I'm excited to see that the Thursday Afternoon/Night dives are coming back. This will be a great opportunity to meet other divers and reconnect with old buddies.

Entry 8/8/11
When I relocated to Phoenix in August of 2009 I thought my diving would be limited. To my surprise, the Divers Training magazine arrived in my mail box with a full article about diving at Lake Pleasant, Phoenix, AZ. There was hope. It still took several months to get settled in before I began exploring my dive options. Then I remembered this web site. With some hesitation, I showed up for one of the Thursday afternoon dives. I didn't know any of the divers, and did not have a dive buddy. Chuckie and Granny invited me to join them welcoming me to the Thursday dive group. I have enjoyed many more dives with them since then. The Thursday dives have opened up opportunities to establish new friendships, and add more dive buddies names to my log book.

    Lee, I can kind of relate to your experience. I earned my open water certification in 1996 after working for a guy who owned a dive shop in Colorado as a side business. After my certification I did a few dives and kind of just gave up on it. I was fairly young when I received my certification and could not afford all of the SCUBA gear. When I moved to AZ several years ago I started making a lot of trips to San Diego and took up surfing, ocean fishing and even snorkeling. It was always in the back of mind that I had a diving certification and I can really enjoy the water a lot more if I would just get back into SCUBA diving. Eventually my older brother came to visit me from Colorado and insisted that we go SCUBA diving when we go to San Diego. I ended up purchasing most everything I needed and I ended up taking a SCUBA tune up course to refresh my memory. From that day on I was hooked.

    I ended up finding AZSCUBA while searching the internet for dive groups and dive buddies who frequent Lake Pleasant. My experience with everyone I have been diving with on Thursdays has been wonderful. The Thursday afternoon/evening dives have really been a lot of fun and has given me the opportunity to meat some really great people who love to dive. I couldn't ask for a better group to dive with.
