View Full Version : deep wrecks off tavernier
05-13-2004, 11:32 AM
i live in tavernier and am looking for someone who would like to go in on doing some of the deep wrecks around here. some splitting of some of the costs and making of some money selling the fish. the wrecks are from 140 to 220. i also do the shallow wrecks as well(duane, bibb, even a few barges).

I have dove many of the deeper wrecks, both in the Gulf and Atlantic .. heads-up, deeper doesn't always mean more fish.
Also, a word of caution. Diving deeper in the Atlantic, as a general rule, can be significantly more challenging due to Gulf Stream currents. The Gulf is like a big swimming pool (as compared to the east coast)! I would strongly recommend you perform several exploratory/fmiliarization dives on any deep wreck in the Atlantic before you drag along a speargun that adds to your task load. Also, >130fsw implies a mix rating, and if you don't have one, then you should get one, as you are beginning the dive with a serious handicap.

I live in Miami & dive the Keys mostly. Check me out at the SBO. I have been considering getting some deeper diving training/gear/ experience. My boat would be a good platform for this. (It is supposed to be fixed by this Tuesday.) Also, aue-mike is tops at this stuff & dives all the time. He also knows where most of the deep wrecks are & would likely join in.

MarkZ is also familiar with those wrecks and has been writing about diving them for few years now.He probly has a link to his website in his profile. www.thedecostop.com has a lot of deep wreck divers and several that spearfish.
