My family and I enjoy our annual visits to St. Maarten for a number of reasons.....great weather, great food, good shopping, and.....lots of snorkeling and for me scuba diving. The folks at CDC have become not only teachers and mentors in scuba diving, but friends as well. They are absolutely great to dive with and be around.
This year I had heard about a new (to me) way to scuba dive called side mount diving. Michel at CDC mentioned it on their FB page so I checked it out. Instead of a tank on your back, this is tanks mounted on your side, giving you more safety and maneuverability. I wasn't sure if I should try something like this even though I am certified for advanced open water since I am 63 and wasn't sure exactly how this would work. Michel assured me I would do fine and would really enjoy it. He was right as usual. After two days of training and three dives, I am hooked! If you are coming to St. Maarten and enjoy diving, you need to check this out. Or, just plan a trip to come and learn this technique. Michel, Kelly and the staff at CDC will make sure you have a great time and come away with the skills you need to enjoy a new way of diving.
