Women in Diving - Karee


So many awesome women divers to introduce you to! Meet Karee! Karee and Page (previously featured) started diving with us 'a wonderfully long time' in her words :) She's a member of 'the girls' as we affectionately call them who board our boat once a year for a week full of laughter and diving. We love what she had to say about thinking she wouldn't be diving long when she first got certified - but now, 19 years later, centers her vacations around the underwater world. Diving's like that - once the bug gets you, there's no getting out! We hope at least one of her vacations a year keeps bringing her back to the beautiful waters of TCI!

What else can you tell us about your diving journey to date? (any obstacles you’ve over come, what has surprised you, loved, etc): It took 4 years to get over significant anxiety with diving....it finally clicked when I dumped some weight and mastered buoyancy control with advanced training. It’s like riding a bike—you only need to “get it” once. In the beginning I was sure I wouldn’t be diving long. 19 years later, all of my trips are centered around the beautiful underwater world.
