    Best dive for me so far is Catalina Island; HI was a big disappointment.

    I'm certified through Divemaster but haven't been diving much at all lately. I've done high altitude diving (Lake Tahoe), dry suit, equipment, rescue diver, etc.

    Best, most varied diving? I'd have to say Catalina too. Weirdest place I've gone? That'd have to be on a training dive with a local SO to a dam. 150' to the bottom in silt. Although I've spent a lot of time in Monterey Bay, I'd have to say the wall at the Coast Guard Pier is pretty cool.

    If you ever get the chance go out on a shore dive at night during Bioluminescence. Its an incredible experience.

    Or to lie on the bottom of a fresh water lake and look at the stars and moon. Not quite the same as bioluminescence but pretty cool too.

    Didn't Peace run aground a while ago? Conception and Vision are pretty nice as well.

    FTW, Truth Aquatics runs a great dive operation in the Channel Islands.

    I just noticed it's being run by someone else now. Many years ago, it was part of Truth Aquatics' fleet.

    I could have sworn it ran aground although I could still be wrong.

    X2 for Roatan.

    I've done alot here in S. Florida, dove the Caymans, Cozumel, Roatan, the Keys. The Spiegel Grove (big navy ship sunk in the Keys) was awesome, but Roatan definitely takes the cake.

    Night dive/bioluminescence experience is a must-do for any diver. Truly an incredible phenomenon!

    Used to mostly Freedive as I was very into the spearfishing scene.

    Also I have about 10k in brand new wetsuits at my house right now. Everything from Akona 3mm to Xcel 9/7/6 suits. This is stuff we bought froma s tore that was closing and need to clear out. So if you need a suit let me know, im talking below wholesale prices.....

    Open water/Nitrox. I used to be a diver at NASA's NBL. Fun job, great people. Loved the FL keys. I really want to dive in the CA kelp forests.
