Looking for freedivers in Islamorada

I leave my 38 ft sport fish and my 20 ft flats boat in Islamorada at Founders Park (MM87) 7 months a year from Late October until June 1st. Over the last few years I have made a lot of good friends in the Keys but have yet to met anyone who likes to freedive and spearfish. So, here I am on Spearboard looking for guys to dive with.
I am a trained level III free diver that retired young (age 51) so I have the time. The months my boat is in Islamorada I spend more days in the Keys than I do in Jupiter.

I have to tell you this is weird looking on the internet to meet other guys. I hope it doesn't turn out to be like bad internet dating... You know like when a chick post pics of herself from 15 years ago, tells you she has an athletic body and shows up to the first date 50 pounds heavier than the pics. You think "Athletic body? When did doughnut eating become a sport?"

Looking forward to meeting normal guys that want to dive and kill some fish.


Thanks

Re: Looking for freedivers in Islamorada

Hello John nice to meet you. My name is Ryan and I live up here in Jupiter area as well. But I use to live in the Keys and still go down there a lot in the winter for bluewater spearing wahoo. I usually trailer my boat down there but be great if someone who was keen to go diving down there had a boat there save me trailering! I keep my boat in the water behind my place in North Palm be great to meet up and talk. Ryan

My son and I might be down for some fish killing. We live in Homestead and trailer to Tavenier quite a bit in the next few months. We are avid free divers / spearos.
