Hey, I just got stationed at JBLM, and I am interested in getting my drysuit cert. I got a good deal on a new drysuit right before I moved here, but didn’t have time to get certified through the dive shop where I got it. Also, I need some dive buddies! I’m PADI AOW, with a few NASE specialty courses, ~150 logged dives.

Welcome to the Pacific North-Wet!

JBLM has the NW Adventure Center: https://jblm.armymwr.com/programs/scuba

There are a few dive shops down there too- Underwater Sport is PADI, Lighthouse is NAUI. Not been to Tacoma Scuba, so not sure what they have, I just know they are there.

cheers!

You won't find a better dry suit instructor than Matt Liebl in Tacoma. He not only started with drysuits while still in his teens, he also worked with a NW drysuit manufacture helping to design and sell suits.

Thanks for your service.
