have made some 3 hr drives. One of the funnest dives I made was the furthest away all to dive in a river that was only 10-15 deep.
...down to Cape Hatteras, NC and Morehead City, NC. VA Beach is about 3.5 hours from DC and we sometimes do that more than once a month. Guess it just depends on how bad you want to do it... FWIW, I have never regretted the drives since the diving is amazing down there...
"I'm Warren Miller and about 50 years ago, back in 1946 when I was a senior in college, I went skiing on the second weekend in November. On Monday morning, I went back and dropped out of school. Since then, I've never looked back." - Warren Miller
MikeFerrara once bubbled... We often drive 7 hours to Missouri to do a single dive. A couple of weeks ago we drove 15 hours to north Florida to do two dives. We're doing that again this weekend. If there are caves I'll drive!
Don't forget to check the cave reports.... it sounds like most are blown out right now...
