I'm looking to get into diving. I stopped by the dive shop in the woodlands and they were really nice and informative. I was wondering if someone wanted to talk shop for a little while. I still have quite a few questions. I know the stores try to help as much as possible but I also know that they're trying to sell you stuff.

Haha ok I'll call you. The only problem is that I'm commited to a wedding that weekend. I'm not exactly pumped about missing reef currents.

Do join one of the many diving forums, they give you perfect advice.
I need to look up which one I was part of, and no selling tactics on there.
Kinda miss my diving too, I used to be a Pro diver for the Fire Department in Amsterdam and everyday I was on duty we had a run for a dive with all these Canals in and around Amsterdam.
Have been diving around the world when I was traveling, lost count by 100 :crazy:
My Padi ( Professional Association of Diving Instructors) is expired since 2005 as I couldn't do the recourse of it due too two hip replacements and a major back surgery.
I prefer to dive in front of my tank for the last 10 years :rockon:

I'm a diver. Just completed the certs/dives for Master Diver rating last year. I've done classes with Maximum Scuba and Sea Sports Scuba in The Woodlands. Both are fine. I did most of my specialties at the shop in the Woodlands because it's close to me and I really like some of the people there. It really comes down to the specific instructor. Go with one you like and feel comfortable with. That is the most important criteria by far!

Yeah they seemed friendly in the woodlands and its definitely closer to home. I decided to hold off on diving for now. I dont plan on going on vacation for a while so it would be frustrating to get the certification and only have one or two local places to practice in freshwater. I wanna see the reefs!
