After a great entry experience I was determined to become a real SCUBA diver, so on my return to Wellington I joined a mid-winter dive course. The water was cold, there was poor visibility, and I became fascinated by the undersea world. August 1994 was a benchmark time for me.
From my early dives in Wellington I was impressed by the diversity of dive sites, the incredible range of marine life, and wide range of activities one could follow when just 'out diving'. I could study fish, plant, and animal life, take photographs, or research artefacts or shipwrecks. As there were few references which were exclusively Wellington oriented, I gathered local dive information and share my findings on the web in The Wellington Dive Guide. My interests later evolved to maritime archaeology and I became an active member of MAANZ, the Maritime Archaeological Association of New Zealand
