Oh man, it’s been so long!  It was a blast though.  I got certified in high school and got to go on a couple dives in the Cayman Islands.  It was awesome.  My husband wants to get certified and I’d love to go again so hopefully we can make it happen!

I do! I love it. I live in New England which is cold, but at least I’m close to water. 🙂

I’ve only done a resort course and two 40 foot dives, but I think Fiance and I will get certified this year.

I love diving.  Do you get cold easily?  Even in the Caribbean I need to wear a full wetsuit because otherwise I get so chilly underwater.  The best place I dived was at Saba.

I would love to learn to Scuba, but I have inner ear issues that just won’t let me. I can hardly go under water. My husband is in the same boat; he’s blown an eardrum twice and can’t risk it. It’s really sad because we live in FL, are surrounded by springs, and can catch short, cheap flights to a ton of caribbean islands. Just about everyone is certified around these parts.

I’m not certified but I went on a 40 foot dive in Curacao on our honeymoon and it was awesome! So many fish and corals right from the shore! Curacao is great for diving and I heard that Bonaire is also really good.

I haven’t but Fiance loves it! Whenever we go on vacation he tries to get me to go SCUBA diving but I always wimp out. FI’s dream is to move to one of the Carolina’s and open up a place that teaches people how to SCUBA.

I love it! The best dive trips I’ve done are the blue holes off Belize, but Hawaii is amazing too! My Fiance doesn’t dive but I really want the two of us to take a class (him to get certified, me as a refresher) together and then dive on our honeymoon.

Darling Husband & I dived on our honeymoon in the Caribbean, it was amazing! We will do it again next time we go on vacation!

My parents are both certified SCUBA instructors, so I have been diving quite a lot. I went diving a few years ago on the Great Barrier Reef and I have to say it was some of the most boring diving I have ever done. The BEST diving was in the Similan Islands in Thailand – amazing!

I was certified when I was 16, but it’s been years since I’ve gone diving.  I wouldn’t feel comfortable doing it again without a refresher course.  I’ve been to several spots in Puerto Rico (home) and once dived in a wreck site in the British Virgin Islands, which was awesome.  I’ve done plenty of snorkeling since my last dive, though, and it can also be pretty amazing.

I dive too! I got certified when I was in college and dove in the Channel Islands.  So addicting…

OK, all this SCUBA talk, and I checked into a local dive shop where I live.  Since honey and I are going to Costa Rica for our honeymoon, thought that would be really cool!

 Its only $400 p/p – does that seem reasonable?  I am thinking of surprising him with it for a late Valentines Day gift (or early wedding present $400 is a lot of $$$$).
