CMD here. Certified Muff Diver. Cost me nothing but chapped lips and a sore tongue before I built my stamina up.

Re: scuba

I am. I did PADI about 8 years ago! I really liked it. I am sure the prices are not the same. I think I was in the 500-700 ball park. but it was a student discount.

Is that how you got to be a cunning linguist?

Is a paradigm worth 20 cents?

Re: scuba

went thru padi about 4 years ago. It was 175 for basic open water diver course. Plus I had to buy books (around 60 bucks), my own snorkel, fins, mask, and pay another 150 for a dive weekend in Gloucester, MA to get certified. If you can swim you can pass this class and scuba diving is wicked awesome!

Only bad thing, I spend around 3k for my gear but I had to get top of the line everything and a dry suit. You can get a nice setup for around 1k including everything you'll need.

Re: scuba

LA Divers certified in 1967 (with 3 re-certs since). Ocean only and back then it cost around 400 bucks. It's been several years since my last dive, as I broke an eardrum during an emergency ascent and it took me about 3 years to be able to even get in an airplane again.

and your girlfriend too.

Re: scuba

doesn't it hurt popping your eardrum. One of the most painful things I've ever had. After the 3rd time it stops huritng so much and now I can equalize pressure going up or down without even thinking. Only the first time it popped was while diving, the other 2 happened while wakeboarding, I should wear a helmet damnit!

Yeh, I am pretty decent at equalizing as well, but I was unconscious at the time so I didn't get it quite right . . .

Re: scuba

ok i feel a little better on the price. there are 2 shops local to here - NAUI and PADI. Both cost the same 225 or 500 for private, but the NAUI includes the equipment for the class and 5 dives, the PADI does not. I have to pay for the dive, the O2 and admission into the dive park.

I am doing this for my key west excursions

I am probalbly going to have to do the private since I can not string 2 weeks at home together.

Anybody in the nJ area wanna give me private scuba certification? Pete, not you as my muff is shaven
