Mama and I completed part one of our PADI Open Water Diver Certification this weekend. We took the classroom training and performed five confined water dives in a 12ft deep pool. Next weekend, we’ll dive in open water in Monterey and hopefully get a chance to check out the aquarium when we’re there. Breathing underwater is totally strange at first, but once you get used to it, it is totally awesome.


  1. I have always wanted to do this. I’m going to be in the Florida Keys in November. Maybe I’ll do it before I go. :-)

    What’s the cost?

  2. Dude! I am so jealous. I always wanted to get certified. And I live in a state surrounded by water. I’m such a slacker… Just don’t get eaten by a shark or something, ok?
