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 to your professional staff for the great dive day today. Despite the fact that I was sea sick over half of the ride, the dives were excellent. I will share my experience with others looking to dive in this area. Thanks

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

Thanks again, Arthur Carter

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
