    Certification Agencies:
    Dive History:
    I was trained and certified in PA doing my first dives in a "cold" quarry.
    Thus, I am a warm water diver.
    My first dive destination was Roatan - 2 weeks- awesome! I did wall diving, deep water/ wreck and night diving. Next was Bahamas- not impressed. The water is beautiful. I did some night snorkels with my kids that were neat.
    Then off the coast of Kenya- not bad but it was the wrong season and could not go out to the good reefs. I also snorkeled off the Kenyan coast years earlier and did really like it.
    Dominican Republic- not impressed.
    Florida Keys- Key Largo- good.
    Costa Rica, Pacific- nice. I had a great dive operator and the price with lodging was a deal.
    Panama-Bocas del Toras- Caribbean. Ok, but could see just as much snorkeling. I do also like snorkeling so I did like Bocas. The people in Costa Rica and Bocas were great.
    I live in SC but have not dove here yet. Mostly because the cost and "cattle boats".
    Certification History:
    Just open water. With my destinations an skill no one has asked for more.
    Certification Level:
    open water
    # of Logged Dives:
    50 - 99
    Dive Classification:
    Just An "Average" Diver
    Years Certified:
    Six - Ten Years
    Dive Equipment:
    It was purchased used. It does need updating but has never given me any problems. Plus I have rented gear when it was not feasible to take my gear with me.
    Rebreather Experience:
    I've been to more countries than states. I am part tropical fish, love "warm water" and others like me. I'm pretty easy going and enjoy different cultures, new experiences and people. I'm divorced 6 years and my main objective is not to "hook-up" with someone.
    I use my air SLOWLY, am a very relaxed diver and love diving with someone who also maxamizes bottom time. I do not have much patience with a diver that does not respect rules or who does not have the expertise to protect reefs, etc.
