Nancy from Kansas City MO | Scuba Diver

I just got certified in Bocas del Toro this February so I still feel a little insecure about diving...just want to do more! My spouse is not interested in diving so I am looking for a dive buddy to dive Belize with in August. I am flexible, however and can work with another person’s schedule as I am retired. I am 63 but strong and fit. I regularly run, hike and swim for exercise. If you are single and looking for a casual friend to do some diving with, please write. Maybe we can work something out!

What sort of wet suit is best for diving in water 70 degrees F? Going to Hawaii this winter and have tried on a couple of wet suits that fit except too tight on my feet don’t go in really easy either.

I dive in 72 degree water year round in Florida and I use a 3m wetsuit no issues

I’d suggest a 3 m full body wet suit, also I use lycra socks to help get in and out of the suit

A 3 or 5 mm work’s well (if you get chilled easily go for a 5 mm w/ gloves) ... But body mass is an important factor ....I dive with gloves & a skull cap

Did you ever go on your Belize trip? My first trip this June was to Belize, I went to Turneffe Flats Resort and it was AMAZING! If you are interested I would like to go again!

I can see that! All the dive buddy requests I’ve been getting are all males and I’m just looking for female dive buddies that can maybe share a room with and that’s it. I want to get back to diving but not spend so much money on it. So I figured that if I can find a dive buddy and we can decide where to go and book everything ourselves it will be a little bit cheaper than getting the package deal. Dory

Hi Nancy. I admire that you followed the desire to get certified. I will not likely be diving again before the fall but I will contact you if I do and see if you want to join in. In Belize, will you go to Caulker or stay more mainland?
ncopple - 4/12/2016 11:01 PM
San Pedro, I think. Suggestions?

Hi, well anxious mostly because I am still pretty new. Excited though!
