We’re getting off this rock in a few days and heading to another rock. We’ve been planning to take a trip for a while now but the 2017 hurricane season had other plans for us. We already have the flight credit and the time off of work which we either use or lose so we’re, Read More
Irma swept most of the sand from the reefs leaving me worried about my favorite sand dwellers. After 6 hours underwater I finally found a single yellow head jawfish living in a rocky hole on French Reef. Pre-Irma, I could easily find 20 of them in an hour on French so their numbers are, Read More
Irma took almost all of the sand that used to surround the reefs with her. So what happened to the critters who make their home in the sand? It’s a great question and one I don’t have an answer to… yet. Let’s take a look at what we’ve been able to find so far.

It’s time for another exploratory trip. Since we’re staying in the Keys another year we’ll be keeping our jobs another year which means money for travel. We figured we should take advantage of that and check out a few more potential places. In less than a month we’ll be exploring another potential future home,, Read More

I had the chance to see the film Chasing Coral at our local government center in Key Largo just moments after it was released last week. Being a diving community I wasn’t surprised to see a packed house for the world premiere. Sure, I could have streamed it at home on my couch, it’s on Netflix,, Read More

Ahhhh it’s summer. Lazy days spent in the water (yes, we spend them IN the water here), cold drinks, sunsets, & swinging in the hammock. Are you thinking about coming to the Florida Keys this summer and wondering what it’s like this time of year? Well, it’s hot & humid. Very hot. And the sun, Read More
One of the biggest decisions you’ll make in planning a dive trip is who to dive with. This one choice can make or break your trip. If you dive every day like we did you’ll be spending a lot of time with your choice, 5-6 hours a day, so you really need to get this right. There are, Read More
