    Addis Charters Spring Diving

    This weekend Addis Charters invaded NW Florida, and the flow at the springs was up as the Floridan Aquifer shed a tear from the abuse it received during the visit. On Saturday at the Young Menís Christian Associationís Camp Indian springs Captain Addis arrived spouting his usual profanity about the lack of facilities, the hot weather, and tough diving conditions (he had to dive open circuit). While I did not witness the events as they unfolded in the stadium sized passages of Indian Springs; I can confirm that as of this writing the visibility in Indian can be measured with outstretched arms.
    To prevent a repeat of Saturdayís events and due to the greatly reduced visibility at Indian, Sundayís dive was relocated to Jackson Blue Spring. It was the shared opinion from all divers that the parks no alcohol, profanity, and firearms policy might create an atmosphere that could contain the cantankerous Captain Addis. However, things did not get off to a good start. The good captain was thinking that his gear was on solid ground verses a pitching vessel and felt it unnecessary to properly secure it. This resulted in not just one but two instances of doubles meet floor. Each incident produced an extended outburst of the perils and inferiority of open circuit equipment. Once in the water more leaks were discovered and then quickly ignored. So there we went spewing bubbles to scooter up the gold line to the Deloachís Delight tunnel. As the last one in a three man team I was subjected to Captain Addisís scooter piloting skills with the enormous SS scoot that has to making up for inadequacies in other areas. I was feeling reckless and threw caution to the wind ducked my head and scootered on through the silt. Our leader being ahead of the silt was able to see the seriousness of our situation, there were a lot of bubbles from Captain Addisís gear, and he wisely turned the dive at 3600 feet just prior to our planned destination. Seeing the turn signal I wheeled around and ran for the exit. Back at deco Captain Addis, annoyed that his computer was giving him a 20 foot stop, decided that no deco was safer than following some silly instrument, and quickly abandoned us to the fates of nitrogen. When we finally surfaced we were showered with insults for turning the dive early. With that Captain Addis opened his bottle of liquor, pulled out his concealed firearm fired several shots into the air, cursed ďI will never cave dive with you ********** again, and fled the scene before law enforcement could respond. With all that I am looking forward to the future when I can head south and take a trip with Addis Charters to brave the open seas of the Atlantic.
    Dive Safe,
    Mark

    SEE - I TOLD YOU SO!!!!

    If people would just pay more attention to my posts, this kind of dangerous activity could be avoided. It is just a matter of time before Capt. Addis gets someone hurt badly or pisses them off to the point that they kill him.

    BTW, when will he be back? I need to go diving again.

    No mention of aggravated sexual battery on an animal anywhere in that trip report. Odd. Doesn't sound like the Captain Addis I know.

    If self-preservation is a trait you possess, you may want to sleep on that decision first!

    Mel, To dive at Indian springs on CCR is tough, because it is a guided dive and to do it CCR, the guide and you must be on the same rebreather and the guide must be an instructor on that rebreather, and you both must have at least 100 cave dives on that rebreather. it is tough to find someone available that meets all these requirements

    when Indian is clear, it is an awesome dive, well worth doing even on OC
