  1. I love scuba diving but have only gone in warm water. My husband and I certified in a quarry where it was 50 degrees at the bottom. We vowed to never dive in cold water again. BUT this place sounds amazing. Maybe someday we will be more adventurous and try it out. Kudos to you for doing this dive!

This is why I have put off getting my dry suit certification. Is it so tight around your neck that you feel like you can’t breathe and is this dive worth a potential panic attack (the panic attack would happen while getting the suit on, not under water)? I’ve heard it feels like loosens up a bit once you are in this water, true?
