Florida keys trip


Club is going on a trip to the Florida Keys.
Dates we are going are July 29-Aug 3
Everyone responsible for booking their own flights.  Car rentals can be shared. Will figure that out once we know who all is going.  You can fly into Ft Lauderdale or Miami. 
We are staying at Ocean pointe condos. They are 2 bedroom, 1 bedroom king bed, 2nd bedroom 2 twins. There is also a pull out couch, if anyone is willing to sleep on that it would bring cost down. That would put 5 in a room.
Condos have 2 full bathrooms and a full Kitchen.  Ocean view.  Typically we eat breakfast in room.  Pack lunch to eat between dives and go out for dinner.  There is also a very nice big pool and a small beach
We are diving with florida keys dive center.
Here is break down of dives
July 30th-2 reef dives in am, 2 wreck dives in afternoon (last day of mini season in keys, thats why reefs in am and wrecks in afternoon)
July 31-2 wreck dives in am, 2 reef dives in afternoon
Aug 1-2 wreck dives in am, 2 reef dives
Aug 2-wreck/reef in am (diving done, pool time while waiting 24 hr before flight to off gas)
Total dives 14
You are not required to do all dives.  Let me know if you are just doing reef dives and I will figure cost up for you.
Cost for all dives $465.50 (cost includes wt’s and tanks)
Total cost for hotel per person $302.50
Total cost $768.00 (this covers lodging and dives).  Cost is figured on 4 people per room, dive cost are figured on at least 7 people going using air. Cost goes up if we have less.
Nitrox $7 more a dive 
Total cost of nitrox for all wrecks is $49( nitrox is not required)
Anyone doing wreck dives must have their advanced certification.  We have the whole summer to get it done.
If you have a spouse or significant other who doesn’t dive they are welcome to come. They would just pay room cost.
We will need a deposit of $150 per person.  Remaining amount will be due on July 1st.  Deposit due upon signing up for trip.  Contact us at if you would like to sign up for trip 
Trip can be cancelled up till 3 weeks before trip. Money will be refunded
Remember we need at least 7 people to sign up or diving will cost more.  Also we need at least 4 people per room or room cost goes up
We had a great time last year.  Great diving, great group.
Please email me or call if you would like to sign up for trip or have any questions.
