Women in Diving - Page
Page and Karee (You'll meet Karee later) started diving with us about 15 years ago...first there was 2, then 4, then 6 and now a full complement of 8 awesome, funny women fill our boat once a year for one of our most fun weeks! She is a confident and competent diver, and she and Karee instilled confidence and good dive skills in the divers that came after them! We appreciate their humor, their competence, their love of the marine world, and their friendship, and look forward to their visit each year!
