Default Ft Pickens

Has anyone been to Ft. Pickens lately? Wife wants to make a shore dive before going to the Keys. Vis or jellys?

Did 2 40min + dives out there about 2 weeks ago Sunday. Viz was < 20 but acceptable @/around high tide. Didn't see any suspended jellies.

Plan your dive as close to high tide as you can. This will give you the clearest water and least amount of current.

Thanks...that is the plan. From past experience I know the current get pretty swift at the jetties.

If I'm diving two tanks (which is the norm for), I plan first tank about 30/45 before high, second 30/45 after ..
Even then it can get pick up quick
Pickens is an excellent dive when the stars align...
