Dear Kamala:

It is with great excitement that Melanie and I announce we are moving the Spree to Key West full time for 2009. We will make this move in May after the 2009 hammerhead season in the Flower Gardens.

We have mixed emotions about leaving Texas, which has been Melanieís home for 35 years, but itís time for a new adventure. The island chains of the Florida Keys and Dry Tortugas allow for fabulous diving with fewer weather cancellations than the Western Gulf of Mexico.

Our charters to the Dry Tortugas at the far western reaches of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary run for 3, 4 or 5 days, offering up to 5 dives each day. The isolated reefs of the Dry Tortugas are home to over 500 species of fish, plus sharks, dolphins, turtles and waving gorgonians. Join us for new sights and new experiences on a boat you and your customers already know.

Weíve made a lot of changes to the boat and operation based on your feedback, to constantly improve your experience. We hope you will continue to utilize the Fling for your trips to the Texas Flower Gardens, and choose the Spree as your sport diving and technical diving live aboard in the Dry Tortugas, Florida Keys, and hopefully soon, the Bahamas.

We will be taking bookings for 2009 much earlier this year than in years past. Booking packages will be out to you shortly after our return to Texas in August.

Look forward to seeing you aboard,

Frank and Melanie Wasson

For purely selfish reasons I wish the Spree could stay in the Flower Gardens splitting their time between TX and FL. However with the crossing from TX to FL or back costing over $50k that is just not practical for them.

Having just completed our first annual Dry Tortugas trip I am pleased to announce that we will have not one but 2 Dry Tortugas trips next year...one over the 4th of July and one during CORAL SPAWNING SEASON!!! :cheerleader:

I will post the dates shortly and Capt Frank and Melanie have even allowed us to choose the spawing date we want...how cool is that???? :wakawaka: :cheerleader: :teeth:

So join me in wishing them success in their newest venture and join me on the ongoing venture with one of the coolest llveaboard experiences you can have! :cheerleader:
