Hi. I've been diving for most of my life. I cannot imagine
being limited to dry land. The quiet, and peace and weightlessness
of SCUBA diving are a great joy. Hunting lobster - mano a
mano - is a fine way to relieve stress. It almost does not
matter if we do not actually catch any. Notice, I said almost!
There are a wide variety of other activities for us to enjoy beside hunting -
exploration, photography, even ice diving! It is a constant puzzlement to me that everyone does not become a diver.
Oh well, that's their loss! All the more to enjoy for us, the fortunate
I started diving while in the army, in Hawaii. I still remember
my first SCUBA dive (doesn't everyone?) It was raining lightly, the
surface above us, was like a molten stained glass window - flowing blue,
green and purple; the fish were a rainbow and the dive was sooo short! After a few years and
returning to Massachusetts, I started to help out at SCUBA classes, and in
1976 became an Instructor. That was a few thousand students ago.
Now I, along with my dive partner, Bert McCasland have become Course
Directors. This means that we can teach more Instructors. I
think that we are pretty good at it, but I am prejudiced. We have
several more Instructors now and all want to help you to dive!
Our store started as a "what if," then moved on to "we can do it
better," and then into reality. Very few shops have the variety of
gear or amount of stock waiting for you. Stop in for a visit.
You might find a bargain, or something you just have to get. If you
do not, that's fine, too. We all love to chat. We can talk
about diving, equipment, or the price of cheese in China. I hope
that we become good friends.
