I have been out of diving for many years since being a PADI Open Water Diving Instructor back in 1979. Now I am thinking very seriously about resuming the sport that I loved so much.A good diving buddy in my area might be all it takes to get me started again.

Ray. Welcome back. Like you, I learned to dive in the early 70’s. I got PADI & YMCA Scuba Diver Cert. through the Kent State Scuba Club. I was away from diving for nearly 30-yeaers. I started back in 2012, and received Rescue Diver Cert this summerr, and will have Master Diver Cert by November. I was never an instructor. We have a great group of people at Atlantis Outfitters in Barberton. We have a monthly dive all summer, at White Star Quarry & sometimes at Gilboa. We also have a monthly get together in the Norton area. The owner is a PADI Course Director, and the main instructor, Mark McCutchen, is a retired Army Ranger. I do know a couple of divers from East Liverpool & Louisville area who use Treasure Cove Scuba & Ski Chalet in Niles. I do not know much about the Treasure Cove programs. Hope to see you diving soon.

Mark is not the owner, but he is their main instructor. Mark is working towards Course Director, but is not there yet. He has a great teaching technique, and very knowledgable. Hope to see you soon.
