I'm a free diver. But I am going to get advanced open water and scientific diving cert by the end of summer. I also want the nitrox cert and the wreck diver if i have time. My uncle was a master diver, but he died before he could certify me as a diver.
Favorite place to dive is right off Marsh Harbor, Bahamas. any good dive spots off Souther Cali? I know a lot of white shark charters go out of that area.

mid and northern cali are where the white shark spots are. theyre not too prevalent down here. catalina (where i learned) is rad, nothing on the east coast ive heard compares to our kelp forests. ive spent alot of time under da sea in the channel islands, ive logged easily 40 hours of bottom time in those islands alone.

i also want nitrox but that cert is about 250 bucks and wreckdiver is on my list aswell

You guys have farily cold water though. In the bahamas and east florida, its warm and clear. The keys are the 2nd largest reef structure in the world.

lol, that is cold. The Gulf got down to 56 degrees this year, all our fish died, although it is the clearest i have seen the Gulf in a while. I can see a whole 10 ft. in front of me now!

i've got a 1 mil chest zip dive skin and a 3/2 full suit with back zipper. I like the back zipper better, but i mostly use it for surfing, so front zippers suck for that.
