    1st dive about 15 feet. 2nd about 20. Third was about ten. The last dive we had three foot viz. I couldn't see the instructor except for when it was my turn to take my mask off. The second dive we had a sea nettle invasion. It was like a wall of them. I almost freaked out.

    Sea Nettle? In my checkout dive, I went to Mermet Springs in IL. The first dive was on a 15 ft. platform, and the second was too. Then we went on a wall dive and to the 727 from The U.S. Marshals movie. That was really cool! There was also music playing underwater, it kinda old music, nothing new. But, still cool! When we were on the platforms, doing out exercises, a whole bunch of Brim came up and were like circling me. They were all around me, and only me, nobody else in my group had one beside them. It was funny! The Brim were like, "Hey look at the one girl, lets all circle her!" Haha!!:D

    Hey KZ, we have some great easy-peasy shore dives here in SoCal. My kid has been certified since age 10 ...he's almost 16 now. Some of our favorite beginner shore dives are here in Laguna Beach. These spots have fairly easy entry, short surface swims, and lots of cool stuff to see. However, our most favorite shore dive is the Avalon city dive park on Catalina Island. The place is just unbelievable ... lush kelp forests and tons of really cool marine life.

    Here's a couple pics of my kid in the dive park a few weeks ago. Check out the Giant Sea Bass. They were as big as him, yet so gentle.

    Good luck with your diving.

    Hi. I am Zendiver.3d's daughter. I am 13 and live in Kuwait. Mom and Dad own a dive shop so I am always in the water. I love scuba and have been in all sorts of conditions, form clear Red Sea to ripping currents and near zero vis on fossil dives in the Cooper River. I can't imagine not diving. I want to go to the Maldives, next.
