Hi Brian! Do you have interesting dive locations in AZ? I am up here in the middy mid west LOL

Nope! I travel to do my diving. San Carlos Mexico is where I drive to dive. The Sea of Cortez is really nice to dive!

Hello Sr., i need some help. I’m new here in the US, i came from cuba 1 1/2 year ago and i was diving there for many years and i also have and open water for the CMAS, i want to start to dive here but i’m not sure about what certifications i need and if i need a dive insurance too. I have experience diving many times close to 45 mtrs and practicing spear fishing. The reason i don’t have higher level certifications is because in Cuba you don’t need it if you have your own dive equipment.

The best thing to do is to go into a local dive shop and talk to them, they’ll be able to explain what you need to do, plus they’ll be able to help you get set up to dive here in the US. Good luck and I hope to see you diving soon!

Thanks for the buddy request. You’ve got some great photos. If your ever in Florida look me up!

Great photos! I love Palau!!!! I have been diving there twice, as I lived in the Micronesian islands for about 7 years, so it was only about a 2 hour flight,, my other favorite was Cebu.
Impressive resume of sorts you have.

I love Palau too, it was by far the best dive destination I’ve been to so far! The Blue Corner was my favorite spot there, but Olong Channel, German Channel, Siaz Tunnel, Pelileu Beach were also incredible! I hope to go back there some day!

San Carlos Mexico is where I dive mostly now, I go there a couple times a year. It’s close enough to drive too and far enough to feel like you’re away from home! I’m going there in a couple weeks again!

Thank you for the add Brian. Looks like we are almost neighbors.

Thanks for the request. Do you do any Tech Wreck diving?
Brian_V - 3/31/2017 9:13 AM
No, wrecks aren’t my thing. I’ve dove a few, but I’d rather see reefs!

Hi there,

Let me know if you’re ever diving Monterey. I can dive there on weekends.

Thanks for the friend request. Looks like you are pretty much an expert with all the certifications that you have. They are pretty impressive. I am just getting started on my scuba journey so any advice you have is always welcome!

Hi, Brian! Thank you for the request.

I’m excited to be a part of the community and I’m hoping to gain enough experience to photograph new dive sites in the South Texas area.
