    Hi. My wife and I recently moved to the Tampa Bay area. We are just getting settled and want to do some diving. Obviously, dive shops are a dime a dozen around here. We own most of our own equipment and are looking for divers and dive shops that can point us in the direction of some decent shore diving. I am still getting acclimated to equalizing my ears and it takes me forever to go down an anchor line (and I hate holding people up). So, until I get better, a gradual shore dive is best for us. Surely, there is enough wildlife around that this should not be a problem. Just a note, once at 22 feet (magic number), I have less trouble (and yes, I understand the most drastic change is in the first 20 feet).

    Any other thoughts on Florida diving would be appreciated too.

    Anyway, any suggestions? Thanks.

    Bear

    Venice beach has potential for what you are asking. Do a search for sharks teeth and you will find everything you want to know including directions to some of the better areas to hunt them.
