Nina from Orlando FL | Scuba Diver

Recently certified as an open water diver while visiting my family in Dallas. Happy to be back in Florida and ready to check out new spots.

I also like playing with airplanes and going to Disney. I also check out every rocket launch I can get to. I work full time and serve in the Civil Air Patrol and Red Cross.

I live with my cat, Ruby, who has her own fan club. Yes, I am that crazy cat lady.

I’m going to be in Ormond Beach, FL all next week on business. If I can escape, I’d love to go snorkle for a bit. Any good leads on places within a short Uber drive around Ormond Beach? It’s not feasible for me to take the whole dive gear set up, but fins, snorkle and mask are an easy pack.

New Smyrna Beach is just down the road within 25-30 miles. might see if they have a dive charter as there is a wreck there in the area. you can snorkel in Ormond Beach on the Halifax River which is just the inlet for the ocean

My wife and kids are going to be in Florida around wintergarden. Around 12/29/2020 - 01/04/2021 we are all new to diving we would like to know where there might be someone local planning on a nice dive for beginners we have some gear will need to rent some and looking for a local dive buddy that might be willing to go one or two days . If you can help us out it would be appreciated. Thanks Eric R.

Thanks for the add! I am a ATP certified pilot and instructor although I stopped a lot of it many years ago now. More or less retired at a little over 30K hours and 52 years flying. Cats are cool.

Sweet! What was you favorite airframe to fly?

You live in one of the greatest places to be a diver! From Ginnie Springs to Vortex, Devils Den, St. Joe, the Gulf coast wreck dives, Crystal River all the way to the Dry Tortugas. The reefs and all the rest. Welcome to diving and remember one thing... scuba diving is a close as you can get to heaven without dying! :) Enjoy, be safe, and have fun!

I couldn’t agree with you more! I’m really looking forward to taking advantage of it!
