Web search when I moved to the Chicago area in 2010.
Wow, do I have to pick? Maybe Palau, but Philippines, and Iceland, and Australia are way up there too.
Local charter trips, fun info on different dive locations at the monthly meetings, and an expanded set of dive buddies (and my wife Holly is now a local wreck diver).
Palau; Anilao, Philippines; Silfra, Iceland; Stavsnäs, Sweden; Great Barrier Reef, Sydney, and Melbourne, Australia; Roatan; British Virgin Islands; Croatia; Maui, Hawaii; Pacific coast of Costa Rica; Monterey Bay, California; Florida keys; Atami, Japan; France and Spain on the Mediterranean side; Long Island, New York; Bonne Terre Mine. And don't forget Lake Michigan and Haigh Quarry!
Certified in 2004. Started out diving warm water only, but now 350+ dives with Rescue, Nitrox, and Dry Suit certifications.
Diving warm, and cold, around the world.
