Off to the Channel Islands for 4 days of diving...!!! I am so excited.

In a little more than 24-hours, many of us will be on the road or catching a flight to Santa Barbara, California. We're setting off for 4 days of diving on a Truth Aquatics Liveaboard in the glorious Northern Channel Islands.

It's been 10 years, and over 1600 dives since I've been to the islands and many years since my last liveaboard. I am sooooo excited...!!! The variety of animals, the kelp forests, and the full service that comes with being able to have an extended stay on a dive boat is one of the best parts about diving I've grown to love.

The years of teaching others to dive has been so incredibly fulfilling. Being able to share my passion with you and see how you've evolved into the greatest divers I've ever known is what keeps me going. Diving is fun, but sharing it with all of you is a dream come true.

I know that there are those out there that have just started. One day you'll be able to look back and see how far you've come, will be amazed at what you've seen, and best of all, have memories of the experiences that have truly shaped your lives.

Occasionally, I think to myself, I hope I will still be able to do this when 50, 60, and 70... but the truth is, I can't imagine doing anything else. Thank you for helping me get here and thank you for helping me continue to do it.

I'll be back in a week!
