Scuba divers come on in!

I searched but didnt see a scuba thread with any kind of recent activity so i thought id start one.

I just got my certification this past weekend and am pumped to get out and start diving. Im going on vacation this weekend and so my first official dive is going to be at the epcot center aquarium. Anyone else happen to have been there before?

Also if you want to throw out your recommendations for good gear to buy for beginners thatd be great too.

Congrats dude! I got my open water a few years ago and picked up a full set off craigslist for $200. Best purchase ever! Now Im able to go whenever and wherever I want (just get a dive flag!). I haven't dove in Epcot before but heard good things.

Considering I live in South Florida, I really should get into diving. Only free dived so far.

did the Epcot dive, it was freaking awesome..... I'm afraid everything else will be kind of a let down now. I'll have pics and a video to post when I get back home next week.

Last time I checked, diving was a sport. Anyone else heard differently?

I'll recommend something for you. get drysuit and cert ASAP. checkout the diverssync podcast. and if you're diving in anything remotely cold apeks or Poseidon regs.

Drysuit diving with a good layer of undergarments will keep you plenty warm, and many people dive dry in tropical waters. I've gone as low as 36* in the same drysuit as 78*. Though I didn't wear any undergarments or hood. Diving dry is WAY warmer, and you get out and you're able to head straight to wherever you need to be.

so im going through the OW course and we get to the part about the thermocline and im thinking to myself, oh that would be cool to feel the difference in the water temps change like that... NO it isnt. that thermocline is no joke.

Also, im still gonna post some pics and a vid from the epcot dive... i just kinda maybe might have misplaced the dvd at the moment.....

I haven't dove in waters warm enough for the thermocline to even matter recently. surface temps start in the 50's And it matters less In a drysuit. And They don't compress with depth like wetsuits do so the amount of insulation you need to wear is relative only to the water temp at depth, not the depth and pressure.
Dry is sooooo much nicer.

How did you dive Epcot without the OW cert? You need the C card just to rent the gear.

We got certified the weekend before the dive.

Which speaking of cards reminds me, we also took the EANx class and have that card. Do i have to carry the OW and EANx cards when i go to rent gear or does the EANx card imply that im also OW certified?

yeah i guess it would make sense to keep them with the gear rather than in the wallet...

You guys should try spearfishing, not with your scuba gear, free diving. Tons of fun and you can catch your dinner .
