Scuba!!!

Recommended Posts

Hey ladies! Sam and I have always wanted to get Scuba certified, so we decided to do it during our honeymoon! It was a fantastic experience, and a great hobby to start together :) We bought the PADI books in the states and read them before going down... that let us complete the course over 3 half days. During the course, we got to do 4 open water dives, and for the bargain basement price of $350/pp it was waaaaay cheaper than getting our certification in Philly. For anyone interested in Scuba in the Negril area, we went to SUNDIVERS NEGRIL JAMAICA - they were really fantastic!

Yay Jenn!!! I was certified in college and I hardly dive anymore, but I love it and do it every chance I get. Well every chance I get where the water is above 70 degrees, anyway!

 

Congratulations on your cert!!!!

I was cert in high school... it is the coolest feeling when you are neutrally bouyant (sp) it's like you are floating! I love scuba!

It was a lot of fun!!! That's a great price, btw! You'll still have to do the open water dives, but we were quoted $700/pp in Philly! That plus still needing to do the open water was more than we could afford. We did buy masks, snorkels and wet suits before going though. I was surprised to need the wetsuit, but at 60 feet, it was cold! And the surface water temp was 85 degrees!

That's awesome. FI and I were hoping to do it before we left but don't think we'll have time. Now maybe we'll do it while were down there! :-)

Did you see lots of cool fish!?

Great to know! We were thinking of Keys trip this year, so we just may have to do that!
