Any Scuba Diving Enthusiasts?

Recommended Posts

Krys, sounds cool I will talk to hubby about it. I am more enthusiastic than him when it comes to scuba. I'm pretty open on Sunday except for my shoot with Ileana at 3pm. 

 

Pineapplebride that so sounds like me, I am already so psyched about scuba I can't wait to really experience other waters. I can definitely see myself basing our vacations on good scuba destinations....lol!

Great thread!! There don't seem to be too many contributors, which I find surprising. FI and I are new to scuba, we were certified almost 1 year ago - we did our class and pool here in Calgary. Since neither of us have any desire to do cold water diving :) we went to Hawaii for a vacation and to complete our open water dives! We did all of our diving in Maui and it was amaaaazing!! Visibility was incredible - we did one dive (after we were certified) that was 100 ft (eek!) and when we jumped in, we could see all the way to the bottom! The fish, sea turtles, eels, reef sharks, etc were so cool. I'm hooked, I can't wait to dive more! I wish we were going somewhere great for diving for our wedding/honeymoon, but we've chosen the DR for many other reasons. I really want to go to Belize for a dive trip! My parents (also divers) go to Ambergis Caye every year and love it, they rave about the diving down there.

When I was diving in Belize I stayed at Caye Caulker, the island next to Caye Ambergris. Caye Ambergris is very touristy and busy, kind of like a mini miami. Caye Caulker is much smaller, quieter and laid back...sand roads, no cars, very relaxing! Both islands go to the same dive sites as they are so close together. I definitely recommend a trip to Lighthouse Reef, beautiful dives and the Blue Hole is there. Turneffe Reef was a close second too...

 

I'm leaving for Australia tomorrow... and I'll be diving the GBR this time next week!!  :) so excited!

My FH and I got PADI certified last summer! We did it in Monterey, CA, though. Fun, but it's WAY TOO COLD to do regularly. Hoping to do some diving in warmer climates during the summer :)

However after my first time diving in the clear ocean water I fell in love and can now say it should have been my birthday present. :D lol
