Exploring and Diving in Florida Keys

Hello divers,

My name is Beata, I’m planning a trip to Florida keys from September 1st to 17th, and looking to meet new friends to dive with. I am PADI advanced open water certified with lots of other specialties up to Emergency and rescue, with a little over 200 dives in the log book. I love to dive, but take it very seriously. I also enjoy underwater photography. If you are a diver, and will be in the area in September, let me know, we can plan something.

Where do you dive in Houston? My daughter lives in Sugarland and I am planing a trip in August .

I live in Navarre Florida which is between Pensacola and Destin. I do a lot of diving here on wrecks as I am retired and can go anytime so if you are in this area give me a call. I have a boat so trips are easy.

Beata,

Timing is not quite right for me at this stage. Australia is a long way away.

I want to dive the Statue of Christ before I get too old so perhaps another time I would love to join in.



By the way I have had a look at some of your photos and you do a great job.Well done.

Ken

Beata (btw it’s a Polish name, isn’t it?),


Don’t forget to dive USS Vandenberg while in Key West. It’s a "must see", really.

Ken, Thank you for the comment on my photos, but i’m really quite a beginner at that. I am going to dive that site ( Christ of Abyss) one of the very first day there, and i’ll take pictures (hopefully won’t mess them up, since my camera now has several upgrades). Let me know if you will be coming to this part of the world. Florida is quite accessible to me, so i could probably make it there for a long weekend to dive.


Zielit, Beata is polish or maybe Italian name originally, but i was born in Russia and grew up here in US. Vandenberg is one of my destinations to see. Are you in Florida? Do you wanna join on few dives?

Thanks for the invite, but no I’m not a FL local (I’m from Canada, with polish background hence my "name question"). I’ll keep it in mind next time I’ll be going there.

I will be in the lower keys (big pine key) September 13th to the 20th. I am willing/able and looking forward to some diving while i am in the keys. I don’t have a boat(yet) but wouldn’t mind going out on one of the local charters to the reef or even better a local wreck dive. I do have a friend with a boat in marathon that may be able to take us out to the sombrero light house fora dive. I will also be down the keys the last week of October and again for thanksgiving. looking forward to some bubble time!!!
