Florida Keys trip July 2017

This year we are doing something a little different that has been requested. The Wreck Trek Safari.  We are doing this at the beginning of trip so those that don’t want to do it can come a few days later. There is an extra cost for this and we have to have 8 people interested in order to book it.  The plan for Safari would be to fly in on July 10th.  We would board boat on the morning of July 11th and get back late afternoon July 12th.  Cost is $699pp.  Includes Air tanks and weights.  Nitrox is not included in price, for all 6 dives it would be $48. We would need to book a hotel room for July 10th.  We will arrange that once we know we have enough people going.

Here is a description of the Wrek Trek Safari I took from their website.

Dive from Key Largo to Key West and back on a 2 day/6 wreck excursion. You’ll board one of our 46’ custom Newton boats and dive your way down to Key West, stopping at the wrecks of the Eagle, Thunderbolt, Adolphus Busch, and ending with the Hoyt S. Vandenberg. Then stay one night in a hotel in Key West and dive your way back with stops at the Vandenberg (because it’s so big that one dive just isn’t enough!), Cayman Salvager, Thunderbolt, or explore some less frequented reefs. You tell us where you’d like to stop!

For everyone else who is not doing Safari, you will arrive on July 12th  We will dive July 13-16 and come home on July 17th. Book a later flight home so you can do afternoon dives day before.
We dive with Florida Keys dive center.
The trip consists of 2 wreck dives in the morning and 2 reef dives in afternoon.  Wreck dives are between 70-100Ft  Reef dives are 20-30ft.
You do not have to do wreck dives if you are not comfortable diving deep. You can just sign up for reef dives in the afternoon.  We will also try to do a night dive on one of the nights if we have enough interest.
Wreck dives do required you to be Advanced certified
Cost for all 16 dives is $618
Cost for just reef dives $280
Night dive $76
Cost includes weights and air tanks.
We suggest nitrox for wrecks, it is not required.  Nitrox for all wreck dives cost $64.
Rental gear available, contact us for pricing.

All costs  for diving are based on at least 8 people going on trip which gives us group rate.
We stay at Ocean pointe condos.   Cost is based on 4 people in a room.  Total cost is $335pp for a 5 night stay.  These condos have 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms a full kitchen and living area.  Beautiful pool and a small beach.
Please contact us if you are planning on coming on this trip.   Let us know what dives you will be doing and if you are interested in doing  the Wrek Trek Safari. Also let us know if you will be using nitrox.
We only ask $200 deposit.  Rest will be due 2 months before trip.
Everyone arranges their own flights.  Dan & I will let everyone know what flights we are on once we book.  We try to arrive close together so we can all share car rental costs.  You can fly into Miami or Ft Lauderdale.  Dan and I will be flying down on July 10th to do Safari.
 We eat breakfast at condos, pack lunches for boats and go out for dinner at night.
If you are interested in this trip email and let us know what diving you will be doing.  Please let us know if you are interested in doing Wrek Trek Safari.
