Default Need to recert, tips or pointers?

Just moved to the area, was certified in 1998 but did checkout dives in Grand Cayman and they never faxed the paperwork to the place I took the classes...needless to say I'm not certified now.



I live in Navarre, looking to get back into scuba (ideally from a kayak!) and try some spearfishing. Not exactly swimming in cash these days, but then who is. I have 0 gear.



Looking forward to hearing your suggestions about where to go and who to talk to.

You may just need to do a referral from your original certifying organization and complete your open water dives here locally. My nephew just certified through Dive Pros and a referral from Louisianna came over for his open water check out dives even though he took his classroom back in August. Dive Pros does NAUI and PADI certs, so I hope they canhelp you out.

Call them between10 a.m. and 6 p.m. at 456-8845 seven days a week. - Ric

I think the place I originally took the classes from is out of business. Not many dive shops in landlocked appalachia, heh. I don't remember anything anyway, so I should probably start fresh. I'll give them a call and let 'em know I was referred. Thanks!!
