Tropical Storm Debby:
Looks like the first little storm of the season has moved east of us.
In her wake and to the dismay of the cave diving community she has flooded cave country and closed some major roads in northeast Florida.
As far as the Gulf beaches go, we are currently dealing with low viz on the beach due to the backwash from the storm surge.  We only expect this to last a few more days.
Offshore conditions look great.
As the water warms up it gets "hot" in more ways than one.  Here come the jellies.  If you don't like spicy dives check out these new 1mm long sleeved shirts and full suits.

Become a PADI Sidemount Diver/Instructor/Trainer

Sidemount diving enables a unique way of buoyancy control resulting in a more streamlined profile that reduces drag making finning and moving through the water easier and more efficient. Offers a greater comfort level as sidemount equipment and harness can be custom fit to each individual, accommodating divers of all shapes and sizes. Great for divers with any disabilities, as you carry the cylinder(s) separate from your harness to the water. Whilst within the water you would then attach your cylinders and weights, making the entries and exits to dive sites much easier. Safer option in terms of air management as you have an easier access to your cylinder valve(s), first stage(s) and alternate regulator should a problem arise. One harness and BCD does it all. This statement is now true as the same sidemount equipment you use, can be used for more advanced types of diving i.e wreck, technical and cave diving."

Sample Schedule
Day 1 Sidemount Equipment Orientation, Confined Water Dives
Day 2 Openwater Dives 1-3
