Forecast in the MG, and Tarpon-Suwannee is terrible this weekend so the trip is canceled. North of the Suwannee is very workable however at 2'-4' on Sat, and 2'-3' on Sun. Need a couple shooters for a single overnighter to leave early Sat AM, and return Sun when it's too dark to dive or we are out of nitrox. Multiple drops on the five tanks any size you bring, cost is $280pp.

We will be diving up to 60 nm offshore from 60-100 fsw. Last week the vis was air clear. The inshore waters off Steinhatchee produce the same quantity of fish as many of our MG trips. Do a search for Jolly Rogers on the Fla Gulfcoast section to see old trip reports.

Call me ASAP 813-477-1170. First come, first served.

Armando,

I'm seeing the same thing, the very possible blowout and moderate easterly winds.

This trip is full. In fact it is fuller than a limp wristed pansy boy's butt-crack after passing out from taking too many roofies (Rohypnol for all you pharmacists out there) in the bathroom of a gay leather bar.
