So I'm leaving Monday to go to Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Cozumel for my OW cert. I'm nervous and excited all at the same time. I can't wait to get in the water and see what there is down there!

Run Luke Run, The dark side will consume you and take all of your money, energy, time...

But O is it fun.

Hey! Good stuff. Doing it in a warmer climate would have been nice for my OWs, but I'm glad someone else on the board got to do it for me. Have fun and good luck!

Wow, thanks guys!!! I'm so excited. I'll post a full report when I get back! That is, if I ever decide to come back. I might like it so much that I just stay and keep diving...

lovemexico615,

How can Coz be any fun with that warm water, great viz and lots to see? Bo-o-o-o-orin-n-n-n-ng. I did my OW in 47 degree lake water, 35 degree air temp, and 4 foot viz in a Texas lake.

THAT'S DIVING!!!!

(I'm trying to convince myself that I had the better time. Not succeeding...:smiley36:)

Have fun, ya lucky devil.

For diving it would be blue, then green, then brown, and finally black.

oh yea... people don't even know lol my divemaster said we weren't gonna go out if the seas were rough... above 2-3 feet waves.

skip a scene

we were out there the boat was about to flip lol it was NUTS.... 6-8 foot waves, POURING rain (no thunder or lightning)... REALLY rough seas.
a lot of people fed the fish. i think i was 1 of 2 out of 20 people on the boat excluding the crew and divemasters that didn't puke. roughhh seas. my divemaster said after that day we could dive anywhere. great experience lol
