Tim from Pioneer CA | Scuba Diver

I am PADI Advanced Open Water and Nitrox certified with an Altitude speciality. 

I am fairly new to diving getting my OW certification in May of 2017 and my AOW 4 months later. I have 53 dives between Lake Tahoe (Meeks Bay, Sand Harbor, Emerald Bay & Rubicon Wall), Monterey (Aquarium, Breakwater),Carmel, Point Lobos, Avalon (Casino Point), Playa del Carmen (Jardines Reef, Wreck Mama Vina, Cenote’s chac mool/ little brother & Dos Ojos) and Cozumel.

I will take any chance I can get to go diving, anywhere in Northern California ocean or lakes. I would also like to do some river diving if the opportunity ever arose.

Boat or shore diving it’s all good.

If you need a dive buddy let me know. I am available most weekend’s and mid week with about 2 weeks notice.

Hey Tim, so sorry for this late reply, I sort of spaced out on a reply. Firstly, sorry for damage to your house, I am also doing some roofing repairs on my place from the last storms we had, a little inside drywall damage also. I should finish by April. I have been doing some free diving, mostly Sonoma coast to stay in the water. I am planning on starting to dive maybe by middle to end of April. When ever you are ready, please let me know and we can get some dives in. I was also going to contact both John and Surge as they are still diving and have invited us to join when ever we make it. Take care, stay well and hope to get back soon, diving buddy Ron. You can also contact me on my cell, 415 479-4701 and email is
I may also take a side mount class as an dive master instructor thinks it may be easier for me, we will see. Talk soon,R.

Hi Ron, I am so glad you are feeling better. I would really like to get back in the water also but right now all my time off is being spent trying to get my house back together after the tree hit it last winter. If all goes well I should be open for dives again around May. until then Happy diving
