A Guide to Your Perfect #SunshineStateScuba Florida Diving Road Trip thumbnail

This post is brought to you by PADI as part of the PADI AmbassaDiver initiative. Read my latest ramblings on the PADI blog!

Sunshine State Scuba Day Four: Ginnie Springs thumbnail

Road trips always seem to find me entering a weird time-space continuum where every day that goes by just blows my mind. I seem to wake up every morning and say, wait, it’s day three already? How did day four sneak up? I’m supposed to seriously believe this is the last day of our road trip…

Sunshine State Scuba Day Three: Devils Den and Blue Grotto thumbnail

When you start casually researching freshwater dive sites in Florida, there are two superstars that are going to come up over and over again: Blue Grotto and Devil’s Den.

I miss diving. Long time readers may have noticed that over the last few years I’ve been logging less and less time underwater. That’s not because my interest in diving has waned — far from it! It’s pretty much the same reason that many divers stay dry for too long. Work gets busy, bad weather provides…

Diving in Barefoot: Scuba Diving Roatan with Barefoot Cay thumbnail

Five days in Roatan flew by. And while compiling my notes and photos for a post about my time there, I had to admit that quite frankly, I didn’t squeeze much into them. I could blame the weather, or my partner-in-crime Rika (with whom I was too busy gossiping and giggling to be bothered to leave…

Diving Atitlan

I might have taken a laid back approach to my week in Lake Atitlán, but there are plenty adventure opportunities on hand for those who want to be a bit more active while visiting this high altitude Guatemalan highlight — paragliding off a volcano, hiking up a volcano, or diving below a volcano all come to…
