My open water was done back in 1991 on our first visit to the island. We were staying at Journey's End and the Hustler Group was the Dive Shop on property at that time. I know that was a long time ago but seems like it was just yesterday. It was an absolutely marvelous experience. I was certified PADI and my step-daughter was certified the next year when we took the kids down for Spring Break 1992. Since having 2 heart attacks back in 1995 I have only been diving once and that was very shallow and recreational with a few friends. I miss it terribly. Diving is so peaceful and a beautiful thing.
Now I have to make do with snokeling but at least I still get to enjoy th water and almost all of the marine life it has to offer.
