I haven’t posted anything here for quite some time, mainly because it’s winter and the water around here is solid, hence no diving for me, so no posts. As we enter the coldest, bleakest month of the winter season, my thoughts are split between remembering the past dive season and planning for the upcoming season.
Last year was a pretty dismal season for the dive industry I think. The economy was bad and that hurt, especially around here, the heart of the American auto industry. Course enrollments were down, charter trips weren’t running full and overall interest in technical diving was virtually non-existent.
So I’m curious, what do you folks envision yourselves doing, diving-wise, in the summer of 2010? I ask for two reasons: idle curiosity and business planning. I’m just plain curious what people want to do. Are you interested in diving any particular wrecks? Do you plan to further your dive education? I’m also interested in feedback so I can integrate it into my upcoming course and trip offerings.
So please, feel free to post what kind of diving activities you’re thinking of for this season, or post if you’re not going to dive at all. Thanks.
