FAQ's about Rebecca:

Favorite dive site? The USS Duane in Key Largo- i love wreck diving!

Favorite dive story? The first time that I swam with a whale shark- it was amazing to be able to swim with such a large and beautiful creature

Why did I learn to dive? I wish i would have learned earlier in my life but i did it because of the urging of my husband. I am naturally very claustrophobic so i always thought i could not do this. I participated in a Discover Scuba in Cozumel and found out that scuba is liberating- I've been in love with it ever since. It has changed my life!

FAQ's about Jamie:

Why did I learn to dive? I got my open water certification while in college in 1991 since I loved the water and spent everyday that I could on the lake and it was a good elective for college. Due to life, I got away from it until 2016 when some friends invited to dive Lake Ouachita in Arkansas to do a little spearfishing. Since the first day I went back to diving, I have finished Advanced, Rescue, and Divemaster. I continue to go to Lake Ouachita at least twice a year to spearfish.

My favorite dive site? Cozumel and Lake Ouachita
