Hello my name is Scott I have About 33 dives under my belt and hold a rescue diver certification I recieved in August, it’s made me want to go pro so looking for a buddy to dive with on the weekends Lake Phoenix,va beach or anywhere around va, nc. I also hold a captains license. Since taking my rescue diver course all I can think about is scuba diving and want to keep adding up dives this year and next so that I can go for my dive master then instructor but also have fun will doing it because that’s what scuba is all about having fun.

My name is Kevin and I live in Chesapeake. I got re-certified in August 2017. First certified in Rhode Island as a NASDS Open Water Diver. I had my own Dive business at our local marina, cutting line off props, changing zinks and cleaning the bottoms of Fast Boats. A family member got certified so I thought I would get re-certified after 40 years. So Aug I got re-certified by Scuba Commander by Mark Fineman and Annette Barbarise. Now the weather is changing I may got some bottom time in Fla. But I do plan to more diving in Lake Phoenix and progressing in my certifications.

I am a Disabled Navy Veteran so weekdays or Weekends could work for me.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Kevin P.
