We want to thank you guys for the great time Elias had while taking the certification class and while diving after he passed. Every one was really welcoming and nice and he had an amazing time. He can't wait to come back. The hospitality of the South lives to its standards. A special thanks to Sandra who was our first contact and made our trip happens.

Merci a tous et a bientot !

My son Kevin and I had a great time diving this past Saturday and Sunday (Labor Day weekend). Captain and mates were all top notch and we will definitely be return visitors. Here's a link to a short video hot on the Papoose on Sunday http://youtu.be/BSS33iPamYY

Divers and Friends of Goddard Sea Ventures – I thought I would share a good news story with you. Last Saturday, Oren, Russ, Yury, Amy Riggs and myself were out diving in Morehead City with Capt. Leroy of Discovery Diving. We were on our second dive at the Titan, a small tug boat that is considered “in shore.” The forecast had radically changed early Saturday morning as a cold front had dipped a little further south than expected. Winds were already picking up and there was some chop. As we came up, our camera equipment was handed up to the boat. When we got back to the dock, it was discovered that Oren’s video light had fallen off during the equipment handling at the dive site. We planned to do a search and recovery at the same site the next day. The winds picked up and all Sunday dives were cancelled. We packed up and drove home. On Monday, I received a call from Dave at Discovery informing me that a light had been recovered at the Titan by a diver from Olympus. The dive community in Morehead City was aware that Leroy had been at the Titan on Saturday, so the light was handed over to Leroy. I described Oren’s light to Dave and he confirmed that it was indeed Oren’s light. As with most dive equipment, this light is highly specialized and a bit pricey. Discovery has mailed the light back to Oren. I find it refreshing to be reminded that there are honest people who communicate among each other. Let this experience become a shining example of cooperation, no pun intended! A very special thanks to Olympus Dive Center and Discovery Diving from Goddard Sea Ventures

Thanks for the great diving over the past weeks! What an amazing place to dive, North Carolina! We will certainly be back. Your operation, from the shop, to the boats, to the crews of the boats, are exceptional. You are the best.

is is just a note of thanks to all who have touched on my experience with your operation and this course. I want to let you all know that I am very pleased and impressed with all that you have done to get me completed on this introduction to Diving. I consider all aspects of our communications, your handling of the medical forms and the actual instruction as first class and very professional. With Janelle's lead and able assistance by Sara and Christi, I felt very confident and comfortable throughout the process. I am glad to have done this and feel very good about being prepared for the appropriate diving adventures on our French Polynesia cruise in March.

THANK YOU ALL AGAIN!! Best Regards,

George Scherer
