Hey ya'll, (I figure... Texas forum.. you would understand ya'll :D)

Moving to Houston from Austin and would be very interested in any tips for immersion into the diving community there. Austin is easy... go to Windy Point.. stand around long enough and bam you're set.

I'm a newb to scuba but have been playing in the water my whole life. I'm mainly looking for a reputable shop in the area (ST is awesome, but are they the end-all solution for training/etc.?) and good weekend trips that my wife and I can enjoy, or that I can insta-buddy and enjoy.

If it helps, I will be living I think in the north western parts of the city... though truth be told I get lost in a closet on the surface (this is w/o compass) so for all I know it could be North Central.

Sorry to hear you are having to leave Austin. A positive thing is the ease of getting a charter to the Flower Gardens or the rigs. Most of the charters are out of Freeport which is an easy drive from Houston. I had to move from Austin four years ago & landed north of Dallas.
