My only regret about discovering and joining Single Divers is that I didn't discover it and join sooner!! I've been diving on and off since 1985, with various groups, often just making my own arrangements, going alone and "tagging along". But now!!! I found SD a couple of years ago when I was wandering through a dive shop and saw an advertisement for a trip to Fiji. What diver doesn't want to go to Fiji but to arrange it myself - daunting. So I signed up!! Wow!! Epic!! Everything about it was great. Getting there was a great adventure but easy since we were "following the leader". All the arrangements were made, the people on the trip were friendly, great to dive with and Kamala was on top of everything. It was almost like being a kid on a class trip with no worries - but better!! I've been following the website and when I saw that SD was going back to Dominica I didn't hesitate. If it's one of the clubs favorite places, I've got to see it. So I'm practically counting the days till the trip in May and am looking forward to many more trips with SD.

Dominica was my first SD trip. I had been eyeing Madives but held off until I know SD was for me. And yes it was! Someone on the trip said how each person had qualities they enjoyed. So true. You could interact with a different person at every opportunity and your life was richer for it. It reminded me of the saying, "Travel is the only thing you spend money on that makes you rich." I have booked the Maldives with so much joy and eying more. Thank you Kamala and the people that make SD what it is.

I am so excited to have found a dive club. I think they are so important to be a part of. You meet new divers, learn the best spots to dive. Share pictures and stories. I can't wait to meet other members and go on trips with everyone.

Hello, I was on a trip to Bonaire and was diving alone, lucky for me SingleDivers were there also. This group of strangers adopted me immediately allowed me to dive,eat and enjoy the company of like mined divers. THANK YOU to all in this group, I had a wonderful time. Kamala you and your group are amazing and I feel privileged to have met you. I hope to be able to dive with this group again soon.
This is my first time in a forum so please advise of my mistakes on protocol

What Kamala said about the "feeling" is completely true. Being on two different trips, two different locations (6 months apart) and only knowing 2 of the 20 people on the trip from the previous trip this time. Even with me only knowing two people from the Roatan trip the Bonaire trip still had a very similar feeling to the Roatan trip. Every group is a little different but overall it's a great group of people.

New to the club and once I got my membership upgraded, the website was very intuitive once things got rolling. Thanks for the help WreckWench, and Dive_Sail_Etc too. Looking forward to reaching my favorite health SPA, 80-90 ft below sea level at Bonaire :-) So glad that I discovered Single Divers, so many options to choose and plan for throughout the year. You know, life use to be a 'sunny beach', then I learn to dive :-) Get with it! Dive for fun, dive for life!
