    Comments: I am 27 years old, and have been a diver since 2001. We just recently moved to the area from Minnesota, and my boyo doesn't dive, so I am looking for some people to go diving with. I am an experienced diver but since moving down here haven't been able to go because of conflicting work schedules and that nonsense...Anyway, now that my schedule has freed up some, I am looking to get out more. Give me a yell if you want to, I am always up for a dive. I have dove many places including Cabo, Bahamas(did a liveaboard there in 2006), Cozumel numerous times, Washington State, Lake Superior, and some in Wisconsin. I also love kayaking and underwater photography.

    New to the board; not so new diver; I live sort of on the edge of Carrollwood and Citrus Park. I make trips to West Palm and the Keys a few times a year; planning on making one or two "dive destination" trips in the next year or so (Bonaire; Roatan; Belize maybe).

    Always looking for a dive buddy for the weekend trips; interested in doing more diving as I approach retirement

    Comments: I'm fairly new to diving. Just got certified in July of 07. I am loving it, and can't get enough. I grew up on the beaches and in the water, but took me a long time and a buddy to get me to dive classes. Now....I want more.

    :coffee: Hey all! I'm Sadie, new to Tampa and new PADI instructor. Been diving about fifteen years, all over the world, and just returned from a six-month stint in Japan.

    I'm in Brandon area, and am used to 10+ dives a week lately, so I'm definitely looking for dive buddies here.

    Thanks for such a great board, and please feel free to say hello!

    Location: Currently I'm in Guam, but in the process of transferring to Norfolk VA. My family is located in Oldsmar Florida.

    Comments: I'm a Navy man. I kick myself in the butt for not getting certified while I was on shore duty in NC. I have read so much about the wrecks in NC that it makes me sick to my stomach to know I lived in Morehead City NC and know that I was so close and didn't even know it. I'm fairly new to diving been certified a little over a year, but have hit it full throttle. I'm currently about 85% done with my Divemaster. I know it's fast, but I'm only taking it for the education, not because I actually think I'm a "Divemaster". I received a killer deal on the class over here in Guam and couldn't resist. Anyway, I'll be in Florida for the month of August, and more than likely I'll have a lot of time on my hands during the week, so hit me up and we'll go get wet together.

    Hi All! I live in the Brandon Area. I have been diving for many years, but slowed down to a major lifestyle change, which included a divorce from my primary divebuddy! I'm saving up for a big trip sometime this year! If I can find Whale Sharks late August/ early September, then that is where I would like to go. I do some local diving, so if anyone wants to get together please let me know!
