    I only responded to the comment from DDM. I am not an expert in this subject and I can only make decisions for my kids and my dive school.

    I think this is a different place, it is across the lake from the ramp by the rock wall and dam. There is a Junk (decent sized wreck), airplane - fake but big, motor cycle, small fake graveyard, table with tic tack toe on it, and a bunch of other stuff. In about 60 ft of water, but pretty clear most the time as long as there isn't a training class around. They use the Junk for penetration training and such.

    That varies widely. Also, I would not want to offer a hard age that could be misinterpreted as "go" criteria when there are a lot of other factors. Sorry for the nebulous response.

    Best regards,

    Hi @aviator8

    I've been diving with my 34 year old son for 22 years now and my 30 year old daughter for 18 years. My wife has also been diving for 18 years. We continue to have wonderful dives together, more often just my wife and me these days. I continue to scheme on getting all 4 of us together again.

    I hope you enjoy diving with your family as much as I have

    Good diving, Craig
