2-Tank Gulf Dive
December 16, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
The Gulf of Mexico is a hidden gem of Florida. Despite rumors of poor visibility, The Gulf offers some of the most-diverse wildlife without having to drift by. Take some time to discover its true beauty on our 2-tank Gulf Dive. December is a great time of year to see the Gulf. The colder temperatures clear the water, improving the visibility and introducing wildlife that you don’t often see during the summer. This is a great time to see nudibranchs, spotted drum, sea hares, stone crabs, damsel fish, jacks, French angelfish, mackerel, bat fish and more!
Voted number one in the Tampa Bay area by TripAdvisor, Tanks-A-Lot will be our charter for our Gulf dive on the CAN-TANK-EROUS, a diesel-powered, United States Coastguard-certified vessel.

Camera equipment in encouraged, as this is the perfect time and trip to take out your camera on! Fresh water buckets will be provided for cameras and lights. This vessel allows lionfish hunting with pole spears only.
