A late congratulations. I'm doing both PADI and SSI. I do like how SSI is a bit more stringent in the requirements. I have found they teach some different techniques (I'm speaking from the night dive specialty course that I took through SSI - Silent World). My goal is to become a master scuba diver for both SSI and PADI by the end of this year (currently PADI AOW with 2 specialties, starting my PADI rescue diver course on Thursday).

Good idea! It takes fewer courses to get SSI MD than to get PADI MD.

Congrats Paul, I think the SSI course is really the cream of the crop.

You'll love God's Pocket. Amazing density and variety of sea life. Plus Sea Lions! Bring warm undergarments; temps run lower than Puget Sound.

Cool. If you add Stress & Rescue by the time you reach 50 dives, you'll have earned your Master Diver card as well. The SSI Stress & Rescue course, together with the # of dives requirement for AOW and MSD are the reasons why I switched from PADI to SSI.

Excited...just made my AOW requirements last week. Just got card yesterday :)

Planning on making my 50th dive on a trip up to Port Hardy in October.
