Vandenberg and Dry Totrugas

Patrick and I had an excellent time in the keys this weekend!

We got into town and met up with one of the cooest people I know, Ivan.

We suited up, and hit the dive boat on Saturday.

I LOVE Captain’s Corner. We did a two tank dive on the Vandenberg. It’s a 522 foot wreck! They sunk this guy in 140ft of water off Key West:

We caught a spectacular Mallory Square Sunset, and hit the town for a few beverages.

At 5am on Sunday, the alarm went off.

We had to get to the Yankee Freedom – our ferry to the Dry Tortugas!

We got to the island…

…explored the fort…

…snorkeled…

…and camped!

It was AWESOME. The fort has a moat – and a crocodile lives in it! He ended up there after a big storm, and he just never left. He climbs out at night and eats bird eggs from a nearby key.

Foggle ROCKS for dive masks, and TriSwim lotion does wonders on sunburn 🙂

  1. The scuba sparkle pic is awesome! Sounds like a fun trip.

  2. That sounds like a great trip! I would love to snorkel sometime!

    Looks like you had a blast. I’ve never been to Key West or Dry Tortuga – but want to. Farthest south I’ve been is Islamorada. I’ve heard Irish Kevin’s is another great bar in Key West.

  4. Sounds like an awesome trip! It has been FOREVER since I’ve been to the keys. Looks like a blast.

    Love the shimmer scuba setup too.
