Used to be a PADI Staff Instructor. Sadly I don't get to dive as much as I want to anymore. Work and family life tends to do that. But, things are smoothening out so the door shall open again. :)

My certifications are:

Open Water Instructor (SDI)
Dive Master (SDI)
Equipment Specialist (NASE)
Rescue Diver (NASE)
Nitrox (TDI)
Advanced Open Water (NASE)
Open Water (NASE)

My experience ranges to almost all types of diving, except under ice diving. I have dived quarries, lakes, springs, sink holes, grottoes, open ocean, caves, and wrecks. To date, my deepest dive has been 110ft, and that was inside a cave. My most recent dive was in Nassau Bahamas with Stuart Cove's dive center, doing their awesome shark dive adventure (as sharks are my absolute greatest passion!).... Chalked #1 item off my bucket list!

I'm honestly afraid of large bodies of water. I won't even go in a swimming pool.

I started diving at 12 or 13 years old. Today, at 19, I am Advanced open water and nitrox diver, and Iove video games so I guess here I get the best of both worlds. Diving is one of my passions and I am planning to go, at least, as far as dive master and do two or three specialty courses. Since there aren't many diving games around I hope this one reaches the top because it has the potential.
Cheers.

Work is for people who don't dive

I'm a PADI Open Water with 6 or 7 dives (don't have my logbook beside me right now). Funny, I didn't know how widespread diving was. I just casually meet other divers among people I already know.

Diving for 15 years since moving to Australia from the UK. DM'd for a while here in Sydney and interned on a live-aboard in Vanuatu. Dive highlights include Chuuk Lagoon, Gizo, Dahab, Belize and the Great Barrier Reef.

Chuuk Lagoon is amazing and has some phenomenal wrecks!

PADI Divemaster + MSD here. A little over 500 dives with an emphasis on underwater photography and videography. Though it won't replace the real thing, I'm loving the potential this game has!

Hey folks! My name is Alexander Valdez, and I have recently graduated a MSD (Master Scuba Diver.) The MSD is awarded when you're already an AOWD plus 5 specialities, mine being Night, Nitrox, Deep, Wreck and Manta Ray Awareness - and I'm not done! There's still a long path ahead!

If you have any questions or if you're planning to dive for the first time, add me on facebook and we can talk! https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100011423663474&ref=bookmarks

Hello there..!
I dive in Canada (Quebec)
I'm a AOWD with 8 specialty. (Enriched Air, Wreck, Buoyancy, Deep, Sidemount, Drysuit, Emergency Oxygen Provider and Rescue)
I mainly dive in dark and deep cold lake where the water is around 5 Celsius or less in summer
and diving in winter is a real pain to do because of the preparation needed to ice dive..
so the game is a good way to dive in the warm when it's cold
it's a bit missing in the technical part but still more realistic than the other diving game.
