Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What is the average depth of a fossil dive? Most dives are typically around 28-30 feet.
  2. Do you limit bottom time? No, there is no limit to bottom time. Divers can dive until they reach 500PSI. Since everyone has different bottom times, dives can last anywhere between 1 to 2+ hours.
  3. Is this a guided dive? No, it is not a guided dive. While on the boat they will give an overview of each specific dive site, draw a map, and answer any questions that we may have. They will also review navigation skills with you before the dive if need be.
  4. Do I need a Florida Fossil Permit? No, you do not need your own fossil permit. All the finds on the boat are covered under their permit. 4. What is the visibility like? This is low visibility diving. The average visibility for fossil dives in Venice is 6-10 feet. Some days visibility is 20+ feet and some days it is lower. They do not dive when the visibility is less than 3-5ft.
  5. What is the water temperature in November? Historically, the average water temperature in early November is around 74 degrees.
