Is there anything more exciting & fun then scuba diving?

Well it is finally happening, TimeToDive.US and I of course, have moved to paradise. We moved to St. Croix US Virgin Islands. There is no finer place to dive then St Croix. It has the shallow diving of the Frederiksted Pier, that is the equal to anywhere in the world, to the walls of the North shore.

Who am I?

Scuba Diving Instructor coming out of the water

I am an Scuba instructor using the world’s leading scuba diver training organization’s system, PADI. Although I had my first scuba experience around 1990 I didn’t become a certified OW diver until May 1998 at Jamestown RI, USA. Subsequently, I became a Scuba Diving Instructor and have been teaching Open Water SCUBA since 2012, and am a PADI Staff IDC Instructor. Click on the links below to see what I can teach:

PADI Scuba Courses

Diver Alert Network (DAN) Courses

We have also started an airbnb:

We are pretty excited to become Airbnb host. A&S Tropical Cottage is a cute 700 sqft that, along with the host’s place, sits on 1 1/2 acres of tropical paradise. The cottage is a 1 bedroom, one bath place. It has a kitchen with a gas stove, microwave, toaster, coffee pot and a full size refrigerator. It also has a washing machine if you’d like to go home with fresh clothes. It is a clothing optional homestead.

Underwater Photography

I have recently been accepted as an affiliate with the finest place to get underwater photography that I know and that is Backscatter.com. I have been using them for years to buy equipment and I hope you will use my affiliate link to purchase all you photographic needs.

Fish Identification

For fish & critter identification I use 3 books by P. Humann/N. Deloach, primarily:
Reef Fish Identification 4th edition
Reef Creature Identification 3rd edition
Reef Coral Identification 2nd edition

For fun, I am now certified as an TEC40CCR Rebreather diver of Ambient Pressure Diving’s Evolution. Outside of teaching, I like diving wrecks (accidental and purposefully sunk), the reefs of St Croix and learning how to be a better underwater photographer.

Remember, that although diving is fun and for the most part a fairly safe activity, if you attempt to do something without proper training you could probably DIE, maybe not the first time, but it will catch up with you. Nothing I say here can be construed as proper training, find yourself a certified instructor and learn the proper way.
