hmmmm no freshwater diving?

being that i'm in a land locked state.. i have done more diving in lakes... mostly man made lakes... which is very interesting!!! i've seen catfish as big as cars and houses at the bottom of the water like in the movie "in dreams"... cars too! roads.. anything you can think of... which is so odd.. and CREEPY hahahahah

i'm strange... i love water.. diving swimming bathing looking at it i dont care i love it.. but i fear it... deep or dark water is my fear... so scuba diving seemed a logical way to overcome this fear.. and now its an adrenaline rush every time i even think of it...

hahah and i'm funny to watch a show about wrecks or anything underwater with.... i watched a show about the titanic once with a boyfriend and they were showing the decent and when the wreck came into view i screamed and about jumped in his lap hahahah then i giggled the rest of the show...

Oh, the shark has pretty teeth, dear, And he shows them pearly white. Just a jack-knife has Macheath, dear, And he keeps it out of sight.

Re: hmmmm no freshwater diving?

We have a ton of freshwaterautolinker.com autolinking image places here in Florida to dive, but I admit I would rather dive a reef
Sounds like you've dove some really interesting places though.

Re: hmmmm no freshwater diving?

My freshwaterautolinker.com autolinking image diving has pretty much been limited to quarries during training for various c-cards or murky areas for rescue diver. I'd love to dive some of the crystal clear springs down Jarred's way.

Re: hmmmm no freshwater diving?

Honestly, i am afraid of sharks. That is why I prefer freshwaterautolinker.com autolinking image diving than scuba diving. For me, it seems like freshwaterautolinker.com autolinking image diving is way easier than scuba diving. Seeing sharks and huge aquatic animals will just scare me off. I might not be able to enjoy it.
Your freshwater diving experience is definitely amazing! I should go there if i have the money and the time!

Re: hmmmm no freshwater diving?

freshwaterautolinker.com autolinking image diving is fun, but reef diving is awesome. I went in the bahamas a few years ago and since i didnt have any corrective lenses at the time, i had to get a little closer to the fish, corals, and a nurse shark then the rest of the divers to see them... the shark was quite awesome. No better way to get over a fear than to just do it! I must say, if it were a great white, i wouldnt have gone in at all without a cage. lol

Re: hmmmm no freshwater diving?

Wow! I bet you are expert in the field of diving. I haven't tried diving yet. I was about to try out scuba diving in one beach in Asia. Unfortunately, I didn't have a license to do it. I didn't have time to get trained. Although I'm really planning some time this summer.

Do you have any tips or advices I could use? I'm also planning to dive so I can fill up my aquarium with fishes that came from my own hands. That would be really cool

Thank you!

Re: hmmmm no freshwater diving?

Open water certified here. Truth be told... haven't been back in since. Dived several springs here in Florida. Certified at John Pennekamp in Key Largo.

Coolest dive I've done was a night dive at Kings Bay in Crystal river. Cavern dive. We weren't certified but by luck had met instructors that invited us and took us down. Night life comes out. All the divers with flashlights looks cool too.

Re: hmmmm no freshwater diving?

You have to watch out taking fish or other critters from the water (FW or SW) yourself for your tanks. Some states have lists of fish that cannot be removed, usually due to rarity. Some require a fishing license, or if you're after inverts (ie-lobster or crawdads), a special 'bug' permit.

Re: hmmmm no freshwater diving?

Arkansas has some pretty awesome FW diving spots, especially to the west that tie into the caverns around there.

Not much to dive in up here cept the big lake called michigan and even that water is too cold for anyone who just has snorkel SW experience. I do wade and got a mask to view under the water but the water I play in usually runs only a foot deep sometimes like right now its 13' deep.
