’Chaplain Skip’ from The Woodlands TX | Scuba Diver

Hi... my name is Skip. I had always wanted to get my SCUBA certs ... just never had the time or the money (or had the $ at the same time as I had the time???). Anyway... got my OW in July 2009. Finished my Nitrox. Finshed my Advanced in August. I am a NAUI accredited First Aid/CPR/AED/O2 Instructor... so, if you need your certification and are in the Houston area, let me know! I got my PADI Rescue Diver in Feb 2011 and just completed my PDIC Dive Supervisor certification! In May of 2012 I completed my PADI Master Scuba Diver ceritification.

True... only been diving since the summer of ’09... but, as of 7/23/13, have 186 dives! (Can you say, "Hooked!" - no pun intended).

Have been to Cozumel, the Bahamas (on a liveaboard), Antigua, Barbados, St. Lucia, Tortola, Turks & Caicos, St. Thomas, Key West, Moorea, Rangiroa, Raiatea, Bora Bora, etc.

My beautiful wife, Cindy, and I travel a couple of times per year and would love to meet up and dive... mainly because I can’t talk her into taking the class. HOWEVER, our youngest just got her OW certification! I am so thrilled for her.

Finally... I am also ordained as a non-denominational Pastor... and, as such, can officate weddings (or Renewal of Vows!). Looking for dive buddies in southeast Texas... and beyond.

Skip! Great to hear from you. Glad we got to chat at the EMS conference. I still feel you need to take the Divemaster course, you would be a great candidate! Hope to blow some bubbles with you soon... plan a dive at the Comal River with us before too long!

Where did you dive when you were getting certified for Nitrox? That’s what I’m wanting to do next.

Hello Skipster,

How’s it going today? I just got my OW in July. I’ve got 8 logged dives and am totally addicted to this sport, I never knew I could have so much fun. I have been looking for a buddy since my certification, no luck so far. I’m hoping I can find someone around here that will want to go diving. If you’re interested or your daughter is please get back to me.

Thanks and have a great evening,

I have the Sea & Sea DX-1G set up with the attachable wide angle lens and the YS110 strobe. Here’s a link to the site. I tried to link right to the specific page but for some reason it won’t do it. Once you click on the link and get to the site you’ll want to find the "Compact Digital Camera Systems"
