Jamie Hayes (jchayes) I am a marine biologist and enthusiast of all things oceanic. Whether snorkeling, diving, surfing, or sailing, I'm always excited to get in the water. I learned to dive in the beautiful waters of a Fijian lagoon, on Gau Island. Since then, my diving has taken me from cenotes in the Mexican Riviera Maya to the frigid waters off Rhode Island. I've found that no matter where you dive, there exists a separate and fascinating universe just under the surface.

I hadn't bee Scuba diving since I was 16 years old so I was nervous to start up again after so long.
I called into the shop intending to do a refresher before a trip away and ended up signing up for the Advanced open water course.
I was able to speak to the instructor at the shop and he explained clearly what my options were. I signed up to do my Advanced course and had a fantastic 2 days of diving. The visibility was terrible but Andy the instructor and dive center manager was able to make the dives great because of his ability to see things that would otherwise be totally hidden. Tiny little Nudibranches , a huge sea turtle hidden under coral and stingrays buried in the sand were some highlights.
My course and dives were professionally managed and everything was clearly explained.I...
