My girlfriend came up with the idea to vacation in September (would it be too cold)..and it hit me. I've always wanted to go diving...and now that I'm a Reefer I'd really like to hit up some coral reefs. How much is diving gear? I'd like semi-nice gear cause I'd like to go yearly if I fall in love with it... Also how long does it take to get certified and such? I really appreciate your help!
