You might just have to " Wing it " elsewhere.
Besides... If you want to just get your "Gear Wet" you can find a better looking (and younger) piece of "Tale Section" on the Vegas Strip.

So they have to cover their costs - I bet both lose some money cause of the costs. But that is what business is all about.

I talked with the NPS about what they did - and told them they screwed the public with their permit process. They had other options.

As for the limited access - the NPS has already seen some damaged from illegal dives - including guages being stollen. So they decided to try this as an experiment.

Doesn't $450.00 a dive promote "illegal dives"?

yeah, it would be cheaper to get a friend to take you out on their boat.

and if your serious about not getting caught, splash a bit away from the wreak and scooter over to it.

not too difficult.

and for 300 bucks i would expect a penetration if i had that much training, otherwise i can just wait for it to raise up to rec levels (more of the lake dropping but hey same difference right?)

Are you refering to the plane in the TK divepark? If not, PM me. I'd love to find a new site to dive!
