    My programmer buddy David just finished his scuba class work and wants to head to the Keys for his open water dives. I'm trying to figure out which part of the Keys we should visit, and once we have that narrowed down pick a dive resort to stay at. So, which section of the Keys? Key West? Middle Keys? And do you have any resort or other recommendations? Money’s not a big deal but I would prefer a nice relaxing beach / dive resort that doesn’t cost a fortune.

    I was thinking about Key West, as it appears I can get a direct flight. But we may rent a car, so Marathon isn't out of the question. I can't find any info on Knights though. :(

    But here's another question - will anybody at the resort believe that my buddy and I aren't homos? :shock:

    If your going to the keys theres a restarunt that you have to go to for me. its called the Flamingo they have some of the best food i've ever eaten, and yet the place was all most deserted its saddening actually. Its on Garden Cove Drive on Key Largo. And if you head a few minutes northeast of there you get to Ocean Reef, check it out if you can get past the gate.

    I wish I knew more about Scuba Diving. Key West has a big crowd for it though, a lot of scuba shops / attractions. Anywho, if you stop by Miami, say hi to Crackpipe and I

    Never been, but I hear Key West is almost like it's own nation. People love it.

    one of my friends says that he talked to some local dive shops and they said the reefs in the west palm beacha area will rival anything in the world. the *big ocean stream/current thing* gets real close to florida there so the water is always nice and fresh. You can get a direct flight into there or miami, plus its only 2-3 hours from melbourne and and the 50 my friend is getting 8)

    Key West is just filled with cubans, tourists, and old people with leathery skin.
