I want a place that is close to Orlando/Kissimi, I understand it gets better the further south i go, however, this is not an option. I am with my family and we have prearranged times to go places and I have only one day to go scuba diving and must be within around a 1-1 1/2 hour drive of the location. I have my advanced open water through PADI.

try taking a introduction to cavern diving with padi. i think the caves are close to orlando. would be more expensive but definatley worth it.
