    Thanks for the info about the dive charters. I have been looking at all three of those you mentioned and they do look very tech friendly! I have done a double dip rec dive on the Speigel before, but I am really looking forward to explore it with longer bottom times. Also from what I have seen, the Pompano area does seem to be 'the place' to Tech dive in SE Florida, lots of fun looking wrecks!

    Pompano Dive Center is the most tech friendly shop in the area. :thumb:

    If you're on a rec boat running rec profiles, talk to the captain, be the first to splash and the last one up. As long as you're not holding up the trip you should be fine.

    The Hydro Atlantic is high on my wish list as soon as my training is complete. I've always heard of it but never really looked into it as it was "tech" and out of my divable range. It looks amazing though! A spectacular wreck.

    Even on the recreational side they are great. The DMs are helpful when you want/need it, and stay out of the way when you don't.
