Lessons Learned From a Weekend Dive! (Plus video!)

Hi Dive Buddies!
I had a great dive on Saturday with Greg & Dave (last names withheld to protect their prospects for future political office). We had a good time diving but it also brought to light a great reason to get local diving in.

SCUBA divers know how exciting it is to discover new and exciting creatures on the reef. What’s even better is when a buddy that’s new to diving finds something fun and has the opportunity to share that with you! What’s even better than that is when your wife gets the chance to make that discovery on a recent trip to Puerto Vallarta where we dove near Mariettas Island! I’ve included video of both dive days below as well as some thoughts about my experience shooting underwater with the GoPro.

Destinations of Opportunity

There you are… you’re traveling for business or visiting your relatives; walking down a boardwalk… and then it hits you… ‘I could be diving!’

How often do you take the opportunity to go SCUBA diving when you are traveling for other reasons? Do you avoid packing your gear if you’re not going on a ‘dive trip’ simply because you’d only get one or two dives in anyway?

I know I have. I’ve been to California and the northeast plenty of times to get some dives in but left my gear at home. Why?

Here are 5 reasons divers lose dive opportunities!

  • It’s too much to carry.
  • That’s not the point of this trip.
  • The airlines charge too much for checked bags.
  • What if I carry it all on my trip and can’t dive?
  • I would only get a dive or two in anyway.

Now, let’s talk about strategies overcome these excuses and make every trip a ‘dive trip’!
