Im all late posting but I did my first dive since becoming certified last November (2018). I was able to rent my dive equipment from the dive and after doing so, hubs and I headed over to Vortex Springs. I was excited, but nervous, which may or may not be a good thing. I dont ever want to be overly confident.
I believe the rate to dive at Vortex has gone up some but on the day I did my dive, it was $20.00. There were plenty of divers there and a class doing their underwater skills. The one thing I will be investing in is a better pair of fins.
Below are my videos from my dive. There are a few things I noticed; after the fact. Like leaving my tank sitting up on the table.
