First off, I would like to thank Richard for creating this community and the platform to communicate with each other during these challenging times. I was looking forward to meeting some of you in Maui before the effects the pandemic took hold; we were actually on the island waiting for some of you to join us!
I have not racked up a lot of dives yet, but have been very fortunate to have travelled to some exotic locations to pursue this shared passion of ours. I am looking forward to my first live aboard adventure in Socorro later this year (fingers crossed) and have been dreaming of French Polynesia and the Red Sea for quite some time. That all being said, I think every dive presents an opportunity for a chance encounter and to marvel at nature’s wonder and beauty. For instance, when you book a shark dive and much larger finned friends decide to pay you a visit or when a turtle thinks your camera may look edible right up until the very last second.
So with that I guess would ask others to chime in... where are your favourite dive locations? Or perhaps some of your favourite encounters under the sea?
Stay safe out there!
