Welcome to Smoky Mountain Divers!



The Thrill Of Diving!

 

 

 

Im Fal__! Im Fal__! Im Flying!!!

 

 

It's difficult to explain the Thrill of Scuba Diving or the comfortable, peaceful feeling a diver experiences when in a weightless state underwater. As you glide slowly over the tropical reef watching the ballet of thousands of beautifully colored marine creatures, you're immersed in a spirit of inner space that is nearly overwhelming and beckons you to stay.

 

The water is warm and clear as you search for that "perfect shot" with your underwater camera. Then you realize you've moved to the edge of the reef...to the wall, where the bottom drops thousands of feet into wonderful blue infinity. Your first emotion screams, "I'm Fal__... I'm Fal__... I'm   Flying" through this magnificent liquid universe!

   

Then sometimes you get so comfortable that, just for a couple of seconds, you no longer feel that you're underwater at all. It's then when you realize, it seems you could reach out and touch the face of God!

 Great Bonaire Trip!

 

 

We've just returned from a week in

 

Bonaire.  As always, the recreational

 

diving was great, and we even got

 

to make a Tec Dive.  Unless I missed

 

my count, one of our Guys made 31

 

dives on this trip! I know he ate

 

while in Bonaire, but I'm not sure

 

he slept during the trip.  Great Trip!
