Paradise Springs Scuba Diving

On the last day of our scuba trip, we went to a place called Paradise Springs.  Since the surface area of the water was all of about 450 square feet, there wasn’t much room for snorkelers on this trip.  This sinkhole was literally in someone’s backyard and the instructional video was shown in their garage.

Here it is.

Fun with lensbaby.  I don’t think this ring will save you as your sink 150 feet into the earth.

Scuba Mike takes the first group of divers, including my family.

Underwater photos by Nicki.  This photo is super bright, but check out the divers’ silhouette below on the dive platform.

15 feet down just below the first dive platform.

As the divers got further down, sunlight was no help and everything was seen by flashlights.  Underwater LEDs–COOL!

This was the stopping point at a depth of 92 feet.  If I were there, I would have turned away.

And here is the scuba diving crew.  I know they are stoked about this photo as they are all looking their best after those dives.

What did I do during this dive?  I took a nap in the car, of course!

But really, going on this trip was really great and I am so happy to be living my life with a schedule that allows me to do so.  Scuba Mike Convery of the Pittsburgh Scuba Center (back row in the red shirt) really hopes to get me in the SCUBA class to get certified, but I think he’s out of luck.  But you readers should!
