As many of you know, I have had difficulty in recent years scuba diving due to extreme anxiety. Whenever i get a significant distance from the boat or shore I get a surge of anxiety and rapid heartbeat. I know in my head that I am not in any real danger, buI have usually aborted dives at that point due to fear of panicking (which *would* be real danger). So drift diving, night diving and the like are right out for the foreseeable future.
However, I can still freedive and am still quite comfy tooling around without a tank at 35-45' depth. (go figure) I can even venture a good bit of distance from an anchored boat, since I can always return quickly with a few swift kicks of my long fins.
I am not sure if I will ever get my scuba mojo back, but I don't want to be away from the water either. Does anyone know of destinations or dive outfits that cater to freedivers?
Thanks for any and all info!!!
