Default Re-intro to diving

I was certified 2.5 years ago and haven't been able to dive much. Looking for advice on shallow dive sites in SWFL or keys to get back into it. TY

I don't believe there's a lot to see on the west coast, in fact every weekend we have divers from the west coast on our boats.

If you don't want to go out on a charter boat then I would suggest shore diving from Lauderdale by the Sea, the reef is extremely close to the beach. There's also a couple of dive shops there to rent you gear if you need it.

The only catch with gear rental or charter boat diving is some shops might say you'll need a refresher course since it has been awhile.

Also, if you do decide to drive to the east coast make sure you check the weather, mainly the winds and seas. For example, today we have 20kts out of the east with 2'-4', occasionally 5' seas, these conditions are not all that good for shore or boat dives.

Hope this helps.

Check out the second link then, they are truly a one stop shop in the area. The shop, pool, tank fill and boats are all in one location and stress free.
