About Me: Was recently certified as a PADI advanced diver. Went to Bonaire last September with some great people!Did my nav in Cape Ann, MA! LOL! Couldn´t see 2 feet in front of me! Bonaire finished my cert with Boat / Drift / Night / Deep diving! So much fun, so little time!
Favorite Dive Gear
Anything I buy from New England Ski & Scuba. They guarantee their products and will stand by their products, 100% ... Trust Dave & Ollie to get me (or rent what I haven´t figured out what to buy, or whether it is worth buying a dive computer vs manual tracking.... Used a computer in Bonaire, friend let me use it. Loved the ease but should have read how to read nitrogen levels.
Favorite Dive Locations
Bonaire - Want to dive off the Costa Rican coast, near Puntarenas! Saw this really cool Nat Geo on this place off the coast. I did a website for a friend in Cararas National Park. Would love to go!
I´m certified to 100 feet. Did my Deep / Wreck Dive at the Helma Hooker in Bonaire... Very cool, seeing these big night feeders out in the daytime.Exit was a bit rough but less rough than the previous dive at the Oil Slick in Bonaire.. Tough exit, storm coming in. Thank goodness for great people in dive group!

Hello and a belated welcome to the board. Since you made your slate have you had the chance to get into the water any place else? Would love to see more pics of anyplace you´ve had the chance to dive!
Hi Bob,I discovered scuba after I changed careers (don´t make anywhere near what I used to but still have the bills) so, no last October in a lake at 42 degrees is cold enough. I have an underwater camera
