New diver in the Carolinas. I’m looking forward to technical certifications as I gain the experience to enter the classes and aspire to dive in overhead environments. I would prefer shipwrecks, but due to the proximity of Florida cave country, it will most likely be caves.

I am open to diving locally once I own a drysuit and have the required training to dive using it safely, as I am not very cold tolerant. I have heard that the local quarries and lakes can have a sever thermocline that will put a 5mm to its limits in the dead of August.

Other than that, it is a close enough drive, that I am down for weekend carpools to the North Florida springs, or weekday depending on vacation time availability.

Hey there, we also have wreck dives off the coast of NC as well. Since you like to dive wrecks. Scuba shops in MB and NMB, in SC. They go all the time. I have never dove in a dry suit. I thinks it’s too hot for here and Florida. See ya round. Maybe we can get a group for Florida. I love it there.

I’m in Bob’s Sidemount class up there right now. They are just trying to figure out a way to get us in the water to keep the class moving. Is that an organize trip with his shop? I might have to holler at him and see if there is room on it, it sounds like a pretty fun dive!

I’ve heard the hot hole is a fun drift dive. Someone said the current from the outflow is strong enough to take your mask off if you turn your head wrong! I don’t know many of the local sites, other than the Quarries for PDRA, Lake Jocassee and Keowee, and Blue Stone. I am down to try our a few local dives here in the coming weeks. I am in a sidemount course, and really would like the time to get in the water and start tweeking my gear. I have been splitting my business up about 50-50 to Diver’s Supply in Pineville, and Xplore-Scuba in Fort mill
