Shawn from Olympia WA | Scuba Diver

Just got certified in December 2010 in warm waters. So far I’ve doven about 9 times in Cold Waters and enjoying it greatly! Reason why I got into diving was I’ve always enjoyed being in the water and enjoyed marine life. Since I got certified in Maui. I’ve seen many things just in that time frame. I’ve had 3 close encounters with White Tip Reef Sharks (Wasn’t harmed). Two of which I filmed. It was the most exciting thing I’ve witnessed.

I’m always looking for more people to dive people. Once I get comfortable night diving I’ll be willing to dive any day of the week. (Only one night dive under my belt with a charter.) I normally dive on the weekends and am always up for diving every chance I get.

Diving Style: 

I like to swim slowly looking at all the little critters and taking pictures of them. I like my buddy to stay next to me and on the same depth level as me. I’m a very safe diver and I try to communicate very clearly to my buddy. 

Dive Meetups:

I normally post a dive on the nwdiveclub forums whenever I’m planning a weekend dive which is usually every weekend. If you’re interested PM me and I’ll give you my contact info. 

(Normal size of the groups are 3 to 6 people so far.)

Regarding the looking:

I’m always looking for more Dive Buddies. Can never have too many =).

Current Certs:

Basic OW, Dry Suit.

Future Certs Planned:

Everything needed to become a Dive Instructor.

Anyways give me a holler and let’s go diving! I’m always up for diving.

I work Mon-Fri 8 to 5 so I only dive on the weekends for now. Once I get certed for night diving then I can dive any day of the week. 

I do not own a scooter yet but plan to in the near future.
