Photos and Trip Description by Dr. Cynthia Gerszewski


“I went to get certified and had 2 dive days right after the certification days. I was nervous about a few things- mask fit, panicking while under water, not being skilled enough, making a mistake. But being side by side with my instructor, calm and experienced Steve Backerman, I surpassed those issues easily and got to the fun and wonder of diving and LOVED IT! Its a whole new world of AWE that feels isolated from the human world above. I felt like I was interacting and part of nature in a way that is difficult to do on land sometimes. I love many things about the whole experience- water, boats, friendly active people with the similar interest of loving underwater life and adventure. I will definitely go back and want to have Steve do my Advanced Certification so I can feel even more safe and at ease down there so I can have even MORE fun!  Dr. Cindy”
