If you puke KFC in the pool everyone swims through an oil slick. I know this first hand.

Did my open water dives this weekend. One tank at rainbow river. Two tanks blue grotto. What an experience! Bill Jackson’s was great.

look forward to learning more and getting out in the Gulf.

Interesting contrast compared to my OW cents. I have 2 OW certs. PADI and YMCA. PADI instructor did not follow standards, so the YMCA cert was needed.

PADI. 1 (maybe 2) dive(s) total. In 8’ near the radio towers off of Gandy bridge. Viz was 3-5’. Your checkout dives were much better.
YMCA. 4 (maybe 5) dives. Deepest was 50’. These were all done off of Key Largo in and around Pennekamp. I think this location was better.
