Is there a place/dive shop not too far from Crystal River that I can do my open water certification?
I cannot wear a hood and am currently planning to go in Jan/Feb so the water temp. must be warm then. Also, I prefer salt water (no fresh water dive) cause my ears are very sensitive and not much current since I'm a beginner.
I wanted to go to the keys originally to get my cert but I realize now that it's pretty far away from Crystal River (and I really want to see the manatee).
I could change the time of year I go but really wanted to pick the time when I could see the most manatee.
