I'm an avid diver and instructor - I live (and dive) in the Seattle area, with frequent forays into the north end of Vancouver Island (and less frequent forays into warm, blue water).

If you ever get to come west, look me up.

I've had my certification now for about 2 years, and live in Philly. I've seen cephs in the wild, however, only from the surface while snorkeling. :lol:

I just got certified this summer; had a good time diving in the Bahamas.

I'd be up for joining someone for a dive around LA or San Diego =)

Hi all! I'm 24, and am currently in the middle of earning three minors in diving here at my university in northern california. I love diving all up and down the California coast, but I'm really hoping to get up north to Oregon, Washingion, and the San Juan Islands sometime soon. If anyone wants to meet me somewhere for a dive, let me know. I'm really big into freediving, spearfishing, and collecting tasty invertebrates as well. Ever had abalone? mmmmmm.....gastropod..... :cyclops:

I'm a diver in southern ontario! I live in oakville but am currently in school at UW. I haven't gone on a dive in about a year tho, and don't own equipment, but i have my padi ticket and love diving, so maybe sometime in the future we could get a dive expedition together.

Edit: I learned to dive in british columbia (ocean educations if the name means anything to ppl reading...) and the pictures of the dives in BC almost brought tears to my eyes as the pacific ocean off of BC is by far the most beautiful (and biologically diverse!) area i've doven in.

Hey Ceph Fan and Octapush!

I'm a PADI certified diver and I live in very South-Western Ontario (oh who the heck cares, London!). I'm about to turn 19 and I really need to get diving this summer given the amazingly hot and sunny weather we've been having. Not sure if I'm going to find the time now though, but you keep me posted and I'll keep you posted.

Cheers!

It's something like 11 or 12, I'm not sure which though, by the way. I'm 14. :wink:

Another diver signing in

I've been diving for about 12 years and I would like to dive more often than I do. I've seen cephs in the wild in the Red Sea and Dominica. I've only been diving in warm water and I can't imagine diving in Canada. Do you travel to warm places to dive? I'm planning another trip to Egypt next year to dive. Egypt is a wonderful country and a GREAT place to dive.
