Tracy from Cape Town Western Cape | Scuba Diver

I love the water, so scuba diving is the perfect way for me to ease my natural curiosity of all things above and below water.

Have done mainly boat dives and discovered how sea sick I get, with or without meds. Though the sites I have seen underwater makes it all worth it. At the moment I’m discovering shore diving in and around Cape Town which has been great. Only not so great part about that is heavy kit that if I fall over there’s no getting up unless a crane is involved. Still love it none the less.

It’s sad really. I haven’t dived in years now. Just can’t seem to find a buddy that is in my novice area and hiring a dive master is to expensive. Also all my gear now needs servicing which is also pricey.

I had some hardships the last couple of years, but I never got rid of my diving gear. I live in hope that I’ll use it again.

Hoping I’ll be able to dive this summer. After first saving up to have all my gear serviced. It’s expensive. :(

And of course it’s been AGES since I’ve surfaced on here. Though have been reading articles etc.

And of course it’s been about 3yrs now since my last dive. (sounds like AA)’s very frustrating that diving can be harsh on your wallet, when your wallet is a tad empty.

I was crapping myself while taking quiz. I’m chuffed with 80% considering how long it’s been. Lol

That’s the very first time I’ve EVER heard the word "chuffed". I had to Google it :) Thanks for the English lesson.

Still in f-ing Bathurst, SA. Not sure I even remember how to swim, never mind dive! :’(

So I’m in small town (village) in Eastern Cape called Bathurst for now. For those of you wondering, it’s about 10 minute drive from Port Alfred. No idea when back in Cape Town. And there are no phone lines out here, so hardly any internet.

Greg, when will there be a Divebuddy cellphone app? ;) or Mobile version. Or is it there and I just missed it.
