The video you are about to witness is THE BEST MAINE SCUBA DIVING VIDEO. EVER. ON EARTH. AND POSSIBLY EUROPA. We may be slightly biased in say so, but hey, we created it just for you & your pretty eyes.
YOUR VIDEO's STORY
All scenes were recorded in Maine, primarily at the Two Lights State Park dive site.
The female in the blue wetsuit with the GoPro?
Well, this is her first time diving in open water. She is completing the last 4 dives of her Open Water Course with Maine Divers. Her very first time taking a breath underwater was just 4 days ago in an indoor pool where she spent a Tuesday and Wednesday evening at the Falmouth Woodland's indoor pool. Maine Divers spends 2 evenings at the Woodland's indoor pool at the beginning of each month. She experienced the wonders of weightlessness with a dive instructor and 3 other diving newbies. Prior to that, she completed an online Open Water Dive course (~8hrs) through the Maine Diver's website to get some academic knowledge before "diving in". Pool dives are held all year 'round. Open water dives are typically held from Mar- Nov. Want to get an Open Water Dive License for your dive vacation in February? No problem. Complete the academic online training & pool dives in Maine then head down to your tropical destination with a "referral" to complete the 4 open water dives. It is a very smart move to receive as much scuba training as possible locally, that way you can spend the majority of your precious vacation time (suggestion: Utila Deep Blue Resort to dive with Whale Sharks), on vacation.
The gentleman in the black Dry Suit?
That's George Rothweiler. He is the owner of Maine Divers and there's a very good chance he'll be taking you diving as your diving instructor.
What happens after I get an Open Water Dive License?
Okay.. you've got your license and live in Maine, now what? GO DIVING!! Join Maine Divers on Meetup.com to be a part of the next group dive. Ask a Maine Diver's Dive Master to show you around the area. There's a whole underwater world to go explore. Research ship wreck locations, then go exploring. Imagine the possibilities; the ocean is your oyster, my dear friend. There is even the possibility of ice dives; the ability of today's gear is unbelievable.
