Florrie from Springville UT | Scuba Diver

Looking for advice from other divers about great coastal towns with great diving. Planning to pick up and move with my two brother and myself, finding about 10 acres to build our homes. Love lobster, clams, fish, etc to dive for along with scenic reefs and aquatic activity with a large variety of sea life. Also where a rise in home building and construction jobs are prevalent for work.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks :)

Hello dive buddies,
I wish I had more opps to dive, as things are changing for me due to physical disabilities, I know diving is the one thing that makes me feel ’normal’ and all my pain seems to disappear when I’m underwater.
My condition will now only allow me to dive in a warmer climate where I wouldn’t need a wetsuit because of nerve damage to my thigh, I cannot have anything, such as clothing, blankets, etc...touching my left thigh without tremendous pain. Even the impact of walking causes the sensitive skin on my thigh to feel like I’m being shocked with a tazer.
So a wheelchair is the most comfortable way for me to get around, so If there are any trips that fit my needs I would love to be in the loop. It would be the most comfortable and effective physical therapy I could do for myself.
Thanks for listening :)

I was certified in 1989, but after years of moving and losing my ID, I was able to go to and with minimal information required about myself, I was able to print out a temporary ID and choose from several designs, uploading my photo, and certification date and other pertinent info on the credit card-style one they send soon after. I can’t recall the fee, but it was less than $25.
