Default Looking for semi regular dive buddy(s)

Hi - I'm looking for some buddies that want to scuba dive maybe once a week or more depending on schedules. I'm OW, Nitrox certified I'm doing TDI cavern and Intro to cave in about 2 months. I'm doing advanced open water this summer. I've been scuba diving since 2010. Any experience level is welcome and we can do any dives that you feel comfortable and have the skills to do. I have all of my own gear. You can contact me here (I don't check this much) or you can text me at 850-888-0707.

I'm in the same boat as you....moving here from PCB in a few months and one of the hardest things about the move is starting over....w/ trustworthy dive buddies.

As soon as I drag my boat over here it will be time to get serious, and lament why I'm leaving a place where I have 1000+ #'s to spearfish.

Let's hook up this summer for sure.

You should find what you are looking for but like spooney says, once it warms up again , ask again

Since it's too cold to dive (at least for me), I find myself tidying up things like my list of #'s and such. I'm new to the P'cola area and have only dove it a few times on charters but it sure seems like there are a TON of public numbers out here.

Here's a screenshot of just the public numbers I've been able to collate through public sources, mainly a thread on this forum.

Question for the group is: is any of this stuff worth it? There's everything from bridge rubble to pyramids and even some public numbers to reefs like the Timberholes etc.

What kind of range do most folks stick with when diving & spearfishing? Can you reasonably stay within 10 miles or do you need to go 20+ for good diving?

I sure looks bare out towards the east....or at least there aren't many public spots marked.

Thoughts?

Even a small pyramid can have a good size fish on it. It has been my experience that the closer to the pass (I.e. the more pressure from human activity) the more sharks you will find. That being said, there are several reefs in the 10-13 mile range.
The further you go, the better your chance at having the spot to yourself.
Just pick a route, dive your spots and explore.
Depending on the age of the number, storms may have moved it.
