  5. I love your topic and am so impressed that you have gone so far as to earn an initial certification in scuba diving! Where have you gone to scuba dive? Have you been to any exotic places or primarily in the New England area? Does anyone else in your family participate in this sport? I was shocked to see how expensive all the gear was that you have to have but, I agree with you that its money well spent especially when it comes to your safety. The underwater pictures on your blog are incredibly beautiful! Certainly one of the perks to scuba diving! View this site

  6. My sister is interested in trying scuba diving. I don’t know much about it, but I could tell her about body positioning. I know she would love to look at a school of fish while scuba diving so she should position herself accordingly. Thanks for the tips.
