Ricky from Croton on Hudson NY | Scuba Diver

Diving since 2008

If your in my area or I’m going to be in your’s, new to diving and can’t find a buddy give me a call. Not an instructor but Mavricky will be your wingman :)

2012-06-25 happy birthday to me update, I’m a PADI Divemaster at long last.

2013-05 been living on my boat for almost two months and loving it. Lots of renovation work to be done but loving that too. Hope to have it finished before end of dive season this year.

2014-07 still working to complete renovation of the 1973 Luhrs but may have to put her up for sale. Been a slow season for dive work and winter storage fees fast approaching :(

Will I ever get a clear water dive again? I’ve got to get out of here. Hudson working dives are all I get anymore and I’m burned out. Going on my 4th season of diving only for work. BUT, Florida Keys end of August for two weeks mapped out and booked. Dumping everything and hooking up my little sailboat to the SUV and heading out of here within the next 5 weeks. Caution to the wind. Time for this old Navy man to set sail out of NY. Please wish me luck. May stop in Summersville Lake WV to get use to new dive computer before heading to Florida Keys.

Best wishes and safe diving to all

Hi there, thanks for the comment on my little divebuddy article. I don’t get to see Logan much, he lives in PA, Anyway, I travel to Long Island once in a while and don’t know if your still in that area... I am always looking for someone to dive up there... Let me know if your ever in Ohio and need a divebuddy. I go to Gilboa, Circleville Twin Quarries and Natural Springs...

Well I’m still here in Yonkers NY until the end of the month so if you’re looking to wreck dive ocean be quick :) Once I leave here it’ll be much harder even for me to find a place to stay around here. I still have a few wrecks I’d like to dive but just out of time. Looked at apartments today in PA near Hershey. Got to take what I can afford so that I have something left over for diving :)

Arrived Summersville Lake WV Friday and if I don’t burn out I’m here until the 20th. Diving, mapping and picking up a little underwater trash.
Mavricky - 8/23/2012 8:07 AM
3 net bags of trash, don’t know how many dives but great nav in the low viz part down to 120’ where it was still 66 degrees

66 at 120 feet wow. Vis has been off everywhere I think.
Mavricky - 8/29/2012 6:24 PM
Yup. Finished and posted my map of Summersville Lake Winter Access. Not realy good but it’s ok
Mavricky - 7/17/2012 12:02 PM
Retirement. Well so far it isn’t all I had expected it to be. I haven’t gotten in one dive yet.
Greg - 6/03/2012 1:32 PM
Thanks for adding the comment on Dutch springs. Let me know if you ever have questions.
Mavricky - 6/02/2012 7:27 PM
Really great day. Had some gear issues to work out so got the solo pass and locator. 1st dive fixed the gear problem and second solo dive hit my target right on. That took me right up to friend showing up for his scheduled night dive so we teamed up for that. It was great
Greg - 6/03/2012 7:32 AM
can you add a comment to the dive site you visited so others can see latest dive conditions?
Mavricky - 6/02/2012 8:57 AM
At Dutch Springs, PA and standing by. Lunch then if nobody shows guess I’ll have to find another diver looking for a buddy. Friendly bunch, shouldn’t be a problem.
Greg - 6/02/2012 5:15 PM
