ack by popular demand. When the club went this past August (1999) the boat caught more than their limit, so we ate lobster on the boat. For those of you that are not familiar with this trip, here are a few details. We will be going to some of the best game- producing reefs in Florida. The waters surrounding the Dry Tortugas National Park, is 70 miles west of Key West. We will be on the Ultimate Get- away which is a live-a-board that is not considered a luxury boat and there’s not much privacy. But it offers solid, basic accommo- dations and three squares a day while cruising the reefs.
night dives. We’ll stop for one or two more dives on the way home without hunting, and return between 4:00pm and 5:00pm, Monday.
This trip is 4 nights and 3 days of diving. All meals, beverages, snacks including. You will need to bring bedding and towels. YOU WILL NEED TO SIGN UP EARLY, because several people that are not in our club have called the Ultimate Get- away directly and have asked to go on these dates. I will accommodate them, if I do not have a full boat from our club. Last August we had many cancellations from our members, and we need to fill the boat to get our low price. The boat had an increase this year, but since I am the trip leader and will NOT be taking a comp, I am able to offer this trip at the same price as last year. Kim Whaley will be assisting me.
This trip is for hunters of lobsters and fish. We always have a great time, with diving up to 6 dives a day. You will feel that you have the whole ocean to your- self with only a couple of islands on the horizon and beautiful waters all around. Even non-hunters love it. It’s great for photography, or just sightseeing. This is about the best diving value to be found anywhere. We’ll board the Ultimate Getaway, Thursday evening at Fort Myers between 5:00pm and 6:30pm. We arrive Friday morning ready to start diving at 7:00am. We’ll have 3 solid days of diving, with a break to see Fort Jefferson. Bring your divelights for those
