LOL-looks like I'm going to be taking him over to Panama City Diving. Hard to convince my wife we should drive 2X as far.

What are the water temps out there in say 50' of water? I'm hoping he doesn't get too cold. Planning to take him the weekend of 2/22 or 2/29 depending on weather.

You will need a full wetsuit and a hooded vest or a hood, nothing less.

What I'm hearing is I can spend a couple hundred bucks on some new gear and give him a marginal (at best) first time in the gulf LOL.

We hit the pool last night for him to work through some of his skills again and he did well.

My wife doesn't want to go very far so if I can get him in the springs next week we will do that to finish the certification. If not I think we will just push it off until the summer.

First time in gulf just rent the suit. And what you are doing with a new diver by going to springs to certify and then wait until summer is the best thing. You don't want to introduce him to. The worse conditions that soon.

Donít know how big he is, but make sure the wetsuits fits correctly. It needs to be tight with no space. An ill fitting wetsuit will not keep him warm, and will be very frustrating to move and swim in.
