hi , i am a california freediver in pcb till the 19th... i was wondering if you had room for 1 more or could put me in touch with someone who does..i have gas money and elbow grease to offer. my cell phone is 5107508853
if you would like to hook up i am staying with friends on backbeach on the west end. anyway like i said i am im excited to get in the water.
i dove stingray pt. in PC yesterday and didnt see anything legal. real low tide..was going to get in at hathaway on the west side but with all the constuction and no ride i havent got up the heuvos to dive there alone yet. probably some current in the channel too.
just here to spear so ill go everyday till i leave.

Dude if you are desperate enough to try to dive the hathaway you deserve a ride. I've gotta work on Saturday and my Sunday is unclear. Some one hook this poor guy up. I work all next week as well during the week or I'd make sure you were taken care of. If you can resort to bubble blowing try tagging along on one of the Dive Locker's charter boats. They are 6-pack boats so you won't have to share with 20 others. Doubt that their insurance smiles on freedivers but you can ask. 850-230-8006 I'm pretty sure thats correct but I'd check. Best of luck. -Patrick

thanks, i responded to your pm before i read this. i still might dive hathaway. looks sketchy with all the construction.
i am scuba certified but did not bring my reg and bc. plus i really want to breathhold.
my max effective depth is 50-60' for 1:00+ ..
my best freedive is 73' for about 1:40
btw total dive time is roundtrip. so that only leaves 30-50 sec on bottom.
thanks alot. i will check with the dive locker about six packs.
does anyone want to share.?
earlier in the week they said it could be arranged but i would need to fill the extra spots. they also said that it was up to the captain to take a freediver or not but he would probably do it.

I might be able to hook you up with a ride next week. A friend's coming to town and bringing his boat. I also would like to do more freediving so this could work out.

headed home today. thanks alot everyone. while i did not get to go offshore due to scheduling and storms(we had a small boat and rookie owner) i met some cool ppl (not divers) and almost hooked up with the other local divers. unfortunatly i broke my teak gun this trip. used nokaoai new to me never killed a fish by my hands but i will shorten it and keep on. learned alot about florida and got to see lots of fish i have only read about/seen pitures of. i will be back and more organized next time. this trip was impromptu and more of a scouting mission anyway. now i have friends in town and an idea of how to get along. you know, champagne lifestyle beer income.
i will post fish pics and broken gun pics when i get home.
peace and safe hunting to you all.
oops, ya'll i mean.
