Welcome to the SCUBA page
Our Underwater Adventures...
Christopher is an Advanced Open Water Scuba Diver (SSI) with around 65+ dives. He has taken the Advanced Buoyancy, Navigation, Deep Water, Night, Fish ID, and Wreck Diving Specialties. In 2000 he purchased an underwater video camera from Backscatter in Monterey, CA to record all of the sharks and other life that he's seen below. Sand Tiger Sharks are a common site off of the North Carolina Coast.
On a dive in 2000, off of Beaufort, NC, he saw a large Manta Ray (kinda looked like this). He, unfortunately, did not have his camera with him then.
Chris went diving in Grand Cayman during our 2002 vacation. He got some awesome video footage of the glorious reef life. He also hit up the famous "Stingray City" where you get to feed Southern Stingray's in their natural environment. We also did a fair amount of snorkeling ourside of the timeshare and at Rum Point.
Not sure when this will be. Have other things that have come up that seem to take up all the time.
Chris went down to the Florida Springs with Gypsy Divers to see some of the manatees. This we an excellent trip and provided a nice long weekend during Feb 15-18, 2002. I did get some pictures and video. Click here to see some of the videos.
Chris went out to the Cooper River the weekend of April 7 and 8, 2001. This was a new experience because I'll was looking for fossils, in particular huge Megalodon teeth. I came back with some good stuff. Check out this page for more details..
