Chris from St. Cloud FL | Scuba Diver

Hello dive community! A little about myself, I started diving in 1994 in Maryland waters and got certified in 1996. From there I continued with my certifications and training. I even had the unfortunate chance of participating in a rescue mission of a downed sight seeing plane in the waters off Ocean City, MD. Over the years I under took several varied dives from deep water quarries, ocean, lakes, estuaries and rivers. I’ve dove in fresh and salt water, day and night. My love of diving and working with marine life and reptiles landed me a job with a public aquarium for a couple years diving in their tanks, doing shows, cleaning tanks(from the inside) and feeding the tank inhabitants. After getting my AS degree I moved to Florida for the chance to be closer to warmer clearer blue waters. I looking to start taking trips around the Carribean and Cozumel and others. All my old dive buddies lives up north and looking to make many more hear in FL.

Nicely done! Sandy those pics are cool, great colors! I’m actually shooting for a day trip the week of October 19-23rd. I’ll txt you Sandy to see if you would be available that week. Obviously I would like to hook up diving with any one else to. It’ll be the first dive in a quite a while for me

I was there on 9/28. I went with a guided tour which started with snorkeling with manatees, then finished with a cavern dive. Thoroughly enjoyed the trip, definitely a site worth going to.

ScuBob, did you use Bird’s Underwater when you were in Crystal River? Where did they take you for your cavern dive?
ScuBob - 10/08/2014 4:37 PM
Sandy, I went withaAmerican pro dive. Not sure exactly which cavern it was but there were three sections with the back section being enclosed.

Sandra, you are some kind of special girl, it was great talking to you the other day and cannot wait to meet you and your friends up at the Crystal river and the Grottos soon.

Hi Chris, is this message in reference to our phone conversation, or is it addressed to another "Sandra"? :-)

Hey, I have to say I am very excited about this website, many thanks to you Greg for bringing this community together this way. It has only been a week and it has exceeded my expectations 1000%. Everyone is very nice and seems ready for adventure(my type of people!). I am in the middle of moving closer to work this week but a week or two after I think ill be ready to get started utilizing my new dive buddies.

Hey there, I am looking to schedule a trip to Crystal Spring real soon, and will be looking for a dive buddy. Something simple and fun! Would like to make it a two day trip but i’ll settle for a day trip. I have a canoe I am planning on taking (just in case) to reach hard to access spots.
