It has been a little over 3 years since my last and only dive/certification. I am so ready to jump back into the water and explore the underwater world out there. I am though, a little reluctant on doing so. Admitidly, I have a fear of or shall I say respect for the water and I am a little hesitant to jump in. I am sure everything will be fine but that worry is still there. I am the only one in my family & friends that is a diver and I really lack the assurance of having a trusting buddy. So I wonder if I should take the plunge in January when I visit Grand Cayman & Cozumel or should I just take a beginner resort course with some friends? I have never dove as an excursion before with someone I do not know. Can I really trust that I will be in good hands and made to feel comfortable on my own? Any posts or replies to this would be helpful. Thanks.
