The “Nest of Texas”

I first ventured into the Lone Star State in January for a conference, while we were there, I learned that it there are hundreds of species of birds that call that portion of the coast home…and many, many more that migrate through. It’s quite literally a bird-watchers paradise and is known as the “Nest of…

Diving Days of Summer

Working a job that has an extremely unpredictable schedule (take for example walking in on a Monday and learning you’ll be on the 07:30 ferry on Tuesday) makes planning beyond vacations next to impossible. Most of my plans are get a stamp of “if I’m around, I”ll do this”. Well the universe aligned and I…

Chilly Dives in March

A review of that dive: it was cold, and dark, and we saw a worm. I’d do it again in a heartbeat. – Dan

Dive Days of (Almost) December

November 24, 2018  @ 11:25 & 13:16 It’s always a sad day when I turn my dive computer on and it tells me that my surface interval has been 34 days (really anything more than 24 hours is a bummer ha!). As the weather gets colder it becomes increasingly harder to find dive buddies that…

Finding Folly Cove

I’m not sure if the tales of Folly Cove began during my Open Water or my Advanced Open Water courses – either way it’s been on my “to-dive” list for at least two years. A place of fun little critters and wonderful visibility…it sounded right up my alley. Well, I finally decided that I needed…

Winter is Coming

Pool diving has its perks, I can wear my 3mm shortie wetsuit for hours and remain comfortable, if I wear my steel tank, I need zero weight, you’re always guaranteed great visibility…but it has nothing on the ocean. Even on “bad” dive days the ocean will always eclipse the pool. So while I was prepared…
