Are you new to local diving in New England?

I've been diving New England waters since the mid 70's. Since starting this great sport and becoming an Instructor, I taught Open Water, AOW, Deep Diver, Rescue Diver, and Instructor Cross Overs for 3 years in the Pacific Northwest for Underwater Sports of Vancouver, diving and introducing students to Puget Sound, and the Straights of Jaun Defucca, Friday Harbor, Hoodsport, and diving in high mountain lakes above 4,000 feet. Along the way, I've had the opportunity to dive and enjoy diving the California coast many times and the Channel Islands, Islands of Hawaii, Red Sea and the New England waters from upper Maine to Rhode Island. I also taught

What is your favorite dive site here in MA, if you have one?

Cape Ann has many very enjoyable dive locations both from shore and by Dive Boat. Many of the off-shore reefs, ledges, islands and wrecks present an ever increasing diversity of underwater topography, marine life and a change to grab scollops and good sized lobsters assuming you have the proper permits. Cape Ann also offers divers the ability to dive many days of the year no matter what the weather conditions because of the many inlets, islands and protected coves.
