Hello fellow SDers.  It's been quite a while since I've been on this board, but I'm back and ready to get diving again.  There are a couple more steps in my diving rehab program that I was hoping to get feedback from the south FL gang:

  1. Getting my equipment serviced
  2. Getting re-acclimated to being in the water

For #1 I've selected Brownie's Southport Divers mainly because one of my diving friends from Atlanta has used them before and they service Halcyon equipment (and I don't have to schlep to High Springs to get it serviced).  I need some help with #2.  I don't want to go through a PADI Scuba Review (I think it's called Re-Activate now) mainly because I don't want some random instructor try to overweight me and get me to do the skills while on my knees.  What I'm hoping for is to find an instructor I trust and just spend some time in some confined water and get re-acquainted with being under water.  Any feedback from the south FL folks on the board?

I will include what I know of local WPB DI's that might fit this bill in the PM I promised. Meanwhile, by all means other South Florida members please chime in with suggestions

 

Go to know you are getting back in the swim, buddy! :diver:
