Renee from Jackson AL | Scuba Diver


My name is Renee Wilson. My dad was in the Navy my entire life so we moved around about every 3 years or so. When i was 9 my dad decided to get my mom, brother, and me all certified in SCUBA diving. I LOVE the ocean and anything to do with it. Im on my way to becoming a dive instructor but need to get more dives first. My dad was transfered to Florida about 8 years ago but moved us here so we could take care of my grandparents. He traveled back and forth from here to Florida to work. 2 years after we moved here my dad retiered as cheif. So i am stuck here (of all places) and need a dive partner. My mom is to scared to go without my dad, my dad is to busy with him and my moms construction business, and my brother has work, a wife, and 2 kids to worry about. Im trying my best to get started but when i have no one to go with it kinda puts everything on hold. Im a very laid back, go with the flow kind of person. If you would like to know anything else, anything at all...just ask :)

Hi Rene,

My 1st 2-dives after getting certified was in Cozumel . We went to the Santa Rosa Wall on the 1st Tank and then Paridise Reef. Since making that dive I have read that those two places are the best that cozumel has to offer and I think I agree.......

What a way to spend a honeymoon.........Have fun and be safe!

I am trying to get my dives up and will be going to Vortex/Morrison every other weekend or so and hopefully oceans more here soon. I live near destin but will go throughout North Fl on fris and sats.
