I live in michigan, and I am a student but I may be taking a 1 semester break or all online classes and I am very interested in doing a dive to observe\interact with octos. does anyone know where the closest good place for that would be to michigan? also what sort of things will I need to do beforehand, I assume lots of people here are experienced divers, I've done some minimal diving in my life in a pool when it was offered through my old highschool so I am familiar but I don't know much about if you need lessions or a permit or something like that, also are there places that rent suits and gear? if not how much is the bare minimum cost for the equipment and are thre any good places I can get stuff used? are there any divers that live here in michigan and dive around here?
