We will choose our lodging based on our dive plans for this trip. We have used a number of excellent hotel choices over the years along the Keys. Generally, each room will be double occupancy, with standard amenities (A/C, fans, pool, TV, wifi, etc).
We will use several different operators during the course of this week’s trip, and the final selection of operators and dive sites will be based on the makeup of the participants and our goals. Depending on a number of variables, our trip may include dives on any of the following sites:
- Vandenberg (max depth 150 ft)
- Curb (max depth 185 ft)
- Wilkes Barre (max depth 250 ft)
- Spiegel Grove (140 ft max)
- Northern Light (190 ft max)
- Queen of Nassau (220 ft max)
- Doc de Mille (150 ft max)
- Duane / Bibb (125 ft max)
- Other selected sites may be considered, depending on the group, weather and other variables
Each dive site will be selected ahead of time, allowing time for proper planning, gas selection and blending, equipment considerations, and dive planning. This is a team-centric program, so participants will work together to best plan, and execute, dives that incorporate safety and the well-being of each member above all else. Mission is secondary to safety. No solo diving is allowed on our technical trips. IVS has decades of experience diving these wrecks and working with the best operators in the area, all of which help ensure the best experience for our divers, along with the very best in safety and service for our Indian Valley Scuba divers.
One of our primary focuses will be on the development of the technical dive team mentality, how we apply this to our dive planning, and how we implement it during the execution of our dives. Our goal is to not only provide the opportunity for great diving experiences but also to nurture the development of each diver as an individual, as well as a team member.
