    Hello,
    I am looking at driving down to visit some family and would like to know what is the opportunity to do some diving there. Are there any n charters that go out ? How about inland diving?

    Thank you for any info
    Matt

    I have done December / January with Discovery. A few things:

    a. You need to fill the boat and for Discovery I believe it is 6 people while with Olympus I am told that they need 8. So you will have to book the date in advance and there will be many divers who are looking for that golden opportunity to get wet. They will join you.

    b. Ocean conditions are less reliable and chances of trip not happening are higher. It is a roll of dice and be mentally prepared that it may not happen.

    c. On my last few dives that were out of season, the water was greener instead of its usual blue and vis was less. We still saw sharks but marine life did not seem as abundant. It still beats diving in a quarry.

    Let me know when you plan on going and I may become one of those 6 - 8 divers that you will need to make this trip happen.
