    Dean's Dive Shop is the "good" local shop.
    That being said, there are no viable day charters I'm aware of running out of Fort Myers. I dove in Pompano Beach yesterday and Dean's had a class on boat there (140 miles from Fort Myers).

    The closest boats are up in Nokomis/Venice. Be aware, getting to 100' of water ain't cheap on the west coast of Florida.

    Our club is Fort Lauderdale-based (you posted in our club forum), so I'm going to ask a Mod to move this to the Florida Conch forum where more people will see it.

    Joy, you may want to consider Venice if the seas are not to bad and the winds
    are blowing out. We have had above average water clarity the last four weeks or so.
    There are many different locations they dive from. I like Service Club and S. Brohard
    for the parking, showers, and restrooms. Parking does seem best down
    at S. Brohard. A lot of divers like the structure and fossil beds off of Alhambra which is
    south of venice main beach and north of Service Club. Alhambra however is just a
    dead end type street with no facilities and the parking is on the side of road not to far from
    the water. My plans for the weekend are undecided but if I do get up that way I will be
    sure to post.

    I've been out to a few of those reefs, usually ARC Towers, Boxcar, or Blandas. My favorite was Boxcar, which is about 18 miles off Boca Grande, in 70' of water. There's about a 60% chance that we'll be going out on that Saturday on my boat. PM me the week before, we may just have an extra spot!
