Default Diving Pensacola beach reef this Saturday

Just wanted to see if anyone else would be interested in going. I'd like to meet some new people and hopefully make some new dive buddies. Hopefully weather will be good and visibility wont be 5 ft like it has been.

Also I posted in the spearfishing section as I plan on bringing my spear gun along and would really like to meet fellow spearos.

What's the depth there? I'd be interested in going and could bring some other buddies, but we're just freedivers at the moment.

The depth is about 12-15 feet and I've free dove it before. Your more than welcome to come and I'd love to meet more free divers as well, I actually do both so I don't mind switching it up.

The reef is about two miles down the road from portfino on the Pensacola beach. It's also legal to bring your speargun as its not a "public" beach as it has no lifeguard on duty and there is an area to offload your gear and get it into the water. I've talked with plenty of Pensacola spearos and they all say that it's legal to spear there.

Looking at my financial situation I'll more than likely be free diving this trip as well. Hopefully next pay check I can finally afford to rent gear and go for a dive out there or maybe even fort Pickens.
