Frank from Punta Gorda FL | Scuba Diver

My scuba adventure began late in life for me...after retiring, although I managed to do that at what some may think as an early age...and although it`s only been a few years, my excitement for adventure is heightened with the anticipation of each and every dive...I enjoy the unending learning that I undertake as I continue my personal education of diving and the certifications available...As I obtain new certifications, which always reinforce my understanding of the "basics" of diving, while at the same time, helping me to enhance and grow as a diver....all the while I become more proficient and more importantly, safer for me and my buddies, in all I do in the undersea world. Besides the wonder of what goes on in the sea, my fondest discovery lies with the people I have met along the way as my adventures continue. I have expanded my dive related experiences by traveling to many exotic destinations and other areas of the U.S.A. One of my fondest accomplishments in diving has been the formation of a dive club within our community civic association, the "PGI Dive Club" (PGI aka Punta Gorda Isles) We have started a nice club with a good mix of divers of all abilities...check out our website at Hope to meet many of my online buddies sometime and hopefully, see you "down at the bottom".
