That’s amazing for PA this time of year. There is a lot to see here when you can acutely see the viz is pretty bad although the new management ha...

Greetings from Destin/ Pensacola F.....Over the weekend I completed my Rescue Diver Cert with Scuba Tech- Destin FL..The first day we trained in the Surf/Shore rescue....We started by removing all of our gear and putting it back on underwater... kinda of hard with the waves, current for a PA diver I was out of my element...However I think it is a great idea to have training in a enviroment that you are not used to. I pushed my limits in the gulf and found out how quickly the shit can hit the fan...
