My story? MY STORY?!?! I live a double life – day to day, I am an ordinary registered nurse, a wife, a mother, and to many, a pain in their butt! But on a dive trip? The true inner blonde surfaces! 17 years ago, I took a diving course as I needed a P.E. credit to graduate. Wanted golf but I was scheduled to graduate in December. Golf wasn’t offered in this snow covered high altitude desert. At least not in the winter! So I jumped in…literally! Had some “lovely” experiences and then became the “casual” diver. I met John, my husband, and realized we had diving in common. The natural progression was to dive more, then more again, and then to become an assistant dive instructor! What? Me? Then, one fateful trip to Roatan, Honduras, these guys picked us up………..a whole group of guys! One being the infamous Tony Wiley and the other being none other than Papa Bear! Both with a heart the size of Texas, we decided to hang with them. Mostly, I wanted to hang out in front of Papa Bear’s camera lense..he politely obliges me. I have offered to let him make me a star, and he just smiles….I can be found searching endlessly for a sea horse, and what ever fish Papa Bear entices me by saying is the fish of the dive, to the point of utter and total annoyance to John. I love diving with Doc Dori, as we have turned losing a ship/finding a ship into a lost art. Some day, you may find John and I living in the islands, where I will be living in a swimsuit and pareo. With a boat drink. Blonde. That is my story.
We hope to be your source of underwater adventure, Videos, Photos, Training, and a place of resources for both the entertainment industry and the public. We hope to attract the diving public to a site that will be interesting and educational as well as fun and informative.
We hope to be a forum for talent from the dive industry and the diving public. A place for talented production professional and amateur videograhers and photographers to display their best work and have an opportunity to be seen by a large audience.
We are open to suggestions as to the secondary direction this site might take. We are active divers who enjoy what we do and want to share it with the dry world. We hope that in doing so will promote SCUBA Diving, help preserve the worlds reefs, and introduce the underwater world and its beauty to the many that have not gone our will not go.
This site will be built slowly over the next couple years and will morph as needed to help as we can in furthering our mission.
Please feel free to use our message board to ask questions of your piers. Post important questions and hopefully get answers from the best in the industry. This is a great place to ask about your next location or adventure location. Where to stay and what to see, plus what are the inside scoops that will make your trip better!
