Default Night Dive

Hooked up with Rich from MBT and went out to Navarre beach fishing pier last night for an awesome night dive...Seas were nice 1-2's and the air temp wasn't that bad either, the water was cold at about 62 but really not that bad. The vis was pretty good except out near the end were it went to about 3-5ft. The current was kicking out of the SE and you would get swept off the pier pretty quick at the surface, but the gulf really comes to life at night we saw schools of squid, hardtails, a pufferfish, shrimp, tons of sandollars, numerous flounder from about 14" to the size of your thumbnail, couple of guys saw a robinfish and every piling was covered with anemones and urchins that look like blooms at night it was beautiful and when you turn out your light, it is scary dark...you can't see s^%t but is really cool... if you swish your hands you can see all the bioluminescense(sp) light up. Just lying on the surface is nice looking up at the stars with the waves is awesome! Anyway for those of you who haven't done a night dive you don't know what your missing the bottom is totally different at night, I highly recommend it....I can't wait to do the Oriskany at night and another thanks to Rich and the guys at MBT, you guys rock I will be posting our vortex springsFiasco that we made today later on....it was an adventure to say the least:doh

Matt, I had a great time diving with you guys. We'll have to do it again sometime soon. During the summer, we try to do a night dive every week. We all get together, normally on a Tuesday nights, and head out to the beach, or Navarre, or the Whiskey wreck, etc.If for some reason the weather doesn't cooperate we find an alternate location to "dive" such as Flounders, Hooters, etc. It's really just an excuse to dive, drink some beer, and eat some wings, but we have a good time. We should be starting regular night dives in the next month or so. I'll keep you updated.

Night dives are awsome. Last year a bunch of Scubaboarder's would do a Fri night Dive - Drink , on Pcola Beach. Always good times.

Ive been diving since 1988 and have accepted the fact that most divers can put down their fair share of booze.

I dont think any of the PFF's need much of an excuse to Dive and have a few???????

Yeah Clay, before we left the shop Rich kinda chuckled and said, "we should call Clay and trick him into diving with us tonight!" We're gonna drag your drunk ass out one night and throw you in the water! But yep, it was fun...walked off the beach for two dives and the walked across the parking lot to Cocodrie's for a couple of beers! My kind of Friday night! :letsdrink Oh, 'fisherman', there were eight of us that dove.
