Hi! I'm an OWD recently checked at Bombinhas - Brazil
in submarine? or Pata da cobra?
hey,by the way diving in roatan- Honduras is pretty awesome, there is a private submarine owner charter that can take you down to 400-600 feet for about 200$US if one wants to experience this. I was a little short on the cash when I dove there but was very curious to try. This man, I forget his name off hand, also does research for the local marine projects for Honduras and perhaps other countries working with Honduras on these projects.
Small island but awesome food and diving. :-)
Hey I'm in Brazil too, i just got PADI Water Diver license, in Rio de Janeiro
Padi Advanced Open Water Driver incl Nitrox and deepdiver specialty
Have diven in, Curacao, Australia, Egypt, Maldives, Malta, Tenetife, Mallorca and Netherlands
I'm in the middle of Ohio state, so I'm a dirt diver if that counts. :/
Iowa here. Same boat. :)
I took the certificate in Sydney when i was there a few years ago but have not dived since.
In my vications I do skin-diveing. But real diving is something that is on my todo list for quite a while.
I just put my head under the water in the bathtub and make bubbles. Pro-skill.
Better than nothing eh mate ;D
I've not done real diving in far, FAR too long :(
I'm an AOWD, with some specialties (nitrox, bouyancy, dry suit, navigation) diving in Costa Brava :)
I´m an IT Manager, Programmer, Diver, Magician, Chef looking forward to write my first book, would love to become a Private Pilot, learning to flight in simulators. Living life at beautiful Barcelona 100 meters from the sea. Keep in touch and Rock On!
Diver here too :D Cool to see so many divers around here.
ik right! such a great and friendly community
I'm not a diver, too affraid about that unfortunately, this is why i love diving games. What i can't do i real, i do it virtually
There is nothing to be afraid of! you just need to learn how to dive and you will for sure discover a new wonderful world!
I`m a PADI Rescuediver, with some specialties... Most of my dives were in warmwaterareas like Egypt or Maledives
Rescuediver, with 140 dives
I have been diving for quite a few years, usually do 2 dives each week. I live in Australia and there are some nice spots not far from my place, and luckily my friend has a boat we can go out in. I've done lots of courses, up to and including rescue, these days I just dive a lot and it's only the last few years that I have felt really comfortable. We usually do a 35-40m dive first before the sun comes up, followed by a shallower one. I love the deep dives in the dark :)
I have done about over 2000 dives with everything from a 5L tank and speedos on a 5m reef plunge to twin tanks with two stage bottles with deco mix and two scooters to fully closed circuit and dive time of 3 hours and also industrial work diving where everything was done by feel and to see your timer you had to press it up to your mask because the silt chain don't mix. I would be happy to give technical advice to the game development if needed.
Been a diver since 1996. Finishing up working on my Dive Control Specialist certification right now and will be starting Open Water Instructor classes at the beginning of next year.
Never dive in my life, live to far inland that there is no real good dive ares to even think about diving :-(
Current status: working 2-10 really s*#k ^_^
Maybe this game will incite you to try it, diving is undescriptible, you need to try this once in a lifetime !
Large bodies of open deep water scare the ever-loving carp out of me (phobia caused by childhood trauma, for what it's worth I'm also scared of tomatoes for the same reason) but I'm hoping that this game and an Oculus Rift will help cure this so I can at last take advantage of the lovely Western Australian coast where I live. And yes, I'm being serious.
Where in WA? I'm near Geraldton and not to scare you out of the water too much but we have had 5m great whites 500m off the shore here. Good news is I have never seen any tomatoes anywhere near the any of the WA coast.
I've ridden in submarines and gone snorkeling in various locales around the world, but never had the pleasure to dive with any gear. Sure, I've gone diving in lakes and oceans with nothing but my breath, but I don't count that.
I went diving once, to get certified as PADI Open Water Diver. Been out of the water for about 4 years but I hope to get Advanced some time!
You need to, diving is sooo amazing :)
I've been diving instructor for 5 years now. I have around 2000 dives and can't get enough ! I love both tech and recreational diving and would love to see this game spreading the word around the gamers ;)
Where you teaching ?
hi im a owd and i have 50 dives and going the aowd know
Canadian diver, coldest I dove was 4 degrees Celcius.
SSI Master Diver with 135+ hours logged underwater
I dive at 2 celcius at Les Escoumins and with a wetsuit :) Dont think i will do this again lol
I took the certificate in Egypt one year ago during my vacation.
Diver in RL. Too cold in Canada to dive in the winter. Guess this tropical game can hold us through the season.
Where you from ?
I'm a Military Diver in France .
Malade! Fait tu de la plongée récréative également ? J'aimerais bien en apprendre plus sur ce que tu fait.
[moderator] please also post in English.
[Google translate] "Sick! Makes you also recreational diving? I would like to learn more about what you do."
Diver from Quebec. Certify with PADI open water. Im still young and sure i want to get more certification. And i think the one count the most for me its diving under ice :)
Diving under ice certainly is on my todo list aswell :D
Diver from the east coast USA, near New York City. Mostly shipwreck diving, but have been on a few modest reefs.
It is indescribable, and for those here who don't dive, you MUST try it if at all possible!! "Discover Scuba" programs range in price from $Free to $80, depending on the dive shop and location.
Typically involves a couple hours both in class and in the pool. Some places (warm water) will also take you on a shallow REAL dive as part of the experience.
A great way to try out diving, without the commitment of signing up for a full-on certification course.
My certifications: TDI/NAUI/PADI: Stage Decompression, Advanced Nitrox, Rescue Diver, Shipwreck Survey and Penetration...
Also certified to work with the Handicapped Scuba Association and Wounded Warrior Project.
Working on: Divemaster, Trimix, and (maybe soon) Cavern, and Rebreather!
Twenty percent cooler in ten seconds flat!
Only been diving for about 3 years, but LOVE it.
NAUI Advanced Open Water
Nitrox this summer
Completed all of my open water dives for Open Water Certification in O'ahu, Hawaii. Still haven't actually finished getting my certification, though. Definitely on my to-do list, nontheless!
yes i am master scuba diver diving mainly in cold fresh water. meaning the great lakes and all the rivers nearby. and of course down south in the sea when i go on vacation
also converted to sidemount about 2 years ago. not going back
I have seen the sidemount setup, but not up close. I was wondering if you could explain why you like it so much, what are the pros and cons in comparison to a normal rig?
