    Tired of the HYDRO? Bored of the LOWRANCE? Then try this on for size...

    For those looking for something different, I am looking to dive several new sites off Miami - many of which are rarely, if ever, dived. Quite a few of these were recently "rediscovered" during a remote sensing survey, and likely consist of vessels deployed as artificial reefs in the 1960s and 1970s. Depths are 180-300+.
    We would be diving off a 36-foot long dive boat out of Haulover Inlet and would need at least six divers to make a trip. Cost is $80.
    To start it off I am thinking of the well-known CRUZ DEL SUR (240 fsw) and not well-known USCGC LOTUS (220 fsw) for the first weekend (to get familiar with the operator), which will likely be November 19-20 if the weather cooperates. If not, then we just push back until we get good weather.
    Anyone interested?
    Cheers,
    Mike

    Mike - not sure if you made the trip but if you have something similar planned in the next few months I'd be game.

    Thx

    Right now the problem is not having enough divers, but having a six-pack boat available for technical (or any) dive charters in the Key Biscayne or Haulover Inlet areas. There are a few larger boats, but they are asking too much money or rather, would require too many divers to make it a viable option.

    Would be willing to pay a bit more for the RIGHT dive to make it happen
