SCUBA

How many here are certified? I do my pool class on Saturday and open water soon.

Always wanted to and finally doing it at 42.

Wish I had gotten my certification before going to Cayman this past spring.

Well that's kind of in the middle of nowhere! LIKE!!!

If you ever have the chance to dive Guam (before it tips over), I'd highly recommend it... Examples here.

I highly recommend diving. I also waited until my 40's, but now I wish I hadn't. I dive every chance I can and am now a divemaster. Been all over the Caribbean.

Some of the local divers stationed at the base's dive locker who were working on our boat took us to the southern part of the island, it wasn't deep, but it was endless reef..

Dove for first time in Turks and Caicos last summer. Going to dive at minimum once yearly until no longer physically possible.

Diving kelp forest in June this year and hopefully somewhere else this fall/winter.

Yeah, never done that area. It's on the list for sure. Galapagos too. Though not sure I can ever live on a boat for several days and dive intermittently.

Maldives was amazing for a variety of reasons but each resort is on its own island. The diving is outstanding but travel time to each site can be forever. The most amazing schools of fish I'll ever encounter. There's every type of dive there if you search for it.

Bora Bora is my favorite place to dive. Multiple sites nearby and all pay dividends with experiences. You have a nearby dive to see mantas, another to be surrounded by 20 lemon and reef sharks, and then another to see a school of 30 eagle rays. This was very rewarding.

Hawaii didn't blow me away, but there was a gimmicky night manta ray dive which was perhaps the coolest thing I've ever done.

I did my PADI Discover Scuba in Fiji and then dove there again a few years later when I was more serious. Similar to the Maldives. A lot of amazing stuff and all are spread out. Gorgeous.

In the Caribbean I've done Turks many times and the Caymans. A lot of really nice experiences there but they're relaxed.

Regardless, if you're reading this thread and interested, go get certified. If you're just underwater for 45 minutes concentrating on your breathing in a relaxed state, it's still one of the best forms of therapeutic meditation that you'll encounter.

I like the idea that diving makes planning vacations easy.

The son and I have diving the ghost ships on the Great Lakes on our bucket list.

(And this lady doing the photography is one of the best in the business...)

Right outside of Apra, near Orote Point, there is a small blue hole... great little dive site drops down pretty deep, open back up to the ocean, fun dive.

Never dove the southern end of the island though, wasn't there long enough. But i did get to see most of the island...

Hangin' out at the Inajaran Pools

It was a great trip. 25 dives, a Cenote and night dive (firsts for the younger son), and lots of good time. I touched on my NDL once, but that's OK, a 10 minute stop was worth the price of an extra 10 minutes.

Was talking to an old dive buddy on the east coast today and he's planting the seed for a trip to Truk. Now THAT would be cool as all get-out...

Speaking of the Hoist, before I joined the Navy I dated the Hoist's CMC. Amazing how small the world is...

This is another dive I want to do:



My boat kicked the Radford all over the ocean during an exercise, I went 10-for-10 with putting ADCAPs on them, enough to have been given the ship's seal. I might just return it... Skimmers are just too easy.. Unless you were on the USS Moosebrugger, those guys were uncommonly challenging..

And I think the Navy still has the school in PC, "On the Bayou"!!! Good times...
So the son was looking for some things in the basement, and looks at what he finds... Ha, now he's pumped to make that dive. Perhaps I return it to ship as a token of my appreciation for it becoming a reef and helping the ocean.
