Yeah, it is interesting in that area and I was thinking of getting my feet wet this year to do some diving. Been 4 years so will be refreshing myself on a few simple dives.

I plan on being in the 1000 islands for the poker run this year as a spectator and some photo's.

When is the Poker Run Dave? I surfaced in the middle of that (not quite, but close, in The Narrows) and would prefer to avoid doing so again. It's fun to watch though...

Awesome visability is a benifit of spring time diving in the Great Lakes.

Woo Hoo!!
Been diving in the Puget Sound in Seattle and had 10ft on the best dive and about 2ft on the worst dive. Ben a long time since I have seen that good of vis.

I finally got in Sunday (blown out Saturday) and had similar vis here. I dove the Arabia which sits in 110'. At 50', I could look down and clearly see the entire wreck. Lying under the bowsprit during the dive, I could see my boat silhouetted against the sun. Allowing for the angle of the anchor line, I would guess that the visibility would have been about 120' A little chilly mind you at 36F! Not quite like Utila was a few weeks ago...
