Living in Anchor Point and finally getting my butt in gear to start diving here. I am looking for people willing to take along someone with no local diving knowledge. I have my PADI divemaster and rescue diver certs. Learned to dive and about half of my diving in Monterey CA (average temps in the low to mid 50). Also, a few in Mexico and a bunch in FL and HI. I have done many solos but always somewhere I was super familiar with so not even gonna try here. Have all my own gear. Would just need to get tanks recertified. And make sure the dry suit zipper is still dry :)

Would love to finally get in the water here. Talked to a few locals over the years but never got anything going.

Their are couple facebook groups to check out "the alaska just go diving club" not really a club and "alaska diving". most people currently are diving in Whittier and Seward during the winter. I know people dive out of homer by yukon island. To get your tanks serviced check out dive alaska or last frontier diving in anchorage.

Thanks Skipper. I'll have to check the fb groups out. Got my tanks last looked at by last frontier about 8 years ago! Won't get redone til I'm ready to use again.

I do quite a bit of diving around the peninsula. Homer, and Seward have good diving. Whittier is where most of us dive in the winter.
I get my tanks filled in Nikiski, not as cheep as last frontier but I dont have to drive 6 hours to get a fill, I can also get a viz and hydro in Nikiski.
Feel free to shoot me a text or call with questions and I'd be happy to talk diving. (907)252-0709
