Default I found my new dive partner

I took my son out for our first open water dive together and the kid is far better than me. We dove 2 tanks each on the Destin Jetty's and hit bottom at 52' on both dives. I swear, he barely sucked any air, he pointed out flounder, black snapper, Spanish, and other fish (some of which I never saw.) Of course, I was mostly paying attention to him, but he's got eagle eyes. After the first few minutes I felt like he was completely comfortable underwater. I think this is gonna work out great. The best part was when we surfaced and he said "that was AWESOME!" He wants to go night flounder diving now. Yeah, I'm pretty excited. I called my current dive buddy and told him to hit the road. Lol, he laughed and agreed. Sorry no pics. Next time.

Thats Awesome. Cannot wait until my son is old enough to do things like this with him. Congrats on getting your son involved with the outdoors. '

Good deal Jeff..... Logan wants to major in marine biology in college so he wants to get certified... I have always wanted to be certified, but never got to it, so I'll probably be hooking both of us up soon!

Dave, I have a spot that's loaded with nothing but trigger. Big ones, too. That would be a good place for them.
