    I've been looking through the boards to see if thereare any divers in SC, particularly around the Columbia area. I've searched and most results are only from others talking about driving in SC, not that they are from SC.

    I'm becoming certified the middle of this month and know no one that dives. I'd like to do more dives other than chartered events so a dive buddy would be a must until I gain enough experience and possibly one day become a solo diver.

    Be patient. Going through your open water course will open an initial door to meeting people who dive. Don't be afraid to ask your instructor(s) or dive masters if there are clubs or groups that they themselves are members of or would recommend.
    I myself are in the Atlanta area and we head to the redneck riviera (gulf coast) usually at least once a month to get some diving in.

    Contact www.scubajohns.com, located in the Columbia area. A big promoter of local diving. Only dive shop in the midlands (Columbia area) that runs dive charters in Lake Murray and Offshore SC.

    I am one of the biggest promoters of local diving and have been exploring Lake Murray more than anyone. The local news even did a special on myself and Scuba John on all the historical discoveries we've made in Lake Murray. Divers Find Lost Towns Under Lake Murray We dive year round, not seasonal like the other shops. Check out my youtube channel and come join us on some great local diving! www.youtube.com/southcarolinascubadiving

    Same here! I am located in the Charlotte area and dive lake Jocassee, NCPDRA sites and the Cooper river. We are planning a trip to the Cooper real soon, so hit me up if you are interested.
    Jetdrvr22, I would love a dive together with a guide. I’ll buy lunch...and a beer or two. PM me.

    Another South Carolinian here. Just got back into diving and looking for some buddies too. Im near Rock Hill. Just became a member of PDRA quarry and have a few dives there so far. I’m usually ready to go at a moments notice if I’m not traveling for work. Let’s go!
