Monthly Meetings

The 2013 Buckeye Divers Calendar
Meetings are the second Tuesday of each month at the Tommy’s Pizza @ 1350 W. Lane Ave. Upper Arlington OH 43221 at 8:00 PM Tommy’s Pizza

Memorial Day May 25-28: $150 estimated price plus motel.
Dive Boynton Beach with Starfish. www.idivestarfish.com. This is a nice easy drift dive. We will do a 2 tank dive on Sunday and Monday. If you want to arrive in time to do a Saturday dive we can also get that going. West Palm Beach Airport is the closest and if we coordinate flights we only need 1 car for the group. Jerry and Linda have been diving with Capt. Craig for years as our locals. Last trip there were lots of Goliath Groupers and the invasive Lionfish. Rumor has it that the West Coast Floridian Buckeye Divers may join us for this trip.

July 4-7 Morehead City North Carolina: $230 plus motel.
Dive the Graveyard of the Atlantic. We will be diving with Olympus this year. Trip is limited to 6 people this year unless we split the group. Water will be in the low 70s or high 60s. Vis should be good as the plankton won’t be in bloom yet. Lots of shipwrecks and usually loads of sharks. The Olympus boats are all very nice with onboard heads and plenty of seating. You can take your tanks or rent them there-with the price of gas it usually is best to rent them. http://www.olympusdiving.com/ for more info.

July 27-28 and August 17-18 Saint Clair River Run:
This trip has no charge for diving so your only costs are transportation, lodging and eating. The St Clair river is in Port Huron MI (about a 5 hour drive from the east side). There is a pretty nice campground to stay at along with several budget motels. This can be some of the clearest water you will dive in but is very weather dependent. A south wind for several days will clear the water up but a north wind will make it very muddy so I always check the weather before departing. Dive shipwrecks right from shore. Dive flags are mandatory. Leave Friday night and return Sunday night so no time off required. Transportation is driving and sharing rides. If you need a ride or have a ride to share I can put you in touch with others on the trip. You need your own tanks and weights for this trip.

September 1-4 St. Ignace, MI: Cost TBA.
We’ll be diving the Straits of Mackinac with Straits Scuba. Keep tuned for more info.
