After some serious back bending, I have managed to get into a training through the Sea Cadets to do some SCUBA with a very experienced master diver, and get certified. I'm very excited.
Back, and got my open water cert. through PADI. Breathing underwater is awesome! Takes getting used to, but it opens up a whole new world. I got to see a 7,000 year old forest off the coast of Thunderbay Island in Lake Huron, too cool!
I have been PADI open water certified for 19 years. I did about a hundred logged dives in 18 months in Okinawa but TMO lost my stuff on my move back. I havent been diving since then but I want to get back into it.
Diving since 1977, basic in high school. Numerous specialities, PADI "Master Scuba Diver" since 2010. Considering Divemaster / Instructor, don't want to take the fun out of diving by turning it into work. Hate California ocean diving, love Florida and Mexico as well as the Caribbean. Guam & Thailand are amazing! ;)
