Captain Steve Moore of KEYS MOBILE DIVING was our host for the holiday weekend, and the group enjoyed the laid-back, easy diving that the weekend presented.  At least a couple divers enjoyed the break from extensive technical diving gear, venturing into the 82-degree Atlantic with only a single tank, shorts, and a t-shirt.  Following are some photos from the various dives...
