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. :-)

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 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 :)

Hi,
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.

Have fun.

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.

Diver in RL. Too cold in Canada to dive in the winter. Guess this tropical game can hold us through the season.

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!
Someday: Instructor.

Twenty percent cooler in ten seconds flat!

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?
