Sometimes all it takes is a little prodding and an over-eager 10 year old to take the “plunge” so to speak and try something new. I was always quite content looking down at the big blue below from the comfort of my snorkel at the surface. I didn’t think diving was my thing. Well, I was wrong. After many classes, pool dives, and skills dives the whole family is now PADI open water certified! Turns out, Dave Barry was right all along …

“There’s nothing wrong with enjoying looking at the surface of the ocean itself, except that when you finally see what goes on underwater, you realize that you’ve been missing the whole point of the ocean.” (Dave Barry)
