I became a certified diver in 1993 to be a dive buddy for my son. Initially, I was certified through PADI. In 1998 I went through and got my Dive Master certification. Then In 2004, I started diving with Extreme Sports Scuba and Deb and Grady. My first trip with them was to Mermet Springs. In 2011 I went through the courses with Deb and Grady and got my SDI Dive Master certification.
Then… Came the dreaded doctor visit.
